It says DSP firmware: 1.1.25.6
Is that the latest as on Cycliq: 1.1.25.636
https://support.cycliq.com/support/solu ... t-firmware



On mine, when I check on the Mac App it shows the correct version (1.1.25.636). On the iOS App it shows 1.1.25.6. Strange.

My guess is that it is just be truncated and the last two digits are cut. Typically, the firmware updated have much bigger jumps in the versioning.

Chopping off the last two digits is a known bug.
If you read config.txt from the SD card you will see the full number in there.

Definitely my last cycliq product. They have been far too slow in fixing the video quality issues.

To the Wahoo users.

Are you having the same issues (GPS) when using the Fly12CE ?

My 6CE has failed after 5 weeks and just a few rides. Conveniently it stopped working on a wet, dark road at 5:30am this morning - I didn't know for about 8km :shock:

Camera lens is all fogged up and there is condensation over the LEDs. Interestingly enough my friend had the same issue a week prior.
I'm guessing our's are both from the bad batch with the dodgy seal (we got ours from the same store, maybe a few months apart).

I recall having to register my unit and serial when I setup the phone app - I wonder if Cycliq ever thought of informing customers who may have the bad batch or if they are just waiting for people to complain?

New unit being sent out.

The quality control isn't quite there in my opinion with Cycliq products (I've had 2 warranty replacements on my older gen 2). But to Cycliq's credit they sort out warranty issues rather quickly!

One minor annoyance with the velcro straps is the rubber backing - the longer strap is folded in the box, when you unfold it, the rubber backing has a tenancy to stick together and tear.

Probably going to get rid of my Fly12CE. I don't really use the light part of it, so can anyone else make some suggestions?

I'm thinking about getting a GoPro Hero 6 and extended battery. To my surprise, there isn't many viable extended batteries that are waterproof.
