Segway Ninebot has released a firmware update for their ES line of kick scooters.

The latest firmware update will optimize the scooter for hill climbing, braking, engine speaker connectivity and will provide further improvements for firmware updates in the future.

Why does Segway release firmware updates?

As many devices are connected to their mobile applications, they can transmit anonymous data to Segway. Within this data, their systems detect anomalies that are then studied to learn what causes this behavior. Often a solution is created with their software source code and is applied by their engineers.

After rigorous testing with the new code in place, they release this firmware update to the people they have registered in their system as owners of ES kick scooters.

Should You Update the Firmware?

It is always a good idea to have the latest firmware update installed on your system. This will make sure your vehicle is operating properly as intended by the manufacturer.
