The versatile Walkabout is shortly due its first major firmware update.
Walkabout 2.0 offers an improved user experience, including a new Basic View option and lockable Profiles.
The Anabat Walkabout was Titley ’s first Full Spectrum hand-held detector, Based on an Android platform, this all-in-one handheld detector offers a range of special features such as a touch-screen, integrated GPS and sophisticated viewing options.
The Walkabout has been around for a couple of years now, and Titley has listened to feedback to bring some very useful improvements into version 2.0.
Easier to use
- Commonly used controls are now easily accessible.
- You can now quickly switch between viewing saved sonograms, maps, or a live spectrogram display.
- A new Basic View option means you can switch off the sonograms and only see the bare essentials on screen.
Improved user experience
- The touchscreen user interface is smoother and more responsive.
- You can now tag your recordings with species labels in the field, saving you time with subsequent analysis
- Voice memos can be saved with a single press of a button.
- You can now create and save unique profiles.
- Profiles can be locked, and loaded onto multiple detectors.
- This makes the Walkabout much easier to use in situations the detector is loaned out or used by less experienced operators – ideal for seasonal field staff, for example.
How do I get the update?
The new firmware will be released via an online update in April 2018, so connect your Walkabout to WiFi and check for the latest updates.
