FlightScope v6.0.6 Software

4 November 2011

New Features

  1. Added a new chipping mode to the main menu. Grids on the session screens focus on the first 60 yds/m.
  2. Added a new sensor status indicator that is only using one block.
  3. Added a new sensor power saving feature. Click on the sensor status to sleep the sensor, or go F10->Sensor->Sleep. The sensor will auto sleep by default after 30 minutes of no activity. Set the duration in F10>Sensor->Auto Sleep. The sensor is also put to sleep when the software is closed.
  4. The FlightScope X2 will now auto level before it measures a shot and while the sensor is active. Use F10->Sensor->Auto Level to manually force an auto level. If auto leveling is not possible, then a warning is displayed telling the user to manually level the sensor. An extra decimal digit is displayed in the hint for the angle values. The valid angle ranges for the X series has changed:
    X2 Complete: Tilt 9.7 to 10.3; Roll -0.3 to 0.3
    X1 and X2 Basic: Tilt 9 to 11; Roll -0.3 to 0.3
  5. A security password can be configured for the FlightScope X2 Wi-Fi network. Connect the sensor on USB and click on "Wi-Fi Setup" in the setup wizard.
  6. The firmware version of the FlightScope X2's Wi-Fi module is now available on the F10->Sensor->"System Info" dialog.

  1. The driver optimizer screen has been changed to show new optimality contours. There is not one optimal available anymore, but rather a 1st level optimal is given. Sliders have been added to change smash, launch angle and backspin. The values can also be manually entered by clicking on them above the sliders. Only the current club’s min/max ranges are now shown, not all the clubs anymore.

Multiple F10 entries under help had been made for the different user manuals. The manuals can also be updated through the internet.
  9. Reports published to emails are now sent through the FlightScope server. The client’s email client is not used anymore. Reports are queued if the PC is not connected to the internet. The reports are sent the next time on start-up or through the F10->Publishing menu.
