Upgrade Park-N-Page Firmware

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

 

The current Park-N-Page firmware version is displayed in the upper right corner of the user interface.

 

There are two methods of accessing the firmware update files – download to your local desktop or from the Syn-Apps website. Downloading the files to your local desktop utilizes MD5 checksum to make sure the files haven't been corrupted after they've been downloaded. Updating the firmware from our website bypasses the need for the MD5 checksum, but does require Internet access for the upgrade.

 

Note: Best practices dictate downloading your Park-N-Page configuration file before updating the firmware. See Backup/Restore Configuration.
