MyLaps Decoder RC4.5

BRCA Articles

 As you may or may not have heard by now, there is a new version of the MyLaps firmware available as an upgrade for the RC4 decoder.  The latest update is aimed at drone racing and introduces compatibility with their new transponder, the DR5.  More information on the Drone Capability for the RC4 decoder can be found here.  Unfortunately, updating to this version of the firmware renders the original personal (RC2) and rechargeable transponders inoperable with the system.

I have spoken with MyLaps who have confirmed that the firmaware cannot be rolled back to the current version (v4.4) once upgraded and new decoders will only be issued with version 4.5 installed.  It has also been confirmed that there will be a limited time trade in offer available for the origanal personal transponders allowing them to be upgraded to a compatible transponder at a reduced price, please contact bbk Software (click here) to take advantage of the RC2 transponder upgrade.  If any further clarification is required, please raise a 'General Enquiry' ticket via the contact list with RC4.5 in the subject.
