The following procedure addresses how one would populate a Flash memory card (Compact Flash or mSD) with software update files to update one of the listed remote products using a supported Multifunction Display (MFD) and then use this memory card to update the Remote Device software.

Please note that product software updates may revert some of the Device configuration settings back to the default settings. As such, it is recommended that customers make note of the configuration settings so that they may be used to reconfigure the Device settings after the Device software has been updated. With regards to the SPX Autopilots the device must be recalibrated after any update has been performed.

Populating a Memory Card (Compact Flash/mSD) with the MFD Software

  1. Insert a compatiblememory card into the computer's memory card reader or into a memory card reader which has been interfaced to the computer.
  2. Select the appropriate software download for your product
    Note: For both G Series and a/c/e/gS Series, there are multiple options depending on the software installed in your MFD.
  3. Upon completion of the download, click on the downloaded file to open it
  4. Copy all files to the Root of the Flash card (Root is the first level you access when selecting the Flash card from the drive options).Make sure the files are not in any folders on the card
    For example, if your computer has assigned Removable Disk (E:) to your memory card reader/writer, then the software update files (i.e. the DOB and PKG files alone) should be copied directly to Removable Disk (E:), not to any folders created on the memory card.
  5. Remove the memory card from the computer's memory card reader.

Updating the Remote Device

The next stage is to update the remote device using your MFD. Please choose the appropriate instructions below depending on what MFD you are using to perform the update. This update must be performed on all connected devices of the same model in the system. If there is connected devices of the same model in the system with different software versions you may experience spurious issues.

Note: Software updates do not have to be performed sequentially unless stated. It is fine to update from version 2.00 to version 5.00 and miss both version 3.00 and 4.00 if you have not previously installed them. All necessary information for the units to operate are included in the latest update.
