Best regards,

The Logic IO Team

Firmware 4.77 for A9i, M10 Series and M11/M11i Series.

Firmware version 4.77 for the RTCU A9i, RTCU M10 Series and the RTCU M11/M11i Series has been released today with the following enhancements:

  • M11/M11i GPS:
    Automatic recovery of a problem in the Trimble Lassen SQ/IQ GPS firmware resulting in lack of a fix after long time without GPS-signal. This firmware release automatically recovers from this situation after maximum 7 minutes.

  • M11/M11i GPS:
    Reduced start-up time for GPS. First fix after boot now arrives approx. 50% faster.

  • GPS behaviour changed so that last known course over ground (COG) is returned when speed (SOG) is 0.

  • M11/M11i Battery support enhancement:
    Low battery now with hysteresis of approx. 5 seconds to avoid spurious low battery conditions.

  • M11/M11i Battery support enhancement:
    batIsCharging() returning true below 0 degrees Celsius when not charging has been fixed.

  • Problem with mxWait() that occasionally could reset the unit has been fixed.

  • serGetCTS() / serSetRTS() did not work in 4.76. It has now been fixed.

  • Application profile information is now cleared after a successful application background upgrade.

Upgrade to this release is only recommended in the cases where some of the listed
enhancements has been requested or are necessary by the actual application.

Please download it from www.rtcu.dk
