PM5 firmware, September 2020

Post by CJOttawa » October 2nd, 2020, 8:43 am ... e/timeline

I hadn't seen this mentioned here but feel free to delete if this is a duplicate.

I updated last night and my PM5 (hardware version 633, manufactured in August of 2018) seemed to be more responsive - there's zero delay now between button press and action. In past, there was a slight lag.

Anyone else update and notice this?

It looks like they're going to release a new hardware version (V900).

If you run ErgData it pops up with a message when you open it that a new Firmware version is available which is cool.

Currently on V168 but I think I will hold off from updating to 169 for a few months as my current setup is about as complex as it can get and there are no problems at all with it currently.

Its always hard to resist moving to the latest version but it mainly looks to be Bluetooth stuff. ... #rowerg-v2
