Information on past firmware updates.

Please note: For up to date firmware you only need to install the most recent firmware update. 

SpeedCoach Firmware Update (Version 2.13) - 02.17.17


PLEASE NOTE: There is a known bug when updating to firmware version 2.13. - In SUP and OC units, the heart rate pairing menu is may become disabled, with no work-around. After updating to version 2.13, heart rate sensors may no longer be able to be paired. - In GPS units, the heart rate pairing menu can become disabled. As a work-around, go to the oarlock pairing menu item and select GO (even if not in range of an oarlock). This will enable the pairing menu item on the heart rate menu. We are working on a fix to this bug. Please check back soon for updated firmware. If you have experienced this issue, please contact techsupport@nkhome.com and they can send you a file to revert back to the older firmware for the time being.
