Should you choose to turn your Automatic Updates OFF but keep Notifications ON (manual setting), you will not receive Over-the-Air Updates automatically, and you will be prompted to accept the update. Keep an eye out for the  Black arrow pointing down at black, horizontal bracket to represent an over the air system update  icon on your in-vehicle screen. Click on the icon when it appears to learn more.

Even if you have Automatic Updates ON, there are some occasions when an update needs your permission to continue. When this happens, a  Locked padlock by a black arrow that points down at horizontal bracket to indicate permission is required to update  icon appears on your in-vehicle screen. Click it to learn more and accept the update.
