Readers change their settings and software based off the Walker that they are connected to. This means that Readers will update or downgrade to match the Walker that they are connected to.
When the Reader pairs with a Walker, it will ask what version of Reader software the Walker is expecting, and then automatically start upgrading or downgrading itself accordingly.
After Software Version 8.5.0 Walker devices will remain updated automatically and will automatically update connected Readers.
If a device update is available, it will downloaded in the background while the Walker is online. The update will be installed during the next Walker shutdown to prevent any interruption during usage.
If the update includes changes to the Reader software, the Reader update will be applied next time the reader is paired.
During an update the Reader screen will display the message "Updating..." with a progress bar. When the bar is filled, the Reader will reboot into its new software version and it will reconnect to the Walker. Reader updates take approximately 40 seconds.
