Firmware Update Scheme
Read the following information carefully to ensure that your device is always kept serviceable.
FLARM uses a rolling release cycle, 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. It is also in line with the maintenance care that a safety system requires.
As the update cycle is individual, no generic information is sent out on individual firmware expiration dates.

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 (LX8000/9000 series), see the device manual or contact the manufacturer.
