Updating the Pieps and Black Diamond Bluetooth (BT) Transceiver

Pieps Powder Package

The Pieps Powder BT/Black Diamond Recon BT and Pieps Pro BT/Black Diamond Guide BT avalanche transceivers support updates using Bluetooth enabled Android and iPhone devices. This makes it very easy to update these transceivers. You can download the apps from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

To update your transceiver using the Pieps App:

  1. Turn on your transceiver while holding the Flag button pressed (this requires some finger gymnastics). Release the button when the Bluetooth icon is displayed and the blue light illuminates.
  2. Launch the Pieps app on your phone.
  3. Choose Device Manager in the app.
  4. If your transceiver is not displayed in the list of transceivers, tap Register and follow the instructions.
  5. Tap "Connect Bluetooth Device" at the top of the screen.
  6. Tap on your transceiver.
  7. Tap "SW Version".
  8. After updating, you may also want to choose "Device Check" to test your transceiver.

The version number of the Pieps Bluetooth avalanche transceivers is displayed immediately after you turn on the device.
