StarFire™ Receiver 20-2 Mandatory Update
The StarFire™ 20-2 software update, unlike many others, is a “Mandatory Update” for both StarFire 6000 and StarFire 3000 receivers and includes software fixes plus a few new features. The most important part of the 20-2 software update is that it positions the current StarFire 6000 and StarFire 3000 receivers to continue operating into the future. Changes coming with the 20-2 software update also prepare the StarFire network to support new satellite constellations and the next generation StarFire receiver.
February 1, 2021, is the deadline to have all StarFire 6000 and StarFire 3000 receivers updated to version 20-2 software. Receivers not updated by this time will not receive the StarFire signal and will only operate in WASS until updated to 20-2. Without the update, guidance applications like AutoTrac™ will be disabled.
To update receivers, Western Equipment is offering the following options:
As a reminder – all StarFire iTC receivers using a Starfire correction signal will no longer function beginning February 1, 2021. There is no software update available for iTC users. Further, once the Western Equipment RTK network base stations are updated to 20-2, StarFire iTC receivers accessing the network will no longer function on RTK.
