Can you perhaps make this a "Sticky" so all users can be aware if they are running the latest firmware?
Perhaps you can also link the firmware revisions here as well so users can update their devices?
Thanks, Bob

I concur. That would be MOST useful. As far as I can tell, there is no way to find out what the current version of firmware is for a given device other than the prevail upon EMFDev to check for us. A simple list with links would make life easier for us and EMFDev.

The firmware revision is tied to the device's serial number and if wrong firmware update is downloaded, the device may brick.

A sticky post with a list that contains the most recent version numbers and which then gets regularly updated when there's a new revision for any device, would still help a lot, even if the user needs to request the firmware file individually. :)

Agree! This way at least we will know when to submit a request for our firmware update.

Fully agree with your request. Please GQ, at least add a sticky note for the latest firmware, and it is up to us to request the FW updates based on our current Firmware

I was sent an E-mail today from GQ with the latest firmware update for my 600+ revision 2.45 which I updated today. Previous on my machine was 2.42.
I also requested a Firmware change log if available from at least 2.42 to the current revision, this too should be included in the "sticky".

I have update my GMC 600+ to this latest version, namely 2.46, and from the short time I have had to test it, the only visible thing jumped to my eyes are the several calibration factors introduced. Previously they were 2, and now if I am not mistaken they are 4 or 5

Wow you're right I just checked it's actually 6 points. Which raises the question does this negate the original factory calibration which was based on less calibration points?
How do we use these 6 calibration points to calibrate the 600+?
There should be instructions in the manual for a "basic" calibration using these.

Previously you had 3 "calibration" points, which all coded a single(!) value. Now you have 6 "calibration" points which still all code a single value.

And a single value is all that is needed.

But you can do me a favor and download the config memory with GeigerLog 1.5 and post it on Sourceforge.

Thanks ihab17! I'll send an E-mail request for the update.
Have you noticed any improvements in performance or know of what was changed/improved?
Thanks again, Bob

Improvements of some crashes and few display bugs YES, improvements in the algorithm and accuracy, not much. Unfortunately QG does not release any change log, so you have to ask them and take their words for granted on what they have changed.

GQ Rev versions don't follow 'semver' semantics...

Seems like there is a deeper issue with rev versions... A serial number wasn't enough... 'DSID' was added... https://www.gqelectronicsllc.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10394

Wishful thinking: I'd like to have a communication protocol specification mapping to firmware.

Just emailed them for the latest version for my 320 Plus v4
Got a reply that I'm already running the latest which apparently is 4.27
Just a waste of their time.
They should indeed make a sticky here that let's you check the latest version for your model.
