What's the most current firmware for Ride Control?
Why did you have to push your bikes nearly a mile up a hill? Battery dead and you weren't able to ride?Ah, found it. It's in APPS, there's a menu item at the bottom for updates, and sure enough there's one for Giant Ride Control, but it appears to have already been updated.
I still don't see a place to even check bike firmware version.
App version 1.4.2 - 43.9mb
It does say it 'will automatically update your bikes's firmware.' And a blurb about the walk assist. I wasn't aware it didn't work, but then I've never tried to use it. Would have come in hand last saturday - we had to push the bikes nearly a mile up a hill. OMG.
Wife's hub-drive quit on her bike. Likely blew the controller. She had it in 7th gear pas 3 for climbing. I think it smoked the controller - will have a replacement in a few days. Or I'll buy her a new bike. LOLWhy did you have to push your bikes nearly a mile up a hill? Battery dead and you weren't able to ride?
And where did you hear/read that walk assist wasn't working? It certainly has been working for me on my 2019 Explore E+1. And my RideControl EVO hasn't been updated. Yet.
The update simply changes the way you enable walk assist (from my understanding). And maybe some other changes or improvements.
Really? That's a bummer! If that's the case, unless there is some other significant reason to update the firmware, I'll stick with the version I have. I often use the walk function... with a loaded bike pushing it up our loading ramp is just a lot easier with walk assist and I often end up holding/directing the bike with just one hand. In my case, I'd hate to have to keep holding a button to use walk assist.When I went to pick up my new Revolt E+ Pro 10 days ago, my dealer started showing me how the various controls work and when he got to the walk assist function, he couldn't make it work (this was the first 2020 model he had in the store). So he kept the bike and talked to Giant, and they had him download new firmware, with an updated walk assist function. I haven't used it, but apparently you could previously activate it and take your hands off the button, but now you have to keep your hand on a button for it to run. Safety issue, I guess.
