Hello.

I am new to the forum and as the owner of this counter. I think it is a great product and I am very happy with it.
Now my firmware is 5.62. How can I update the firmware and know if there is a new version periodically?

I am also having problems with the PC software accessing and saving the GMC320 settings. It seems as if the data does not match the box where it should be (Wifi password appears in the "website" box, URL and CounterID appear with garbled data...) if I fill in the data correctly in the software and write to the GMC, this ends in error and the data is corrupted. The problem appear with GMC software and also with Geigerlog.

On the other hand, if the measurement data that is read from the meter appears correct, the fault only affects the reading and writing of the configuration. I don't know if it could be because of the old firmware.

Thanks and regards.

@ProtonJumper: I'd need more details to see if GeigerLog is at fault and what problem there is. Since, as you say, the GQ software has same/similar problems, it seems to be the counter's fault.

The counters, 300 and 500, occasionally have problems in writing their config properly. This often can be "corrected" by repeating the writing. Did the 2nd or even 3rd writing came out properly?

I have just released GeigerLog as Version 1.3.0, and I suggest you first update GeigerLog to this new version before continuing. Download this: https://sourceforge.net/projects/geigerlog/files/geigerlog-v1.3.0.zip/download

If the problem remains, then start GeigerLog with these command options to GeigerLog:
geigerlog -dvwR

This will create a file 'geigerlog.stdlog' in GeigerLog's data directory, which I will need.

Hi ProtonJumper, what version of Data Viewer are you using? It seems 5.62 is the latest for your device.
