AudioMoth Configuration App 1.2.2 & Firmware 1.2.1

4 comments

Edited: Mar 26

 

A new version of the configuration app is now available. It includes several bugfixes and small features additions.

 

Make sure you're using the latest version before making a post in the support forum, as the issue you're having may have been fixed in a subsequent update.

Update notes

 

In order to use the new features added in the new Configuration App, you'll need to update your AudioMoth firmware to the latest version (1.2.1).

What is the nature of this bug fix "Fixed time period bug when configuring in non-UTC timezones" - that is, what is it fixing? If I'm outside of UTC, is this an important update?

Before transmitting the configuration to an AudioMoth, all times are converted from local time to UTC. A bug existed where, if a time period loops around midnight, a conversion error would occur and that period would not record.

 

This can be avoided in the old version by entering your time periods and then switching back to UTC before clicking configure. The conversion will happen correctly and the AudioMoth will perform as expected.

 

I would recommend keeping your configuration app on the latest version if possible.

Peter,

 

First, thanks to you and the team for developing this wonderful device, which as so many potential applications.

 

While attempting to update to firmware version 1.2.2 I have run into a problem with the "flash" utility which reports "No serial ports found".

 

What seems bizarre is that I've had this outcome on 3 computers; two ruining windows 10, and one running Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit!

 

In each case the configuration app is able to communicate with the AudioMoth over the USB cable.

 

On the Linux machine I get the same outcome with "./flash" or "sudo ./flash" so it's unlikely to be a permissions problem.

 

If it helps diagnose this problem the following is the results from "lsusb" :>

and from "dmesg" after connecting and then disconnecting the AudioMoth:>

Clearly I am doing something wrong but would appreciate suggestions on how I can resolve this.

 

Many thanks

Problem Solved

 

On re-reading the instructions I realised the AudioMoth had to be in Program mode (Step 6 in the instructions) in order to appear as a new port.

 

Thereafter all went OK.

 

Many thanks.
