My truck just installed 4.1.1 today. I Just came back from a trip so the truck sat on the driveway with batt level at 96% for 3 days. Took a quick trip to the drugstore around 4 pm and when I came home I noticed the message on my phone that 4.1.1 successfully installed.

4.1.3 came yesterday. Start your clock @Obi66

4.1.3 Provides YouTube, NBC News and Today Show while stopped. Presumably other video services will be coming.

Probably coincidence but.... (Note I took delivery on 1/16/23)

I topped off my 12v Tuesday night with my motorcycle tender. Checked yesterday AM, no updates pending.

Checked again after work yesterday, but sill nothing while in my work parking lot. Then drove to truck accessory store from work and an update applied. So strange. Somehow did it while driving.

At this point, I think it would be more strange if I started the truck in the morning and had a notification that it installed an update overnight as scheduled, I've been through the whole list above and they have all been at somewhat random times.

What's the latest PowerUp installed on your Lightning? I'll append new options as the new PowerUps come out.

If you just took delivery of your truck, it could be a month or more before you receive one as your software may still be ahead of this of us getting PowerUps.
I’m on 4.2.1 as of yesterday, but very confused as to how it happened…
Had been 400 miles away from home for 5 days. On return trip yesterday I stopped at a rest area just long enough to pee and when I got back in the truck and started up, the display went blank and then restarted with the new 4.2.1 version. I was still 200 miles from home. So how did it get the update? The only connection for 5 days prior was me using Phone as Key and Apple Car Play. Did it use my mobile phone to download the update?

And while I’m happy to have received 4.2.1 there is now a brief learning curve to find where everything is now. Love using the volume knob for temperature adjustments, that’s great! But I don’t know how to find my software version using the Sync display in the truck. I searched and searched this morning and still didn’t find it. The only way I know I have 4.2.1 is from the announcement in my Ford Pass app. So, is there a way to see the current PowerUp version from the truck?

4.1.2?

If you have had a recent update, when you go the the software update tab it will tell you the details and number again. If you haven't, there doesn't seem to be a good way to know.

Truck has its own cellular network connection.

I don’t think mine does anymore because I stopped paying for it after the 3 month feebie.
It has it either way, it just won't let you use it after the 3 months. Truck will still use for updates, location, Big Brother, etc.
