Download new versions
« on: March 23, 2014, 08:18:35 AM »
Can I download new versions on my 899si units with them in simulator mode and with sonar turned off. I found out from HB that these newer units ending in 9 still ping the transducer when in simulator mode unless you turn sonar off, I just forgot to ask that question while I had them on the phone. Has anyone experienced this, just want to make sure I do it right

What are you trying to download?  Seems strange they would ping in Simulator mode.

I thought the same thing, until my son heard it pinging while in simulator mode, so I called HB, they verified it would, but wasn't sure why these models did, just haven't heard back from them yet. The only way to stop it is to turn sonar off. Maybe the new Firmware update will change this.

So you are trying to update the software while in Simulator mode?  If that is true than yes, the unit should update while running in the Simulator mode.
