Do I have to buy a Microchip programme to update WFS210 FW?


#1

Hello,

I bought a WSF210 a while ago and used it fine with an android device. Now I have an iPad but this requires FW upgrade. It sems this upgrade requires a programmer which I does not have. And its price is relatively high compared to the price of the WFS.

Is there any alternative ? cheaper programmer (like the one I use for my arduinos) for instance ?

Thanks.

Hello,

Any suggestion on this ? Do I really need to buy this programmer ?

Thanks.

Hi,

First Option:
You can try going to your local velleman dealer and check if they want to do the upgrade for you.
Second Option:
You can send the wfs210 us (shipping is on you).
We will upgrade the firmware for free and send it back for free.

Hello @vel337,

Sorry for the late reply… I have to check why I did not receive any notification…

Anyway, I’ll try to go where I bought it to see if they can do the upgrade. I guess the cost of sending it over would also be kind of expensive. But where would I need to send it to ? Somewhere in France ? Europe ?

Thank you for your suggestions

Hello @VEL337,

Last question, would I need to fill in a RMA before sending it back ?

Thanks.

@jsroques sorry for the late answer
You don’t need to fill in a RMA.
Just send it to the address and it will be handled properly
