The software of CAN adapters - LV-CAN200, ALL-CAN300 and CAN-CONTROL can now be updated Over The Air by using FOTA WEB and one of the FMB1YX devices. Upgrading the software of CAN adapter will add more program numbers, thus, more vehicle models will be supported.

Please note, that only the newer version of LV-CAN200 and ALL-CAN300 CAN adapters support this feature. The version of the CAN adapter can be checked by sending an SMS command lvcangetinfo. If, in the response message, "SWRev:" is 145, the CAN adapter is older and if it is 245, the adapter is newer. It does not apply to CAN-CONTROL - all CAN-CONTROL adapters support firmware updates over the air.

In order to update your device‘s firmware please follow a quick and simple step-by-step guide below. The procedure is the same for all devices.

  • FMB1YX device, which is connected to the CAN adapter (or FMB140 which has an internal CAN adapter), must be registered in FOTA WEB – device‘s model, firmware version, serial number, and other information must be shown.
  • FMB1YX device, which is connected to the CAN adapter, must have a correct firmware version uploaded. Currently, this feature is supported from firmware 03.25.15.Rev.143 (FMB140 Firmware version), however it is suggested to use Firmware version which is 03.25.16.Rev.410 FMB140. If you want to update your CAN Adapter, please contact your local Teltonika sales manager or Teltonika GPS technical support. Once a device with the correct firmware version connects to FOTA WEB on the next scheduled connection (or instant connection, initiated by an SMS command "web_connect"), a small, blue, „CAN“ logo will appear next to the device‘s model. And current version of the CAN adapter software can be checked in the table on the right.
