Re: Update Bolt Firmware. Not recommended.

I'm considering doing this firmware update myself, but would this void the warranty on my car by doing an upgrade yourself?

For a few weeks, I've been thinking to just stop at a dealer, but it feels wrong to let them do something so simple and waste a lot of time.

I suspect it would indeed void your warranty should anything happen.
But I suspect nothing will. :) A lot of us have done this with zero problems.

This update is great! No more unavailable camera at low speeds (I was at v13.4)

I decided to go to the dealer for this update. But so far they are terrible.
First I called them last week to ask whether I needed an appointment for a firmware update of my Bolt. They told me to it was first come first serve on Saturday. But when I got there Saturday morning they told me I needed an appointment since there was no technician that could do electrical cars.
So made an appointment for 7am this morning. But when I got there again, the technician was not there and got told he had a doctor's appointment and to come back at 1pm.

I hope they will be able to do it today at 1pm, if not I'll plug in my own USB and do the update myself.

I have noticed the same thing at my Chevrolet dealer. You can't simply come in for anything, you have to set up an appointment. Just because I have a bolt, the dealer cannot even give me an appointment unless it's at least two weeks out. I have abandoned the idea of going to the dealer for anything unless it's an absolute warranty issue. It seems like GM is not really supporting this car like their other top sellers. I guess that was to be expected somewhat.
