Oh, yeah, I forgot about that bit. My local workshop just loaded that software as part of the next servicing I had, which wasn't long after I did the install. Since they were already doing the other system updates, they didn't charge me for the towbar software. But otherwise, yes, if in the US and you have VIDA you could load it yourself.You need to do a software update though to do it properly, so will need to set up access to VIDA, but fortunately for you in the US, that's easy to do, unlike here in Europe where they make it all but impossible.
Or maybe a space will just do the programming bit for you...
Can you even order all the necessary parts from Polestar? Start there, because the idea might have a short life. If you can, I am sure it’s not that difficult for anyone mechanically inclined. The programming will be trickier … but PS could probably help you with that, or someone with Vida access.Has anyone installed the oem hitch themselves? Does anyone know if it requires a new rear wiring harness? Looking forward to adding it…
Yeah, so I based my statement on the parts list from that thread. Re-posting here for clarification:First, thanks to all that replied
I note Caseyh in his post above said a wiring harness is required but in stevelup ‘s post (reference to another thread) the parts list in includes a module. No wiring harness…. Any thoughts? I hope at least the four pin trailer plug/connector is part is part of it
