Once you're in it the upgrade interface gives you some options to upgrade all Tritons at once, or selectively pick what you want. I'd just try them all for starters. For most people this has worked fine.
Good luck. John.
Thanks for the help, John. I appreciate it very much.
The B&G U.S. website is not clear, at all, about the Triton or the Pilot being updated via a Zeus Touch MFD. I have Zeus Touch 7s and the installation
instructions, not the operation manual, imply, in one sentence, that other devices on a N2K network can have software
updated through a Zeus Touch.
On the Triton and Pilot software update pages, B&G indicates a completely different process, with no mention of using a Zeus Touch. It seems those particular instructions are directed at dealers, with special interface tools.
And when we get to the software update for my 4G radar
, there is an update, but absolutely no instructions as how to install it (It concerns GoFree WiFi
compatibility). Am I to assume (!) that it is done through the Zeus Touch MFD also? The radar
is connected to the N2K network via a Simnet cable, along with the primary ethernet network connections, so it should see and be seen by the MFDs on both networks.
I must say that the documentation
produced by B&G is sorely lacking, particularly considering that not all purchasers of their stuff spend hours of time on various forums
, etc., trying to figure out how to dial in their products.
It guess it doesn't help that I am a longtime Mac user and needed to procure a PC (yikes!) for doing this stuff (and to deal with the Maretron and Vesper equipment
, I discovered the process to properly load the unzipped updates on a micro sd card via the PC, so I think I have a handle on it.
