Firmware updates are available from Hemisphere for the P206 receiver in the Geode, such as for enabling support for Galileo and Beidou. Older Geode units with the optional serial port can be updated in the field. Newer Geode units with later factory installed firmware can potentially be updated using the USB port. Otherwise a Geode would need to be submitted to our repair center for firmware update as instructed at the following web page.
