DCS v6.00 Enhancement/Fix List
April 17, 2017 - The latest version (6.00) of the software used in the DCS system includes several new features detailed below.
Note: Because the memory assignments are dramatically different in software Versions 3.X and earlier, upgrading the code is required in both the remote and the TIU. The system will not function correctly if only one of the two components has been updated. In addition, if the remote and the TIU are currently running any version of 2.X DCS software, both must be reset using the appropriate System menu commands prior to uploading the Version 4.01 software into the remote and the TIU. By resetting both components, all previous information and settings (engines, accessories, switches, etc.) entered into the remote and TIU will be lost and must be reentered by the user after the software update has been completed. Users upgrading from 3.X and higher will not have to reset the remote and TIU prior to uploading the new 4.00 software.
There are two software files attached to the download. Both feature the same numeric code and should be used together (the appropriate file for the remote and TIU) when migrating from Version 3.X or earlier.
***NOTE: The user MUST use the most recent DCS Loader Program, Version 5.00 (or greater) to upload DCS Version 6.00 into the TIU and Remote. Earlier versions of the DCS Loader Program prior to version 5.00 will not work. ***
