Firmware update question (from 2.80 to 2.91)
« on: 2017-12-26, 13:43:45 »
Hi and Merry Christmas to all.
I own a couple of Remoterigs MKII (V. 4, HW 5) with Software 2.80 that i use with a Kenwood TS-480. This setup is working flawlessly.

As i'd like to update my RRigs to the latest 2.91 version I'm wondering if i have to make every single update in sequence (2.81 -> 2.83 -> 2.83 ... 2.91) or jump directly from 2.80 to 2.91

Another question: Is it worth updating?

Many thanks.

73, IZ4MJP
Franco

Hi Franco,

Merry Christmas to you!

This is a question for Mike to answer, but I am pretty sure there is no problem updating directly
to the newest firmware version. To be on the safe side, download your settings in a BIN file first.
No need to make incremental updates.

You can look at the feature updates on the web page, but it is for sure worthwhile updating from such
and old version.

Hi

yes you can go direct from an old version to the latest. But after update, look through the settings, it might have been added new settings which need to be setup
