Updating your Bluetooth Talon Software (Android)

Check the Application and Talon Software Version on the App

When a Talon is paired with a device, the Talon app on the device records information about the paired Talon(s) including the software version installed on each. This information can be used to detect if a Talon requires a software update. To check the software version on paired Talon(s), follow the steps below.

  1. From the Talon app Home screen, press the Menu Button.

Update a Single Talon from the Talon App with Android

All updates to the Talon are communicated through the Talon app. The Talon must be paired and communicating to the device through a Bluetooth connection in order for the Talon to be updated. Follow these steps when using an Android device for a single Talon.

  1. Confirm that the Talon is both paired and communicating with the device. Once confirmed, open the Talon App.
  2. If the App recognizes that it is more up-to-date than the Talon, a message will appear on the screen notifying the user that updated Talon software is available. The app will offer the option to either Cancel or Transfer the update. Select Transfer to continue the update.

Update two Talons from the Talon App with Android

Talon software updates are performed through the Talon app. The Talon must be connected and communicating to the device through a Bluetooth connection in order for the Talon to be updated. Follow these steps when using an Android  device for two Talons paired together.

  3. The App will bring up the Software Update screen. On this screen, the Software Version of each Talon in memory will show. If a Talon appears in the list, but the title is in grey, the Talon and the devices are currently not communicating. If Transfer was selected when the Software Update message appeared, the device will begin the update and the Software Update Screen will read Transferring. When the Talons are paired together, the update will be pushed to the other Talon automatically. While the Talon app is transferring a progress bar will appear below one of the Talons listed. While the transfer is taking place, make sure to keep the power of the Talons and device "on" and keep the device in range of the Talons.
