Version (Atlas only)

There is a new update ready for you!  Thanks to our observant users who pinpointed issues that we hadn't seen yet... they're fixed.

To receive this update, just reboot your Geochron Atlas (power button / reboot) or select the "Download System Update" (Menu / System tab).  It needs to be connected to the Internet by ethernet or WIFI.   The Atlas will reboot.   

Please note: pulling the power while it's rebooting will damage the Atlas.  Actually, any computer!

Read below to find out what you may be missing if you don't update!


05-01-2020: Scrolling Pin List, Stability Improvements (Atlas only)

Version (Atlas only)

– Number of custom pins in-use is now displayed, alongside the maximum count of 50
– Pins are now in a scrolling list, so if you add more than fit on the screen, you can still navigate to them!
– Set-up new software testing system to limit interruptions to normal updates.
– Miscellaneous stability improvements

Fixed bugs:
– Full Factory Reset could sometimes prevent updates in the future.
– Sometimes software would update, but the version number would not.
– Updated ‘factory software’ reset bundles to prevent related issues from reoccurring.
