After the successful launch of the beta firmware auto-updater app for Fly6 CE, we are pleased to extend compatibility to the Fly12 CE

Our popular firmware auto-updater app is now ready for use with your Fly12 CE. The app will take care of your firmware updates just by connecting your Fly and letting the app do the rest. Simply download the Mac or PC version of the app from the link below, open it up from your desktop and follow the instructions. Your firmware will be updated automatically to the latest version, and future firmware updates will be completely hassle-free! The easier your Cycliq is to use, the safer you'll be on the road. And with great new safety features and bug fixes being released, it will be much easier to make your Cycliq experience as simple and safe as possible.  



  Please note:

  • macOS operating systems prior to Mojave (10.14) do not support the Firmware Auto-updater
