down/up loading clone file into machine with G11 takes lot of time

What is a normal time to upload software or clonefile into a machine with Iqan Go and a G11.

A clone file of 40Mb consists of MD4-7 and Asian languages takes more than 4 hours.

What is your experience? I can send the clone file to you for investigation.

An impoftant factor for the MD4 update is how much of the firmware and other resource files that needs to be updated. 

If the language font has been changed, a file with all fonts is sent again. 

If an image has been changed, a file with all images is sent again. 

If the project include PDFs, a file with all PDFs is sent.

If the IQAN software version has been changed, new files are sent depending on what needs to be updated. 

The size of the update varies between versions, but it is always several MB. 

As an example, updating an MD4 between 6.07 and 6.08 is 10-11 MB, and takes about 60-70 minutes over a G11. 

With the new G12 that we'll start selling later this year, the same update is done in less than 15 minutes. 

Gustav, Thanks, for the answer.

Kind regards, Laura

How long does the same update of an MD4 from 6.07 to 6.08 take via Wifi/4G with the PVSG?

As I understand it only connects to the MD4 via CAN, will it be possible to connect an ethernet cable in the future?

Hello, we have had good luck with portable wifi routers with USB battery packs.

Not all Wifi routers will work. It MUST feature a 'WISP' mode.

The MD4 is the 'internet' and the router must pass that along to your computer as the 'client'.
