CDR 825E FIRMWARE UPDATE
This Update Includes:
- G-Sensor Sensitivity Adjustment – In previous firmware versions the G-Sensor settings are too sensitive for many cars. This resulted in too many files being protected, which caused Memory Full messages and potential lockup issues. This update adjusts G-Sensor sensitivity to proper levels.
- Miscellaneous updates and bug fixes
