How do I update my Trackers via the Tracker Software Updater?
Download the Software Updater – You will need to use a USB Mini cord for all T3 software updates (and a USB C-Type cord for all future Tracker 4 updates.) The USB port is located inside the battery box of your Tracker transceiver.
Follow the prompts closely while performing any software updates. If, for some reason, your Tracker Software Updater times out, the USB cord becomes unplugged, or your computer shuts down during this process, restart the program from the beginning and continue to follow the prompts.
