UPDATING THE EASY UPDATER FOR GC2
The Easy Updater for GC2,TS1, and GC2E ships with the firmware u
pdate for
the Control Panel and Touchscreen already installed. When newer
firmware
updates are released,the new firmware package can be easily load
ed into the device.
NOTE:
Before changing the fi rmware update on the device for the first
Ɵme,
always install the UPDV Device Drivers. To obtain the drivers a
nd instrucƟons,
visit the Firmware Update Tool page at: dealer.2gig.com. A Micr
osoŌ Windows
based PC is used to perform the firmware update of the 2GIG-UPDV
. The PC
must use Windows 7 or Windows 8, and all windows updates must b
e current.
Preparing to Update the Device: PC Preparation
To load newer firmware onto the device, go to the 2GIG Dealer Si
te at:
dealer.2gig.com and download the UPDV Update Tool Kit. This kit
includes a
firmware update for the device, as well as the latest firmware re
lease for the GC2
Panel and Wireless Touchscreen Keypad.

on
Next, connect the Easy Updater for GC2 to the computer using a
micro-USB
cable, (not supplied) then run the update package to automa
cally load the
newer

rmware onto the device. If a screen is displayed like
Figure 3
, the micro-
USB cable being used may be a "Charge Only" type of cable. A ca
ble that supplies
power and transfers data is required.
