How or where do I sign up to be on an email distribution/notification list that ONLY sends me a message when EMLID releases an official, final (not beta) firmware update for my Reach RS2s? (I have a pair of RS2’s.)
I don’t want to have to log in & manually search through the Community Forums to try to figure out whether a new firmware has been released since I last checked maybe months or quarters ago.
Turn off beta. Then Reachview will only prompt you for stable releases.
I don’t use my RS2’s all that often – maybe a few times a year. Mostly they are in storage, off-site, so I can’t conviently turn them on & log in with web app or ReachView to check FW status.
It would be handy to get a positive notification of official firmware releases via email, so that I know in advance of a job that I will need to set aside an extra 30 to 60 mins to do the FW updates & basic functionality testing afterward. (Before I go out for site work.)
Why do you need to load a new firmware in an occasion like that if it was working before? We have planned maintenance once a month and every gets updated then. Regardless an email is a good idea.
There is no need per-se. I just like to have a) new features and b) bugs silently fixed. (I.e. lots of bugs that I personally may not have encountered yet, but that I might encounter, avoidably, if I run older firmware when I could instead be running the latest release.)
As I said initially, I could come & scan through the forums from time to time but I’m not a super-active user at present, and it’d save time & attention bandwidth to just get a notification once or twice a year when official RS2 firmware is released.
It’s pretty common for vendors of equipment & software to have email-notification lists for this sort of thing.
OTOH I can also see how it might add administrative overhead for EMLID. At a minimum the list would probably need a management interface for users to select which firmware channel(s) to get email notices for. It would defeat the purpose if, as an RS2 owner, I also received email notices for all the other firmware that doesn’t apply to me.
Makes sense to me. We already have accounts associated with Emlid cloud services so I can’t think of a reason why it wouldn’t be doable but i’m not a software engineer.
