New FLARM Update Scheme
Based on the feedback we got about the short time span to install firmware updates, we are adapting the update scheme beginning with the March 2015 update. Read the following information carefully to ensure that your device is always kept serviceable.
A rolling release cycle is now introduced, requiring an annual update. Each update can be applied anytime during a rolling one year period. This makes it easier to align FLARM firmware updates with the yearly aircraft maintenance process. It is also in line with the maintenance care that a safety system requires.
As the update cycle now becomes individual, no generic information will be sent out on individual firmware version expirations.
Sign up now to our Newsletter to be informed when new firmware is released. You can do this in the Newsletter box at the bottom of the sidebar to the right. After clicking on the link in the email that you will receive, you will also receive information about other upcoming releases introducing additional features.
Ensure that you download the correct version for your specific device. Owners of PowerFLARM-based devices from other manufacturers should download the firmware from the respective manufacturer’s website. Owners of the old, obsolete Classic FLARM-based devices, including ones from other manufacturers, shall use the “Classic FLARM” download below. If you are not sure if your device is based on PowerFLARM or the old Classic FLARM, you can check in the Product Selector.
