Remarks

  • Flasher doesn’t work with a COM-Port higher than 9. Please read the instructions from Flytec.
  • The upgrade tool shows “Erasing flash memory”. This is referring to the firmware flash memory. Usually no track data on the logger is changed or deleted during firmware upgrade. Nevertheless no upgrade should be performed if tracks from the internal flash storage of the logger need to be kept.
