GoPro Karma: System Update 2.50.01
After the last update released on September 26, 2018, GoPro has been forced to launch a new system update to end a serious problem completely unexpectedly. The manufacturer is against the ropes because hundreds of users are unable to start your drone, and after many days of waiting, it seems that the brand already has the solution.
That is at least what we have seen in the support forums of the brand, where the brand has already posted the notice of availability of the latest version of the system. It’s about the version 2.50.01, a park that arrives, as well as notes the release notes, to correct a problem of synchronization with the World Magnetic Model, or what is the same, the scale representation of the earth’s magnetic field that allows GPS systems to be maintained at bay. With this new version of the system, the connectivity issues They seem to disappear, however, not everyone seems happy.
Not all are joys
However, as we can read in the forums of the brand, many users ensure that the connection between the controller and the drone still does not occur, so in addition to GPS, there seems to be some kind of communication problem between the remote control. Control and the aircraft. There are users who seem to have solved the problem and are already flying through the air, while others are still unable to turn their Karma’s propellers.
The manufacturer has not yet made any statement in this regard, and has merely updated the web updates to notify the new version. We imagine that when the deployment has been carried out in full (in GoPro United Kingdom the new version still does not appear) the manufacturer will announce it officially and begin to address the possible problems that appear.
How to upgrade your Karma drone
To update the Karma we must perform the installation from the remote control. This screen control must have at least 12% battery remaining, or else the system will not allow us to proceed with the process. With the remote connected to a wireless network with an internet connection, the system should detect the update immediately. Otherwise, you can always access the Software section in the About menu and review the possible versions available.
Remember that your camera must also be updated to the latest version, so first update the firmware of the camera before installing the desired update to Karma.
