Speedangle have released a new firmware upgrade for 2015 models. [Non External Antenna Models Only]
The major new features include:
The option to turn an additional satellite system on. Double Constellation GPS-GLONASS Receiver.
It current model was GPS only; from now on it is GPS and GLONASS by default. The benefit of adding GLONASS is quicker fix with more satellites locked on to at the same time. This way, the your SpeedAngle will get good GPS signals even if the device is turned on just before he/she starts riding. The downside is that the trace recorded will be just a not quite as neat as GPS Only. GLONASS can be turned off via the System Menu.
The option to adjust sensor vibration filter setting according to the customer's riding condition.
The user can change the filter setting in System Menu. There are three levels available: high, mid, and low. The higher the setting, the more vibration will be filtered out. This also means that quick body movements during a turn may be mistaken as vibrations and filtered out. So we suggest to use Mid for most bikes, Low for smooth bikes, and High for high vibration bikes. If the rider tends to adjust body positions several times during a turn trying to find a suitable lean angle, consider setting the filter lower.
The companion software R4 also has a new release version 01.43. Besides some minor bug fixes, the major feature is the ability to complete a device firmware update by the user. This feature is available in the download dialog.
