How to Update your TraqDash

How to video or follow the instructions below:
https://youtu.be/4x0cen6of8I

The TraqDash is unique in that it stores all of it's data on the SD card. You no longer need to connect the unit to a computer to update it and you can simply drag and drop the new software releases right to the SD card and the TraqDash will take care of the rest.

Step 1 - Remove the SD card from the TraqDash
Step 2 - Insert the SD card into your Card Reader
Step 3 - Find or Open the card using the windows pop up. The card will be shown in 'My Computer' as another drive.
Step 4 - Double click and open the SD Card, you will see two folders 'My Sessions' and 'Config Files'. You may see files such as 'tdfirmware280.tqc' or 'sufirm280.tqc'. These are firmware files and can remain on the card or be deleted. Newer versions of software will always have the '.tqc' extension.
Step 5 - Download the latest version of software below.
Step 6 - Locate the downloaded file on your computer and copy that file to the SD Card in top level folder. You can just drag and drop it right into the SD card or paste it. When you are completed you should see the new file alongside the MySessions and ConfigFiles folders.
Step 7 - If there is an update for your Sensor Unit you can follow the same steps and place the file on the SD card.
Step 8 - When copying is complete, remove the SD card from your computer and place it in the TraqDash.
Step 9 - Power on your TraqDash. If you performed the steps correctly you will get a popup message alerting you that there is a new software version available. Confirm and continue the install. Wait for the installation to finish. You should see a progress bar during the update process.
Step 10 - After about 3 minutes the TraqDash will restart and you are ready to Go Racing!


How to tell what version you have?
From TraqDash Main Menu (Traqmate on the Menu Title), click the blue 'I' Info Button in the upper left. In a few seconds a window will appear.
Scroll to the bottom of the text. Look for the DU (TraqDash) and SU (Sensor Unit) Firmware numbers.
Updating is easy and only takes a few minutes!
