Active 20 Version History (Application SM15)

"Application Software" Version History For The Active 20

This is the (application) sofware that runs the User Interface for the device. It is quick and easy to update via Wi-Fi or SatSYNC, and just requires a simple restart after the update. (The other type of software update is called "Platform" and its like the Operating System on a PC/Mac) From time to time we release "Beta" versions of this application software which will include the latest features and bug fixes. With Wi-Fi or SatSYNC it is always possible to "roll-back" to an official Release Version, if so desired.
