How to update MK2 Firmware
Save your configuration
WARNING: Updating firmware will reset the default config on a major and minor release. Bugfix releases do not reset configuration. Version scheme: MAJOR.MINOR.BUGFIX
If in doubt, be sure to save your configuration using the RaceCapture app.
Connect RaceCapture/Pro MK2 to your computer and connect to it with the app.
- Press the 'Configuration' button to navigate to the configuration section.
- On the left menu, select Firmware
- On the firmware screen, press the button "Update Firmware"
- Navigate to the firmware file ending in ".ihex"
- Select this file. The firmware will update and show a percentage progress indicator.
- If there is a problem detecting RaceCapture/Pro, unplug/replug and restart the app.
- While holding down the button on RaceCapture/Pro, power it up by plugging in to USB.
- You should observe a rapidly flashing red LED on the unit: it is in bootloader mode.
- Start the app. Note, it will not be able to connect - this is expected.
- Navigate to the configuration/firmware update screen, select the firmware file and update the firmware.

Version 2 Beta firmware and app
Advanced users are encouraged to try the V2 beta software. Download the firmware and new app below. Official support for V2 firmware and app coming soon for MK1 users!
The 2.7.6 firmware for MK1 is considered 'stable beta' - We feel it's much better quality than the previous 1.2.x firmware and RaceAnalyzer combination, but since it is the first V2 firmware and app release for MK1, we are officially calling it Beta.
Currently supported platforms:
- Windows: currently supported
- Linux: currently supported (run from source code; installer coming soon)
- OS X: experimental support - USB interface fails to communicate (possible driver issue)
- Android: port scheduled
- iOS: port scheduled
Follow the directions in the README for setting up dependencies, then run the app from source.
