Need help ?

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.

How to update the voice pack ?

  1. Download the voice pack file
  2. Connect your leGPSBip+ as a disk (see section “file transfer and charge” on the manual) to your computer.
  3. Replace the old file by the new downloded one inside the folder named “voices”
  4. Keep your leGPSBip+ connected until it stops blinking, and then click on Eject disk
  5. Disconnect leGPSBip+ and turn it ON

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

What is my current firmware or voice pack version number ?

  1. Switch off your leGPSBip+
  2. Connect it to your computer
  3. Open leConfigurator
  4. Click on “load config”, and follow the instructions
  5. The version number will be available under System > more (see screenshot below)


Advanced recovery procedure

In case of difficulty, you can enter in recovery mode with the following procedure:

  1. Connect your leGPSBip via USB to your computer
  2. Hold the button pressed for 30s
  3. Download this file
  4. Place the file at the root of the disk
  5. Keep your leGPSBip connected until it stops blinking, and then click on Eject disk
  6. Still USB connected, switch your leGPSBip on, and wait for the steady green LED for 5sec then the ascending start-up tone.
  7.  You can now install the latest update
