After installing the app, please do a firmware update immediately by following the instructions below.
In PyLife, go to the ‘Devices’ tab and select your PyGo:
Scroll down to the bottom and select ‘UPDATE FIRMWARE’
If an update is available, click install
You will be prompted to join a new WiFi access point. Please click join. You will temporarily be disconnected from the internet, so if you have any active connections they will be terminated.
After a few moments the firmware update should complete, and your PyGo will automatically reboot. Once it has reconnected, you are ready to go.
If the firmware update fails, you can reconnect to the PyGo and try again. It will prompt you to resume the update, and should subsequently update successfully. This should fix the majority of firmware update issues. A video demonstrating this is available here
If your PyGo stops responding in PyLife, and doesn’t display a charging symbol when placed on a suitable charger, it may have entered an error state. We have discovered a bug in the firmware the PyGos are shipped with where in unusual circumstances involving the GPS the PyGo can enter this state where it does not respond to external input. The immediate firmware update resolves this issue, but if you do encounter please do the following:
For most people, firmware update through the app is the best option. However it is possible to update through a computer if you have the USB cradle or can connect to the PyGo’s serial port through a computer. If you want to do this, do the following:
