The updates

The updated firmware is for Year 10 GPS devices, meaning 2017 model year computers. Devices included are: Super GPS, Micro C GPS, Micro GPS, Macro GPS, Mini GPS, Micro C GPS watch and Micro GPS watch. 

The updated computer interface can display up to eight data fields on a single screen. Lezyne claims interface has been made clearer with fonts that are fine-tuned for clarity and internationally recognized icons replacing words.

When the device is turned on and linked to a smartphone, rides will be automatically uploaded upon saving. 

A zoom has been added allowing riders to zoom near or far on the breadcrumb page. 

There's also a whole new data field that displays GPS signal strength and battery life.
