With new firmware version can you now update the vortech units without actually placing them in a certain mode?

I'm confused is WWD an EcoSmart thing? How did you know there was an update to be made? I have an MP60wES, MP40wES, and a MP10wES, all ran through my WXM in different modes throughout the day. If there is a firmware update what has been added or fixed?

It helps to think of WWD as a first gen of ecosmart. Your pump will be either WWD or ecosmart. NOT BOTH. If the controller says ecosmart on it then it's an ecosmart. I finally figured the whole thing out last night. And no right now you can't do it via the web interface. Also the directions from Neptune army exactly right.But they are close. Just cross check everything with the online manual from vortices website. And for right now when scrolling in the display to download firmware, select ecosmart firmware manual, not automatic

So you updated the firmware on your ecosmart driver?

Just curious... what's the version number for the driver? I have 2.2 according to the apex's module setup webpage.

I haven't heard that there have been any updates to the firmware in over a year. Were there recent updates?

FYI, the most recent version is 2.2. So if you already have that on your vortech, then you wouldn't need to upgrade via apex.
