¿Necesitas ayuda?

At the end of the update of my leGPSBip (version 1), it says "ok, next step" and then "calibration failed". What should I do ?

It means you have to proceed to the sensors calibration in order to get the Instant Vario.

Please, follow the procedure described here.

leGPSBip+ is not concerned, as its sensors are factory calibrated, and the Instant Vario is activated by default.

¿Cómo actualizar el pack de idiomas?

  1. Descarga el archivo
  2. Conecta tu GPSBip+ por USB (ver la sección del manual de uso que trata de la «transferencia de archivos y carga del instrumento»)
  3. En la carpeta «voices», reemplaza el archivo antiguo por el nuevo
  4. Deja conectado el GPSBip+ hasta que deje de parpadear y luego haz clic en Expulsar
  5. Desconecta tu GPSBip+ y luego enciéndelo

There should always be at least one voice pack in the “voices” folder.

  1. Apaga tu GPSBip+
  2. Conéctalo por USB a tu ordenador
  3. Abre el Configurator del GPSBip+
