Firmware V1.5.6

With the new Update, your Pitufino is able to let you add alarms in the anchor watch and multi-instrument window. This lets you for example set an alarm for depth or windspeed to your anchor-watch.

Furhtermore, it is now possible to select zip-files at the firmware-update, which makes updating via mobile devices a lot easier.

Firmware updates are regularly offered for even more features and wider support. No need to hesitate–updating is as simple as it gets! Just download the firmware-zip-file at and store it on your device. Afterwards connect to your Pitufino and enter the Webinterface. Go to the menu and click on the Firmware Update Icon.

In the Firmware Update Center you will be able the search for your previously downloaded firmware-files. Select the whole unpacked folder and click enter. Now you can click on the update button right underneath. This process can take a few minutes. After updating the interface will tell you to wait until your pitufino is rebooted.

Now your Pitufino is fully up to date!
