PULSAR HELION XP50

Post by MUSKY » 11 Dec 2017, 21:24

Hi
Can someone please help me out with trying to update my hellion xp50 from its original 1.0.1 firmware version to the latest.
I have downloaded the steam vision app and connected the helion but the app says the unit has the latest software which is the 1.0.1 and I have heard that the latest version should be 2.0 or more. Am I missing something?
Thanks for any help!!!!

If you have an apple iphone then that may be the reason, I have this issue with mine but my mrs samsung works perfect at updating.

You can't seem to find any info about the updates from Pulsar anywhere.

Both mine are on 02.02.011.F

keep trying it for a few days - it worked for me eventually - not sure why but it just did (android phone ) i did wonder if they had to "allow " it for each serial no. - sounds far fetched i know but these things can send the info to pulsar as well as receive it .

Hi
Thanks for the replies.
I'm trying to do it off my Samsung s8 but it just isn't having any of it. It just keeps saying that I have the latest software, even though I don't.
I've tried uninstalling stream vision and trying again but to no avail. I've contacted the support for the app but have yet to receive a reply.
I'll keep trying!!!
Did the update show any noticeable benefits??
Cheers

Hi
Got a promt on my phone today to say that there was an update for my helion, so now got it sorted.
Haven't had a chance yet to take it out to see if there is any significant benefit from the update, so still curious to see if any of you with helions have noticed any difference in your unit?
Cheers
