Firmware - Black Cat I & II

Follow the steps below to update the firmware on your Black Cat Radar Recorder. Note that there are two types of firmware used with the Black Cat Radar - primary (main) and secondary (detector).

The current Primary firmware is 2.2.97. The current Secondary firmware is 2.5.3.


First check to see what is the current firmware in your Black Cat Radar. You can do this by connecting to the Black Cat Radar using the Setup option in STARnext. Note that firmware updating should ONLY be done with a hardwire USB connection, NOT via Bluetooth. Once connected via USB, the middle of the screen will show the primary and secondary firmware numbers, as shown below. Note that any units with 1.X version of Detector firmware MUST be returned to JAMAR for firmware upgrade.
