Software Update 2023.22

Trip Planning

We’ve added the following major enhancements to trip planning:

  • First phase of integration with A Better Routeplanner (ABRP), the leading electric vehicle route planning software. More ABRP features will follow in future updates.
  • Preferences that let you save preferred charging networks and arrival at a destination.
  • New Rivian Mobile App version 1.15 or later features that let you:
    • Create trip plan previews and send them to your vehicle. Search for a destination in the Explore tab, then choose Plan.
    • Adjust the departure range from the current range, so it’s easier to plan ahead.
Phone Screen

We’ve added the following new and improved smartphone features to the phone app in the center display:

  • An easier-to-navigate Contacts list with A-Z tabs.
  • Access to your contact Favorites and Recents.
  • A new dial pad with pop-up suggested numbers as you type.

Driver’s Seat and Steering Wheel Calibration

If the driver’s seat or steering wheel does not have the full range of motion, Roomy entry and exit don’t work or you’re unable to save seat or steering wheel positions to your Driver Profile, it’s likely calibration is lost.

In the past, you’d have to take your vehicle in for service to fix it. You now have the ability to do it yourself by going to Settings > Vehicle > Service on the center display, selecting Driver Seat or Steering Wheel under Driver Position Calibration, and following the instructions on the screen. This returns calibration to the original factory settings and reinstates the full range of motion.


  • The calibration process will prompt you to vacate the driver’s seat. For easier access to the center display, sit in the front passenger seat before starting calibration.
  • Calibration may affect existing Driver Profile seat and steering wheel settings, as well as Roomy entry and exit settings. If these positions don’t seem correct after calibration, readjust to your preference and save the new settings.
  • In some cases, if your vehicle detects lost calibration, a notification appears on the driver display asking if you want to calibrate. Follow the directions on the display to complete the tasks.
Additional Improvements

    • Quickened response to hot ambient conditions and stabilized operation at low-mid ambient conditions.
    • Stabilized blower airflow when the vehicle transitions in and out of varying sun and shade conditions.
    • Optimized driver and center display overheat protection thresholds to help minimize range loss when vehicles are parked in direct sunlight.
