Hi,

I am getting started with my recently purchased GMC-500+, so a newbie. The issue I have is that I cannot seem to get it to rotate to vertical. It works either way horizontal ok and will flip automatically on the auto setting.

It is on Rev 2.28, maybe it would be worth trying a firmware update? Please can someone tell me how I can upgrade the firmware as I haven’t so far been able to find out how.

Many thanks

Hi Geiger Wilts, you need to wait up to 3 seconds to get it to change the orientation. And make sure the Swivel mode in the menu is on "Auto".

Hi EmfDev,

Thanks for your reply.

I have tried with ‘Swivel Display’ set to both ‘Auto’ and ‘Vertical’, unfortunately neither work, no matter how long I wait. And I have tried holding it as vertical as possible but no joy.

Thanks

@GeigerWilts, please email me your serial number here: mark@gqelectronicsllc.com

The vertical Mode should force it to vertical mode. Are you using the "Large Font Mode"? Because other modes does not support vertical, only Large font mode.

Ahh yes many thanks, apologies for wasting your time! I somehow didn’t spot that in the instructions, even though I went through it several times. All fine now.

I email is on its way.

Many thanks
