SMS Basic/Advanced v11.5 and SMS Mobile v5.5 released!

by Oct 27, 2011SMS™ Software

I’m excited to announce the release of SMS Basic/Advanced Version 11.5 and SMS Mobile Version 5.5 Software today.  The software updates include many enhancements and new features to ensure that it works with the market’s latest display firmware, make the software more user-friendly, and includes the ability to add new layers of information to your data collection. To learn more about these enhancements, please watch the video below.

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…
  • 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.

If you have unlocked your SMS Basic, SMS Advanced, or SMS Mobile PC Software via the web, you can update by opening the software, going to the Help menu, and clicking “Check for Updates”.  For more information on how “Check for Updates” works, click here.

If you have manually unlocked your software by calling into our support team, you will be sent a CD in the mail.  Otherwise, if you would like to install the software sooner and would like to see the release notes, or would like to download a demo version, click here.
