    Putting the phone into airplane mode before launching the app is too risky since it still might run in the background when the airplane mode is switched off again. For Android there are apps (like NetGuard) which allow to disable wifi and mobile data permanently.

Turn the truck on as normal and I was able to use them without waiting for a possible update to start/finish.
    This is a very clever option.
