Upcoming Dive Shows
Shearwater Research will be at the following dive shows:
Just tried to do the firmware update now and it doesn’t seem available yet. Still getting v72 for my Petrel 2
Hi Richard, v81 is available for Petrel 2, it usually take a little while for the changes to reach everyone. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org should you still have this issue.
Thanks, I’ve just tried now and its now available
So does this officially mean there will be no more firmware releases for Petrel 1 ? I would have loved to get the ‘rate’ feature and was anticipating it since seeing it in the peregrin 🙁
That’s correct the Petrel 1 is no longer supported.
If you run into any issues with your Petrel please let us know.
Hi guys, how about the updates for Shearwater Predator?
The Predator has reached it’s product end of life and is no longer supported, so there are no more firmware updates for it.
Let us know if you experience any issues with your dive computer.
Hi Guys, will this firmware be released for the Teric too at some point? I’ve already updated my Petrel 2 and Perdix AI so looking forward to having the same features on my Teric.
The Teric will receive its own firmware release in the future.
ok thanks Dylan, sad but we had a good run 🙂 thanks for the support
hi, any plans to add freediving feature to the perdix ai?
Is there any way where perfix can have extetnal monitoring for PPO2? Can a fischer connector will do?
Hello, Mr. DelaCruz. Unfortunately, no. As it currently is, the Perdix dimensions do not allow for a cable connection in addition to the electronic components already in place. This is why cable connections are limited to Petrel models.
I have purchased a new Perdix Ai. Firmware update to version 81 is not possible. At the end of the update, I get an error message on the dive computer. Firmware update Failed.
For the sake of completeness. I tried the update on my desktop with the Shearwater app (windows 10).
With kind regards,
Han van Helmond
Hi Han, I’m sorry you’re having these issues with your Firmware update. I have seen your email sent to info(at)shearwater.com, and a member of our Software team will get back to you.
I am also not able to upgrade to v81 from v72 on my Perdix AI from Windows. I get Firmware upgrade failed. Is there something I should do to resolve this issue?
Hi Eric, I’m sorry to hear you are having these issues with updating your Perdix AI’s firmware.
I have a few questions to help diagnose your issue:
– What Software are you using? (IE: Shearwater Desktop or Cloud?)
– What is the Serial Number of your Dive Computer?
Could you please email info(at)shearwater.com with your answers, and we can work through this issue with you further.
Firmware update v81 failed on both of PerdixAI using old Desktop application (BT connection is unstable).
New Shearwater Cloud Desktop does not connect to Perdix AI ( or vice versa)
Shearwater mobile application doesn’t have Firmware Update feature.
Looking for resolution of the issues.
Also, spring under the cup has broke in my second unit.
Could you make update to peregrine
To have compass ?please
I just updated my firmware for my perdix AI. I did this through the iOS app. Is there a way I can sync my dive log back on here as it looks like it cleaned them out . I have them on the app but not on the dive computer . My next question is I was having issues connecting the Bluetooth to my pc to sync my dive log on there . How can I download this from the cloud to my pc?
Anyone having the FW issues. Most likely you are already current. It’s a bug in the software telling you it needs updated. Check your computer first and make sure it needs it.
