Gen2 Touch User Interface Sync
User Interface Sync (Gen2 Touch)
– With this feature we are updating the User Interface (UI) of the HDS Gen2
Touch to match that of the new HDS Gen3.
– Most changes are very small between the two versions as the Gen3 UI is based
on the existing Gen2 Touch user interface, but with some key improvements
– For users already familiar with Gen2 Touch there should be little to no learning
curve as for the most part we have not moved the location of menus and
functions contained in menus, however some items, such as Files, have moved
location within a menu

User Interface Sync
What has changed from Gen2 Touch to the new Gen3 User Interface?
• Side menus no longer slide out they scroll up and down on the Home Screen
• Scrolling menus have been the trend in the mobile phone, tablet and computer
industry for years. By making our menus scrolling we make them more intuitive to
learn and use.

Automatic Reboot After Update
Automatic Reboot After Update
•
We have removed the need for a user to remove the SD card to complete the software
update process.
• The unit will automatically reboot after all updates have run
• In this update you will see the updater run, reboot, run again then reboot once more.
• This is actually performing software updates on different components and is
performing normally (do not remove the card after the first reboot)
• Wait until both updates have completed and the unit will boot normally
\
Update process status

Automatic Reboot
Splash Screen (unit booting up)
In rare instances the unit may not finish booting up after the second update is
complete.
• If this occurs please let the unit sit for at least 3 minutes to ensure that
the unit is not still in the update process, if after that time the unit has not
booted normally and you do not see any update activity status information
on the screen please remove power from the unit for 10 seconds.
• Do not ever remove power while the update status bar is on
the screen.
• Once power is reapplied the unit will boot normally.
• This will not occur on future updates and is a one time occurrence as
the new software contains a fix for this condition.

Automatic Reboot After Update
•
With this new update method we also compare the update version on the SD card to the version
installed in the unit. If they match the updater on the SD card will be ignored at power on.
• This means that users can leave the card in their unit and not worry about the unit running
an update on the next power on.
• If for some reason you wish to run the updater again (reload the same version) you will
need to rename the update file from its current .upd format to .auto.upd.
• All you need to do as add “.auto” before the .upd portion of the file name.
• EXAMPLE:
• (original) HDS_Gen3-1.5-51.1.69-r-Standard-1.upd
• (updated) HDS_Gen3-1.5-51.1.69-r-Standard-1.auto.upd
• After the update process runs the “.auto” updater, it will automatically reboot and
automatically remove the “.auto” from the updater name so the unit will ignore the
updater as described above.
