Updating Firmware on an ICD-HP

1.Download the ICD-HP update or detach it from an email sent by an authorized Hunter individual.

2. The file will be sent in a "zip" format. This may require WinZip, 7Zip or similar utilities to extract the data. Save the file to your desktop, or any other easy to locate file locations.

3. Place the ICD-HP in Flash Mode.

  • Connect the supplied USB cable to the ICD-HP. The mini-USB connector on ICD-HP is underneath the blue screw down cap on the connector end of the ICD-HP. (This is a standard mini-USB and replacements can be purchased at electronics stores, if necessary.)
  • Turn the ICD-HP power off with the power button.
  • Press and hold the ? (Info) button.
  • Press the power button to turn ICD-HP back on.
  • Release the ? (Info) button when the display appears. The display will read, “DO NOT DISCONNECT: PLEASE WAIT…” and will show a place for a progress bar.

4. Open the zip file on the computer, and double-click the "Setup.exe" file. This will start a small program in a black window. For instructions on How to Unzip a file with your software follow this Support Article Link.

The program will prompt you to connect the ICD-HP (if you have not already done so), and press Enter to continue.

The flash update process may take 2 or 3 minutes. Characters will appear in the computer window as the update continues. The progress bar on the ICD-HP will begin to advance.

Note: Do not disconnect the ICD-HP before the update is completed! Doing so may leave the ICD-HP in an unusable state.

  • If the ICD-HP does become disconnected before the update is complete, start the process over again (step 3) from the beginning.

5.  When the update is complete, the ICD-HP display will return to the main menu. The software program will show, “Press any key to end this program”.

  • Press any computer key to end the update program.
  • You may now disconnect the ICD-HP for field use, or use it on USB power with the new update.

 

If the ICD-HP is already connected to the computer, turn the ICD-HP power OFF with the power button.

  2. Open the zip file on the computer, and double-click the Setup.exe file. This will start a small program in a black window. The program will prompt you to connect the ICD_HP (if you have not already done so), and press Enter to continue. The flash update process may take 2 to 3 minutes and characters will appear in the computer window. The progress bar on the ICD-HP will begin to advance. Note: Do not disconnect the ICD-HP before the update is completed! Doing so may leave the ICD-HP unusable.
     
  3. When the update is complete, the display will flash that it was successful, and you may now disconnect it.
