    This explains why Stinger was so quick to beat the MRCT when it first appeared down here in Australia.

    Because it affected them back in their home country.

    Maybe they need some Redflex over there so they finally pull the finger out of their backside and resolve that threat...

    [doublepost=1515986441,1515982472][/doublepost]Seems they just asked for a copy of all my old logs, dashcam footage with gps time stamps as well as for us to do some fresh runs.

    Guess they maybe noticing that the competition has overtaken them and they want to beat them again?

    Fingers crossed.
    I still get very little notice on the new laser cams in use that seem to be spreading like wildfire.. They are a European made device so you would be thinking stinger would be more on top of it, especially with their new jammer product.

    f i do ask for a clean update i always get 4.0.32 proposed :
    although on the screen of the VIP desktop is stated 4.0.52
    I have laser Shield equipement : but the Analyser Firmware states N/A

    I work on mac ( which files do i need to clean up if i want this update process to work correctly )

    So the whole update process is messed up I guess:

    What do i need to do if i am forced to erase the complete OS on the vip , i would like to have the complet OS on my USB
    Can you tell me how to go about it.

    I even took an disk image of the original Stinger Usb Key and put it on another usb , same thing happens

    That is a strange video. You should see a file named VIP_4.0.52_UK.stsu or similar saved to the USB drive, which is all that is needed to upgrade. Place that USB drive in the Stinger VIP, turn the power on and it should prompt you to update.

    I would contact Stinger HQ directly via email (mail at stinger dot com) or phone (it's on their website), they'll be able to provide the best support.

    Just extract this file to your usb stick, and you're set.

    Thank you i found the stsu file , it is on my mac stored under library/stinger/updates
    so that is ok , but it does not explain why the stinger desktop is proposing an old update.
    I had a conversation with Stinger yesterday and he connected via Teamviewer so he could see at first hand what happens.
    If i understand well : Put A empty USB stick in the VIP , start the stinger, then go to the stinger desktop would solve it ( i can not test it because my components will be installed end of may in BREDA autoshop)
    A picture of the HD antenna and the 4 lasers are missing.

    thanks

    I contacted Laser HQ yesterday and he witnessed via TeamViewer the process of the Stinger Desktop
    and was a bit surprised . But putting an empty usb stick in the vip , starting stinger vip would initialise the usb to be recocgized as a stinger usb drive by the stinger desktop.

    Pushing the red button and erasing the stinger would write something similar on the usb stick, so things might come out ok at the end.

    It is screen capture of my mac screen with capto of the Stinger Desktop at work and proposing me to load an old 4.0.32 although it says 4.0.52 is available, should be solved said the stinger technician , when inserting a virgin usb and then putting it to the stinger Desktop , he will then complete os , because i have laser shield analyser too.

    So thank you for your remark

    Again thanks for the support of the forum i see it is living



    My Stinger is not installed for the moment and i can not test this now, but all those mysteries will be solved at the end of the month by the dealership in breda

    Goedemorgen,


    Als ik u vraag goed begrijp wilt u voor de garantie de serienummers van de componenten die gemonteerd gaan worden.

    Die kunnen we u uiteraard geven bij inbouw. Echter garantie loopt via ons als het apparaat hier aangeschaft is.

    Dan is een aankoopnota van ons voldoende voor garantie. Hier hoeven geen serienummers op vermeld te worden.



    Met vriendelijke groet, William van den Broek
