Simply download our latest version of DakView3 to your desktop, download the firmware file on this page to your desktop, install the PC software on your computer, and follow the instructions on ‘how to flash’, both located in the ‘Help’ menu item in our DakView3 software. Certainly feel free to contact Dakota with any questions you may have regarding the upgrade process.
Important Note: Please Read Carefully
|There are now two versions of firmware available for download. The MINIfirmUpgrade.zip version is for users with versions prior to release 1.2. This is the original 4 foot maximum bolt length version of firmware and original EPLD. This is the only version that will work with versions prior to 1.2. Do not attempt to flash the MiniMax with version 2.1, it won’t work! The newer release 2.1 extends the maximum bolt length to 8 feet. Users with version 2.0 and higher can take advantage of this upgrade only.We can upgrade your older version gauges for the 8 feet bolt length. However, this will require that your gauge is sent to Dakota. It cannot be done in the field. The user will be responsible to pay a set ugrade fee and all shipping costs associated with the transportation. Please contact Dakota for additional information.||MiniMax Upgrade
