Upgrade notices for very old releases:

Please note: If you are upgrading from a previous database (files Waypoint.ewd, Airports.ewd and Airspace.evd) these files need to be removed before you change to the new Navidata.ewd file.

Instructions for updating your Enigma instrument:

Download the file "Enigma.bin" which contains your Enigma flightops operating system and Enigma application program.
Copy this file onto a SD or MMC card (Root folder, not a "subdirectory"), insert into Enigma and switch on.
Please Note: Software updates must be performed using a MMC or SD card. SDHC cannot be used to install software updates.
Enigma will then reprogram itself if another version of software has been installed.
Please note: Depending on your currently installed version, the screen may go dark for between 30 seconds and 60 seconds as the backlight is switched off which is required for some updates. Do not remove power, wait until the update has completed. Your Enigma will report itself for duty after the update has been completed. The Enigma.bin file does not need to remain on the SD card. You can remove it once the update has been completed.

Instructions for uploading a new sound file:

Download the file "Sounds.esd" which contains your Enigma sounds as shipped standard with every Enigma.
Copy this file onto a SD or MMC card (Root folder, not a "subdirectory"), insert into Enigma and switch on.
Go to menu level 2, then select "system setup". Once in system setup, press the down arrow to get to the second page and then select "system initialization". Now select "Load sound file from SD/MMC card". Wait a few seconds for the programming process to complete. You can remove the "Sounds.esd" file from your SD card after you have finished.

2 June 2008 New bootloader release

Important: You must update your Enigma to version or later before changing the boot loader.

Download new bootloader file here (Bootload.odb, about 26KBytes)

If your browser attempts to open the file or saves it with an extention other than ".odb", right-click on the above link, choose "save as". From the drop down list choose "Any files" or "All files" then edit the filename so it shows "Bootload.odb". This should now save the file to your disk correctly.
Ensure that you have your folders set to view all file extensions. If you do not do this the file may be saved as Bootload.odb.html and it will be shown to you as Bootload.odb only. Your Enigma will not recognize this file if it does not have the correct name.

Instructions for programming new bootloader:

Download file Bootload.odb and place on SD card. Ensure that your Enigma has been updated to at least version
Insert SD card and switch Enigma on. Go to Menu level 2, then System setup menu, then System Initialization then select "Replace bootloader".
You will be guided through a number of prompts and after some checks the new boot loader will be programmed and verified. This takes about 2 seconds. During this time your instruments power MUST NOT FAIL.
Updating the bootloader is a critical operation. If this fails you may be left with a non-functional boot loader. In this case your instrument needs to be sent to your MGL Avionics distributor if he has the ability to program a new bootloader (please check) or it needs to be returned to us to perform this operation.
