In case you haven't noticed already, there is a new software release posted to our Downloads page. This release includes quite a few new features and some important bug fixes.

The first thing to know is that MQGPS users will now need an unlock code to enable 5 Hz operation. Without the unlock code, you will only get 1 Hz. MQ200 users do not need an unlock code.

The unlock code is required only on the Pocket PC (or laptop) that runs Flight. Chart is not affected by the unlock code.

Here are a few of the improvements in 2.6b:

- Qview(tm) mode now outlines each Qview block according to whether the car was faster or slower than the comparison lap. Load up the "reference" lap on the A) side of Chart, then load up the lap you want to compare to on the B) side. Where you see green, you went faster than the reference lap. Where you see yellow-orange, you went slower. This makes is visually very easy to zero in on areas for improvement.

- Qview now rotates with the car (the top of the screen is always "forward", as if you were flying above and turning with the car). This helps keep the Qview plots from crossing over each other so they are more readable in non-Overlay mode.

- Bluetooth connectivity is improved. The initial connection is faster, and in the event of a dropout the reconnect is faster and more reliable.

- We now have a "Racing type" option that allows you to tell the software what kind of racing you are doing (e.g. Road race, Autocross, Drag race, etc.). This allows the software to make better assumptions about things like map scaling, beacon triggering, and so forth.

- If you are using a Pocket PC Phone Edition, and you have set up beacons for real-time lap and segment times, you can enable the SMS feature which will automatically send a text message to your choice of phone numbers every time you cross a beacon position. The text message will contain lap and segment time information.

- Flight recordings are now about half the size they used to be.

There's more. Read the release notes or the new manual for details.

To get an unlock code, you first need to install the software on your Pocket PC (or PC). Run MaxQData Setup and under Settings > Advanced... you will find a number at the top of the page. You send that to us in email and we respond with the unlock code which you have to enter on that same Advanced Settings page.

This is described on the Downloads page:

The code is different for every installation. You do not need an unlock code simply to run Chart, or if you are using an MQ200.
