Proton has released an update for the X70’s GKUI infotainment system, which will be released over-the-air, much like a firmware update on your phone. To ensure a smooth update experience, the national carmaker also posted a step-by-step guide on the process on its Facebook page.

Once the vehicle is started, the system will automatically check for the latest update, and will prompt the driver if there is one. You’ll next need to download the update package, which does not use any of the free 1 GB per month quota that comes with the car.

After the update has been downloaded, simply start the update process, and when completed, perform a factory reset as the final step. During the update process, you’ll need to keep the car in the ACC or ON positions, and should you turn the car off, the update will be paused, only be resumed the next time you start again.

Additionally, the GKUI system will be disabled during the update process, which will take around 40 minutes with a good signal connection. The update has been made available from January 21, 2019.

The update, which carries the version number 1.2.0 2.3.3, comes with a number of changes. Among them (that) is the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) is now turned on by default; the powered side mirrors can now automatically fold in when locking/unlocking the doors on the Standard variant; and the settings menu has been updated with revised English terms and arrangement, as well as a setting for the power folding side mirrors on all variants.

Other changes include a fix whereby the user’s settings for the BLIS and Door Opening Warning System (DOW) are retained when the car is turned off. An issue where pressing the mute button could wake the car’s infotainment system when it has been switched off, has also been rectified.
