These instructions apply to all GX Devices, such as the Color Control GX (CCGX) and Venus GX (VGX).
The change log is available in Victron Professional.
Depending on the installed firmware version, the update procedure differs.
Running firmware version v1.74 or earlier? An upgrade is needed. Follow the upgrade procedure to v2.
Otherwise follow instructions below.
There are two ways to update the firmware:
To update from the internet, navigate to: Settings→ Firmware→Online updates.
On GX devices without a display (ie. a Venus GX or Cerbo GX without GX Touch), use Remote Console to get to below menus.
Updating with a microSD-card or USB-stick is called 'Offline updating'. Use it when updating a device that is not connected to the internet.
Get the latest swu file:
Note that the same files, and the change log, is available on Victron Professional. That also features a dropbox connection, so you can always have the latest file available on your laptop.
Store the file in the root folder of a USB-stick or microSD-card.
Note that you will see a warning “Not using media for storing logs”. That warning can safely be ignored.
