Software updates

It is recommended to always run the latest UGPS G2 software where possible. The latest software can be obtained automatically or manually.

Automatic software update

The G2's GUI automatically checks and indicates if a new software version is available.

  • Connect the G2 topside unit over ethernet or wifi to a network connected to the internet. If on a personal computer, it may be necessary to make a network bridge between a network interface which has access to the internet and the interface through which the G2 topside is connected.
  • Go to http://[IP_ADDRESS_OF_THE_G2_TOPSIDE]:9000 in a web browser.
  • The GUI will automatically check if there is a new version available, and if so, initiate installation of it with a single click.

Offline software update

If it is not possible to connect the G2 topside to the internet, one can proceed as follows.

  • Find the current version and chip ID of the G2 topside unit at Menu -> About in the GUI.
  • Manually download an update package (.wlup) from the update server using the chip ID.
  • Verify if the downloaded version is newer than the currently running version.
  • Navigate to http://[IP_ADDRESS_OF_THE_G2_TOPSIDE]:9000 in a web browser.
  • Select 'Manual upload' and then upload the downloaded .wlup file.
