If you haven't already found out on using V5.0, I have been having a fair few dropouts when switching back and forth with the Mi-6 wireless pinpointer and the Deus. Didn't have too many issues on the second outing, though all the same I still have a couple of dropouts during the day. The latest update has specifically been released to deal with these issues, so hopefully smooth sailing from here on in.

Here is the note added to the update page:

NOTE : 02/08/2018 –  The version 5.1 improve the connectivity between DEUS and the MI-6 Pinpointer as well as the connection speed.

Will try an update to 5.1 tonight, as 5.0 is near unusable with my Mi-6 in wireless mode - all sorts of communication issues going on during my most recent outing.

Interestingly when I upgraded to 5.1 it asked to make sure that my 9" and my 13" black coils were connected so they could be updated, but it didn't want to know about the HF coil, so I can only assume that the HF coils are already 5.1 compliant.

Yes, I find that a bit strange considering the HF coil is the one the Mi-6 has the most issues with.

I just downloaded it. But XP website says V5 update. Is this the right one? What if I have another HF coil. Does it updates all ok?
I don`t think there are way to check coil FW version????

I am currently V4.1 yes after connecting and disconnecting to MI-6 Coil fails to reconnect sometimes or takes long time to reconnect... You would not know this is you have set Iron volume ZERO.just detecting without any target for a long time!

So V5.1 is better than V4.1 with pinpointer?

V5 from XP also contains V5.1. Mine updated just fine and it didn't want to know about the HF coils, only the black coils. V5.1 is really only of benefit to you if you also have the MI6 PP

Capa, if you are having connectivity issues with the Mi-6 on V4.1, then yes, upgrade to V5.0 (which is actually the newer 5.1).
