Hi everyone, hope someone can help me?

I've got a 312GW with the current R3.4 and want to update to the above. I have followed the instructions on the tutorial to update - i.e. format the disc, download the new version from the Nextbase website, then copy it across to the SD card. That all went smoothly, but when I put the SD card back into the Dash cam & turn it on the tutorial says the screen should turn blue & say that its updating, turn itself off and then back on & hey-presto its updated. When I put my SD card into the Dash cam, nothing happens other than it turning on as normal and going into camera mode???? Tried it with 2 different SD Cards, same result and I've followed the instructions to the letter?

Any ideas anyone what I'm doing wrong or is their a fault with the cam

Did the file need to be unzipped?

Presumably you did unzip the files?

Cross post. Yes it needs to be unzipped.

Didn't say anything about having to 'unzip' files in the tutorial, I wouldn't know if they did or not???

There you go. Result.:D
Ah Ha. The 512 firmware is not zipped. It's a .bin file when downloaded.
C'mon Nextbase. Where's the standardisation?:eek:
