Instructions for Updating Survey3 Camera Firmware:

  1. Download the firmware file by clicking a link below and copying the .bin file onto an empty SD card.
  2. Make sure the camera's battery is charged a minimum 50% and the camera is powered off. Do not rely on USB power during firmware updates. 
  3. Insert the card into the camera and press either the front or top button to begin the update. The camera's LEDs will flash and the beep will sound during the update.
  4. Once the camera fully boots up the new firmware will be installed. You can confirm by checking the firmware version in the camera settings, using the rear LCD navigation.

*If camera is not detecting firmware file, format the card from the settings option on the camera.
