New Humminbird® Software Bridges the Gap Between ONIX® and Core Units
Latest version 2.300 software update allows anglers to network ONIX with core units, share waypoints and much more!


EUFAULA, AL (May 6, 2015) - In response to anglers' requests to network ONIX and 800, 900 or 1100 series units on the same boat, Humminbird engineers rolled up their sleeves and started writing code.

Now, after months of caffeine-fueled sessions in the lab and on the water, Humminbird® is proud to announce Version 2.300 Software, a free download available through each unit owner's "My Humminbird" account that seamlessly integrates 800, 900 and 1100 Series units with ONIX.

Most notably, Version 2.300 software offers significant performance upgrades and features, including the ability to share waypoint data (and Spot-Locks) in both directions between core units and ONIX.

Another breakthrough feature of Version 2.300 software is a new waypoint list view that allows easy viewing of map areas with dense waypoint clustering, which will be of particular interest to tournament anglers and guides.





Additionally, Version 2.300 software saves anglers considerable time and frustration when transferring waypoint data from non-Humminbird sources via an SD card. Version 2.300 imports and converts Raymarine, Lowrance, Garmin, and Google Earth waypoints, which can be immediately shared between ONIX and core units on the same network. No PC or laptop required.

The Software Update Process
To begin the update process, users should first verify they have registered their product and previously updated to Version 2.000 or 2.100 software via the owner's My Humminbird account.

Following product registration, users should download the software to their computer. Once successfully downloaded onto your PC, unzip the files on your computer before copying them to a blank 4 GB or greater Class 6 SD card. Do not rename files.

Once the files have been saved to the blank SD card, eject the card from your computer or external card reader and insert into your Humminbird unit. Please note that during the update process it is critical that you maintain continual power to your unit.

Once the installation is completed, power down the unit and restart. Following restart, users will note significantly improved speed and additional new features, including:
Improved cartography data load times
Faster zoom in/out on cartography
Viewable waypoint list for map areas of dense waypoint clustering
Faster network syncing for units with thousands of waypoints
Current navigation track is saved in the event of power loss
Improved waypoint accuracy on chart when waypoints are selected in sonar, Down Imaging or Side Imaging view
Direct import of competitive TWR data (HWR, USR, GDB, MPS, KML, RWF, and GPS Babel extensions)
AS RC1 Bluetooth Remote support
LakeMaster PLUS support

Great video Doug. Can you confirm/answer this question?

Should a Onix owner that is showing a software version earlier than the 2.00 load that version before loading the new 2.300? Is it safe to skip a version or should each version be loaded individually and not skip a version?

I have been hearing horror stories on the unit locking up and or having issues by skipping a version and going direct to the latest version.

Thanks
David @ shut-up-and-fish

Hi David, if you have an older software version than 2.00, you need to load the 2.0 before the 2.30. There are patches in the 2.0 that fixed some of the original problems and without that, you will continue to have problems.

Wondering if there is any way to save all your settings before updating versions. I know most instructions say you should go back to factory settings before the update. It seems with all the tech saving all your settings on a micro SD card would be easy to do...

Yes there is, but the ONIX does not have a microSD card reader.

SD in one of the readers or a microSD in a SD adapter.

Go to the Files folder (SD card symbol at the bottom) open that and locate EXPORT, then Menu Settings.

After you do the software update, go to the same menu and do the IMPORT, then Menu Settings.

That menu also has the Encrypt SD Card feature to download a single location Lakemaster map (Chart Select).

With this update the release notes state that you need to have unit to 2.000 software before updating. Humminbird has left 2.000 on owners accounts. Normally it is not required to update all previous versions but this update must have 2.000 before updating to 2.300.

FYI 2.310 Patch is now incorporated into the 2.300 Software so you will not need to update that if downloading the latest update version on the website
