Humminbird ONIX Software 2.300 allows Sharing with CORE Series

Postby Doug Vahrenberg » Wed May 13, 2015 6:47 pm

New Humminbird® Software Bridges the Gap Between ONIX® and Core Units
Latest version 2.300 software update allows anglers to network ONIX with core units, share waypoints and much more!


EUFAULA, AL (May 6, 2015) - In response to anglers' requests to network ONIX and 800, 900 or 1100 series units on the same boat, Humminbird engineers rolled up their sleeves and started writing code.

Now, after months of caffeine-fueled sessions in the lab and on the water, Humminbird® is proud to announce Version 2.300 Software, a free download available through each unit owner's "My Humminbird" account that seamlessly integrates 800, 900 and 1100 Series units with ONIX.

Most notably, Version 2.300 software offers significant performance upgrades and features, including the ability to share waypoint data (and Spot-Locks) in both directions between core units and ONIX.

Another breakthrough feature of Version 2.300 software is a new waypoint list view that allows easy viewing of map areas with dense waypoint clustering, which will be of particular interest to tournament anglers and guides.





Additionally, Version 2.300 software saves anglers considerable time and frustration when transferring waypoint data from non-Humminbird sources via an SD card. Version 2.300 imports and converts Raymarine, Lowrance, Garmin, and Google Earth waypoints, which can be immediately shared between ONIX and core units on the same network. No PC or laptop required.

The Software Update Process
To begin the update process, users should first verify they have registered their product and previously updated to Version 2.000 or 2.100 software via the owner's My Humminbird account.

Following product registration, users should download the software to their computer. Once successfully downloaded onto your PC, unzip the files on your computer before copying them to a blank 4 GB or greater Class 6 SD card. Do not rename files.

Once the files have been saved to the blank SD card, eject the card from your computer or external card reader and insert into your Humminbird unit. Please note that during the update process it is critical that you maintain continual power to your unit.

Once the installation is completed, power down the unit and restart. Following restart, users will note significantly improved speed and additional new features, including:
Improved cartography data load times
Faster zoom in/out on cartography
Viewable waypoint list for map areas of dense waypoint clustering
Faster network syncing for units with thousands of waypoints
Current navigation track is saved in the event of power loss
Improved waypoint accuracy on chart when waypoints are selected in sonar, Down Imaging or Side Imaging view
Direct import of competitive TWR data (HWR, USR, GDB, MPS, KML, RWF, and GPS Babel extensions)
AS RC1 Bluetooth Remote support
LakeMaster PLUS support

Doug have you had any problems after this update ? I am having problems with 2d screen going black, touch screen not responding which it would do sometimes before the update, usually after its on for an hour or so and the boat icon on the GPS map is not there. Doesn't seem to matter which beam I select the 200 or 83 or 200/83 it still goes to a black screen and then flickers on every now and then.

Did you restore defaults after the update. I recommend that and think the download instructions do too.
