Kobold VR300 robot vacuum cleaner software update

The software of the Kobold robot vacuum cleaner VR300 is continuously developed and optimized by Vorwerk engineers. We therefore recommend that you always keep the software of your VR300 up-to-date (current version: 4.6.3). There are two ways you can update the robot vacuum cleaner’s software.

1. Update via the App

Download the latest version and install it on the vacuum robot as described below. The easiest way to update the software is via the MyKobold app – you can find it here:

Please make sure that your robot is at the base station. As soon as your robot is connected to the app, you will be asked to update the software directly in the app.
