Zwift RunPod firmware

If you haven’t updated your RunPod firmware (via MilestonePod App), please check it out by downloading it after you pair on Zwift in-game. Let us know if you’ve seen improvements in your running experience, or if you are finding any issues.

Firmware is updated via the Milestone App, correct? Are you saying this is done WHILE the pod is paired with a Zwift session? I did not think that was possible since a BTLE device can only have one active pairing.

Yeah need more clarification on this. Just checked and neither the Milestone app nor Zwift say anything about a new firmware. Is firmware checking going to be part of Zwift?

When you pair the RunPod to Zwift, Zwift will recognize if the firmware is outdated. A prompt will come up on the screen asking you to update the RunPod’s firmware. It takes about 3 minutes or so. It should be possible to update through the MilestonePod app, but it’s easier to do this in Zwift instead.

Same here. I ran in Zwift today and it didn’t say anything about a firmware update. No firmware update from the Milestone app either.

Mine updated through the milestone app, it threw an error near the end of the update but hasn’t asked to update again so assume it actually completed, is there a way to check firmware / force an update? I’m struggling with hitting the higher speeds in Zwift still.

To check the current firmware version or battery life of your footpod, tap the footpod icon in the Milestone app and a popup will display this information. The latest firmware is version 4.0.52.

I had to install the Milestonepod app to check my firmware version and I only have 3.0.76. What’s new in 4.0.52 and is there any way to force an update?

Hey there - are you using a MilestonePod or the Zwift RunPod?

I’m using the MilestonePod.

Thanks for that info - the MilestonePod is not currently able to update firmware in-game on Zwift. You’ll still need to check that via MilestonePod App, which it looks like you’ve done. If it isn’t prompting a firmware, then you’re all up to date :slight_smile: The 4.0.52 firmware is for the Zwift RunPod.

Thanks, but this seems to suggest that the Zwift RunPod isn’t just a rebadged MilestonePod. Time to buy one then.
