The update is available as a free download on the REI website. Firmware and installation instructions for keypad models and HX (touchscreen) models are different; so it is important to choose the correct model update.
Firmware updates incorporate bugfixes and performance enhancements that are often invisible to the user.
New Spectrum View for HX Models
The firmware update for *HX (touchscreen) models includes Spectrum View, a new software feature that shows spectrum display of the 2nd and 3rd harmonics.
The Spectrum View can show a 2nd or 3rd harmonic response before it registers on the LED bar graph. It can also improve discrimination between semiconductors and false responses.
Current production models are shipping with this latest firmware.
