  1. I connected to the R2 wifi hotspot and downloaded the upgrade file. I navigated to the 192.168.142.1/ page and logged in but I do not see a firmware tab. All I see are the R2 status and information tabs and dropdown menus. What am I missing.

    • Hi Chris,

      When you connect to the receiver via Wi-Fi and then login you should see on the left hand side a list of different options you can navigate in the WebUI. Firmware is the second to last at the bottom. Trimble recommends using Chrome with all their products.

      Thanks,

      Joe
