Important: New Firmware for your Anabat Scout Bat Detector

A new version of the firmware is available for your Anabat Scout; Version 1.0. This is an important update and you should apply this to all your detectors as soon as possible.

The update introduces the following changes:

  • Fixed volume adjustments not working sometimes.
  • Added trigger min event to settings window.
  • Memo max file time is now set to 10 minutes (was 10 seconds).
  • Added warning message when clock battery gets low.
  • Disable audio output when recording a memo.
  • Fixed log files sometimes being created in the root directory of the SD card.

Firmware is the software that runs on your detector and Titley Scientific is continually improving this software to add features and address performance issues. It is vital that you install new updates as soon as they become available to ensure your detector runs smoothly.

Here's how to perform the update:

Step 1 - Your Anabat Scout is easily updated using an SD card. Simply download the update file using this link and copy it to the root directy on an SD card. Make sure the file is named scout.adx. You can use the same SD card to update multiple Scouts.

Step 2 - Insert the SD card and fresh batteries into your Scout then power it on. After a short time a message will appear: "Firmware update 1.0 available. Would you like to update now?". Press the "Yes" key (right hand soft key) to start the update. Do not remove the batteries or power off the detector while the update is being installed. Two squares will scroll across the display while the update is being installed and then the detector will restart. The update is now complete, happy batting!
