Over-the-air (OTA for short) reprogramming lets you send an update to your truck when it’s off duty to refresh specific parameters that vary depending on the engine manufacturer. Once the engine is updated, it will operate according to the new parameters. The most common use of this technology is to patch the engine with an OEM update.

Watch the video above for an overview of OTA capabilities and tips for becoming more comfortable touching your trucks remotely to improve uptime and reduce service needs.
