Upgrading Firmware

Firmware update sub-menu

Select Firmware Update from the Tools menu. Note that while the menu says that Ctrl+U is the shortcut, it is not! Ctrl+U will open the legacy firmware update tool. Be careful and use your mouse.

Firmware update tool window

Press the button with three dots '...' and locate the firmware image you just downloaded. When you’re ready, press the green dot button labeled ‘GO’ in the lower left corner.

Loading new firmware

Sit back and wait. This upgrade took about 60s but your mileage may vary.

Firmware update success

Upon completion, you should see the ‘Firmware Update Success’ message. The GNSS receiver will reset and re-enumerate over USB (if it has USB built-in). On the ZED-F9P all device settings and configurations were overwritten so if you previously saved your device’s configuration now is a good time to reload them.
