Firmware update

Always keep your robot lawn mower up to date

As a general rule, do not confuse the mower firmware update with updates to the Einhell Connect App. If the app receives an update, this does not have to be transferred to the mower (currently it is also not possible to update the mower via the app). If an update of the mower becomes necessary, you can download it from the section below (the BIN file does not need to be unzipped).
