SonarHub Software Update


There has been a recent software release for our high performance sonar modules S5100, Sonar Hub and Structure Scan 3D. This release offers some exciting new features.

1. Providing an enhanced A Scope presentation in conjunction with the connected MFD. The enhanced A Scope presentation will help the user better distinguish return echoes between targets and noise. There are 3 settings for the enhanced A Scope, Regular, Enhanced or Horizontal as shown below.

2. Providing Structure Scan inprovements in conjunction with the connected MFD, including Vapour trails and Depth Highlight. In the below image, A is the highlighted depth range, B is the low limit, and C is the high limit.

3. Provide compatibility across the network with connected MFD’s

To upgrade the software:

2. Insert the micro SD card into the card slot on the MFD and from the home screen select Files.
3. Choose the upgrade file from the micro SD card and select Upgrade.
4. Make sure that the relevant item is shown and check the tick box, then select “Start upgrade”.
5. Allow the upgrade to process until the message “Rebooting Module” is displayed. Please note that it can take about 3 minutes to reboot the module after the upgrade. During this time you will see “No Source” displayed on the Sonar screen, so do not power down until the unit has re-booted and you have a valid source available for the Fish Finder.
6. Please note that the instructions shown are for Structure Scan 3D, however the S5100 and Sonar Hub are upgraded in the same fashion by selecting their relevant .riw software files.

There has been a recent software release for our high performance sonar modules S5100, Sonar Hub and Structure Scan 3D. This release changes the software naming convention by combining the year and sequential release number for the year. This provides standardization across the Navico products. In this version, 18.2 means that it is the second release for 2018. This release is also to align compatibility with our MFD’s to these sonar modules and should be applied if you are updating your MFD, or S2000 Fishfinder.
