Firmware and Software versions 0.70 have been released by Plex. This fixes a few bugs in the CAN setup that I reported to Plex - they fixed it very quickly and I am quite impressed with the turnaround!
FIXED: The CAN TX ID was not displayed in hex as the label indicated
FIXED: The CAN TX ID value would revert to the previous value when another configuration setting was changed
FIXED: When disconnecting the USB cable during realtime data transfer, the software would freeze
IMPROVED: in menu 4.6 acceleration has been added to the CAN Id value change
FIXED: in menu 4.6 the can bus transmit id was not displayed correctly
FIXED: the yellow and red leds would still be activated event if the level and warning threshold
FIXED: in menu 4.5 the trigger input was not activated
I reported some of those same CAN display bugs! Glad to see them fixed.
Their support is awesome! I'd say quite a few people came across those bugs as they were slightly annoying!
