Just a reminder the Canopy Mode Radar feature will only work if you have a landing area selected, check your regular DZ list in the Cloud, if the landing areas aren’t saved click on ‘recommmend a DZ’ and let us know the coordinates and names of them and we will add them ASAP :slight_smile:


Im having trouble updating mine. Its getting to 90% and says "Failed to download ‘esp32fw_v11_3.unu’

Got to play with the Canopy Mode today; top job dev team, works brilliantly.


Got problems with the sync after the update. All jumps are synched,but in the cloud some are missing.

Getting the sync problem as well. It seems to not be logging aircraft takeoff time properly.

Thanks for reporting guys, the dev team have already created a fix, we are testing it and will get it rolled out ASAP, anyone who has had actions upload with funky dates, these will be corrected, we will do a sweep once the update is rolled out.
@Sascha I will look into your missing actions for you, I will send you an email so we can figure out which are missing

Hey, was a normal jump, not a hop and pop - and the message was still on screen well into freefall :-/

I have marked for review :slight_smile:

Got to extensively test the new firmware last week.

Here are some quick thoughts, but I’m probably forgetting something.

First and foremost is the DZ direction indicator. I like that it’s made available now… however, it’s not really usable. Two problems exist:

1st Problem: It’s at the top of the screen. The most important information should be at the top of the screen… that’s the altitude. Putting the direction indicator at the top of the screen prioritizes that information vs the altitude, and I’m sure everyone agrees it’s far more important to know your altitude than the direction to the DZ.

2nd problem: The indicator is too small and the color scheme is, quite frankly, ludicrous. First on the size… it’s a tiny little circle, which in and of itself is fine, but the direction indicator is a thin little blue arrow. It’s virtually impossible to see in sunlight and with the unit mounted on your wrist. The size is ok (just ok, not great) when it’s on a mudflap, but completely unusable when it’s on the wrist, unless you have T-Rex arms. But the real problem is the color. A white circle with a blue, thin arrow is a terrible color combination. There is no contrast to speak of and I simply couldn’t find the arrow in bright sun, so combining that with the size, it was basically a useless display item, as it couldn’t be used.

Please change the location to the bottom, make the circle bigger, and change the color scheme to have maximum contrast. Perhaps even remove the white circle all together and put a bright arrow showing direction.

The next problem I noticed, and perhaps it existed before this firmware, was the DZ updating. It goes in to DZ updating mode even if there’s no wifi, and the unit is basically locked up until it times out, which is an extraordinarily long time. So the unit becomes unusable, unless you are taking off, until it’s done trying to update. Please stop this. Allow me to cancel the update and manually pick a new DZ.

I have more, but can’t think of it off the top of my head.

Some very small changes which are mostly bug fixes and improvements to SD card stability, if you have noticed a take-off timestamp issue when using v7.0.9 this was corrected in v7.0.11, nothing else of great note in this one but plenty more updates coming soon :slight_smile:


Another small bug fix for jumplog processing has just been rolled out in v7.0.12, for anyone experiencing a NRDY issue this should correct the problem :slight_smile:
