The user manual was even especially translated for our croatian reseller. The spread of reseller shows how popular this product has become over the last few years. And now with the new camera model, the G700SE GPS+Compass, more and more markets needs to be served every day.
Ricoh recently released the latest firmware version 1.07 for the G700SE. This update adresses several issues and equippes the camera with a few new functions at the ame time.
Add Folder: the camera can create several destionation folders on the SD-card
GP-1 refresh: Enables a manual reset of the GPS-Modul
Images can now be sent to mobile phones via Bluetooth
When GP1 has no GPS data, the signal sign is changed to orange
WPA-PSK connection trouble in manual setting by camera menu
Bluetooth divice name is changed to ‘Caplio G700SE’ to ‘G700SE’
FTP server connection trouble
Failure when sending files via IIS FTP server.
Part of the file breaks when it’s sent via FTP.
In some case, cannot be connected with Bluetooth device.
Cannot send image files by Bluetooth to Trimble GeoXM/ProXH (Windows6.1)
When Barcode modul (BR-1) is connected to G700SE, 1 dimension barcode from interleaved 2 to 5 cannot be read.
