We are committed to the continual improvement of the LynQ product and platform. So we work hard to incorporate as much of your feedback as possible, and look forward to bringing you updates and improvements.
We have created an app we call the LynQ Updater to make sure your LynQ software is always up to date and to utilize the GPS Assist tool - which shortens the time to acquire GPS on your LynQs.
Download the updater here: www.lynqme.com/pages/updates.
System Requirements: Windows 10 or Mac OS Sierra (10.12).
To use the updater, you’ll need your LynQs, a computer that’s connected to the internet, and a USB data cable like the one provided in the box. (Please note: not all micro usb cables are data cables).
Download and launch the LynQ Updater on your Mac or PC. Plug your LynQ into your computer via the provided USB data cable and follow the instructions at www.lynqme.com/pages/updates.
Here’s what you’ll get in Version 1.4 of your LynQ’s Software update:
- Increased Standby time to almost 20 days
- New battery & charging icon
- Options for the backlight: select if your backlight stays on for 3, 5, 15, 30, or 60 seconds or to keep the backlight permanently on or off
- Adjustments to how we use your LynQ’s compass sensor to improve accuracy
Shortening the time to acquire GPS
Some of you have indicated that you are experiencing longer wait times than the expected 12 min to acquire a GPS signal. We have included a GPS Assist function with the LynQ Updater to improve your LynQs performance.
In the LynQ Updater app, click the “GPS Assist” button while your LynQ is plugged in. This will set an Enhanced GPS Acquisition Zone (EGAZ) which spans approximately 70 miles in any direction from the location you performed the GPS Assist.
Setting the EGAZ provides a quicker GPS acquisition wait time than its standard global acquisition wait times by telling your LynQ where to look in the sky for GPS satellites.
You can always reset the location of the EGAZ by connecting your LynQs to the app and clicking the GPS Assist button.
Setting and EGAZ is optional to improve your acquisition times, however, your LynQs will always acquire GPS globally completely unassisted.
