Hello from Ukraine,

As of Sept 24 the following Leica receivers will be inoperational: GX12xx, ATX1230, ATX900 and GRX1200 receivers with measurement engine generation 2 (ME2)


I was wondering if it is still possible to get f/w updates from NovAtel?

Welcome, friend.

I am sorry.  I just noticed.  You’ve been here 11 years.  I hope you are well.

I have nothing productive or helpful for your question.

Hey Yuriy,

Where did you hear about the EOL for the 1200's.  I do not see anything related to it on MyWorld.  I guess I should fire up my remaining 1230GX to see if it is using ME3

I was told the same by Leica representative, ME2 devices are about to stop working. Leica uses own FW. Maybe it is even possible to force load Novatel FW but in general, during loading process there is auth code needed and Novatel is not providing it to boards used in Leica receivers. If these receivers will be inoperable in some way, unfortunately equipment upgrade will be needed. Similar situation was long ago with Leica SR530 devices but users' rage somehow managed to force Leica Geosystems to release FW update that resurrected these recivers. I don't believe it's going to happen nowadays.
