Stargps on ETX...updating firmware? new
      #6088425 - 09/18/13 04:54 PM

Hi all!

I have the StarGPS software on my Meade #497 Autostar, and I don't think my firmware is up to date. I didn't do a reset as I'm afraid the GPS software will uninstall if I did that, and I don't know how to get it back. I do want to get it updated however...anyone know a solution?

Thanks in advance!

Gday Clusters

A "reset" wont affect the firmware itself ( or the StarGPS )
it just clears out some EEProm settings.
If you do need to update your firmware, all the latest firmwares and patches are listed on the StarGPS download site.
As long as you use StarGPS and the latest patch ( and select the GPS functions ), it will get reloaded.
( Ie once yr Handbox has been properly registered,
you can always use this method to reload your firmware including the StarGPS addon bits. )
