SMS Basic/Advanced Version 12.6 and SMS Mobile v6.6 Released

by Isaac Bowers on February, 27 2013 in SMS™ Software

Ag Leader is proud to announce the release of SMS Basic/Advanced v12.6 and SMS Mobile v6.6. With this patch release, we have added enhanced support for Ag Leader® Integra and Versa displays running v4.0 firmware, as well as Gradient and Precision Planting displays.
Customers that are current in our yearly maintenance program, or are already on SMS Basic/Advanced v12.5 and SMS Mobile PC v6.5, will have the ability to update online.

 

Before updating to the latest version of the SMS Software, here are a few things you should do first:

  • Check In Projects – If you are an SMS Advanced user, all projects that have been “Checked Out” need to be checked back in. This can be done by going to the File menu and clicking Projects.
  • Create a backup of your data – Creating backups ensures that you have a good starting point in the event in that you have issues during migration or if you have other computer issues, such as a bad hard drive, down the road. Backups can be created by going to the Services menu and clicking Backup/Restore Project(s)
  • Plug devices into the wall – If you’re using a laptop, Ag Leader MESA, Ag Leader Field PC, or other pda device, make sure that you have it plugged into the wall. This will ensure that your device does not lose power while installing the update or migrating data.
