Preparation Stage

Before starting the upgrade process, make sure that your smart lawn mower is fully charged and turned on. Additionally, you will need an OTG cable to connect your Android phone to the remote control, and ensure that the Mowrator upgrade software is installed on your phone.

Step One: Establishing a Connection

First, ensure that both the remote control and the lawn mower are powered on and have established a connection with each other. Next, use the OTG cable included in the package to connect your Android phone to the remote control. This step is crucial as it establishes the communication bridge needed for the upgrade process.

Common Issues and Solutions

  • Unable to Upgrade: Check if your phone can connect to the Internet to ensure that the latest firmware can be obtained. Also, ensure that the remote control's battery is more than 30% charged and the lawn mower's battery is also above 30%.
  • App Compatibility Issues: Note that the Mowrator firmware upgrade software currently only supports Android phones. If you are using an iPhone, you will not be able to perform the OTA firmware upgrade.


Upgrading your smart lawn mower's firmware through OTA technology allows it to receive the latest functionality updates and performance optimizations, serving your lawn maintenance needs more efficiently. Regularly checking and applying firmware updates is an important part of smart device management. Enjoy the convenience that technology offers, letting your smart lawn mower operate at its fullest potential, maintaining your lawn in perfect condition.
