Ather Energy has just released its seventh Over The Air (OTA) upgrade for the Ather 450. With the update, the company aims to provide an enhanced night-riding experience and improved visibility for the dashboard.
The company has done this by adding a dark theme to the Ather 450 dashboard. Owners can manually choose between Light and Dark themes in the ‘Settings’ menu or choose the Auto feature that switches on the Dark theme between 6pm and 6am and switches to the Light theme for the rest of the day. Ather tells us that the new theme significantly reduces the amount of light on the screen and eases strain on the eyes, for a more comfortable, distraction-free ride at night.
Along with the Dark theme, Ather is pushing out features like ‘Save previous riding mode’, which automatically selects the last-used riding mode when the scooter is started, so the owner won’t have to switch unless they want to. Ather has made some other fixes and enhancements to their UI, like updating the on-screen keyboard to make it more responsive.
