Select the GPS footpod.

We’ll update the GPS pod first. If there’s an update available you should see a blue label stating ‘Update available’. Tap on the GPS footpod icon.

In the next screen, tap ‘Software version‘.

Select the GPS footpod.

05

Update the firmware.

Tapping ‘Update software‘ will start the firmware update. Wait until this process is completely finished. In case you encounter an error during this process, simply tap OK and restart the firmware update. This might take a few tries.

Important: Do not remove the footpods from the charger or the charger from the power. For the best chances of a successful firmware update, don’t lock the phone and keep the phone screen turned on.

(Optional): Update the non-GPS pod

In case you have received a Pro pack, don’t forget to also update the firmware of the other (non-GPS) footpod. For this simply repeat steps 4 – 6 for the other pod.
