  • The unit needs to be sent to TracMap for a "U-Boot" upgrade

"No Devices Found" is displayed

  • Ensure the USB key is properly attached to the USB dongle
  • If you are using a USB hub, try plugging the USB key directly in to the USB dongle
  • Try a different USB key - USB keys can differ in size, file formats, and other properties

"Can't List Files" is displayed

"No files found" is displayed

  • Ensure the upgrade file has not been placed in a Folder / Sub Directory
  • Ensure the upgrade file has the a ".tim" extension, some browsers may add an extra extension e.g. "firmware1.tim" may become "firmware1.tim.txt"
