Hi Luís,

I tried to update the NMEA2WIFI multiplexer to the latest version 6.2 y 6.3 but after the flash of the firmware, the multiplexer didn't start. I tried several times without success, so I had to revert to version 5.8 that has worked.


When I restart it, the blue light does not stop flashing and the Wi-Fi network does not appear, if I go back to version 5.8 everything works.

The USB Cable is correct and the port reconnects it perfectly

Thank you

Hello Juanvi,

Please check this forum again. I have revised this topic. Please try to flash the OTA_BLINK.bin file as described.

Regards, Luis

Hello,

Thank you for the feedback. I don't understand why it didn't work in the normal way but at least we found a way to update shall it be necessary.

Hi, I have been using nmea2wifi with Digital Yacht AIT250 and it’s been great! I have never upgraded the firmware from the version 5.6.
Now I am ready to upgrade it but I am struggling to find an instruction how to do it… I would like to start with the major upgrade from 2019 to obtain possibility to use wifi for further upgrades. Please look at the screenshot attached- there is no button “Upgrade” on the browser webpage…. What device (Windows-iOS-Android) do I need to use? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Waldemar,

You need to follow the steps in the beginning of this post. Once you get a newer version supporting OTA changing from one version to another is very easy. Unfortunately at the time of 5.6 the update was not so simple.

If you know how to use Arduino to flash an ESP8266 module, there is an alternative. Otherwise you need to follow the steps in this post.

Regards, Luis
