Version 126.96.36.199 (Version 2 only)
There is a new update ready for you!
Whether you think the COVID pandemic will destroy humanity, or doesn't actually exist... how about a helpful live visual of current infections, and total mortality around the world? Geochron's COVID-19 layer updates daily and draws from an aggregated database with excellent credentials: Johns Hopkins University's COVID report drawing from at least 35 reporting agencies worldwide showing Confirmed Cases (Total Mortalities).
It's the best we could find, and it will be beautifully rendered on your Geochron Version 2 as soon as you select the "Download System Update" button (Menu / System tab). It needs to be connected to the Internet by ethernet or WIFI. The Version 2 will soon reboot after you select the button, download the update (10-30 minute) and reboot again.
This is a big 1 gigabyte update. Expect 10 - 30 minutes to download, and DON'T PULL THE POWER while it's updating since that will damage it (actually, any computer!) If your Version 2 behaves unexpectedly, please contact us before you the pull the plug.
You will lose your settings and pin locations.
How does this compare to the Atlas?
This update brings Version 2 up to date with all the options of an Atlas, but the Version 2 will never be as fast as the Atlas. At some point in the future, Geochron will stop updating Version 2 simply because the hardware can't keep up.
Does this update apply to Version 1?
No. If you missed the opportunity to update to Version 2 in 2019, you can have us upgrade your Geochron to Version 2 here.
