The attached firmware update is V11.05.010 for the current RF glasses utility.

This change allows an improved method for the user to change polarity.

The new instruction for this is as follows:

Push joystick UP momentarily to clear LEDs. Now hold UP until 4 LEDs are lit and release. This is Polarity Mode, pushing Joystick Left/Right momentary while in this mode will produce the following:

2 LEDs= standard polarity
3 LEDs= Reverse Polarity.

After two minutes of non-use the mode is saved and returned to normal operation.

To install the firmware update:

1. Remove any previous BC5100 glasses utility. Unzip and install the firmware via Setup.
2. Shut down the PC/Laptop and remove any USB wireless network cards temporarily. (Sometimes their IRQ can interrupt the update midstream.

3. Reboot and plug in your transmitter with its proper USB adapter cable to the PC USB port.

4. Run the VIP3D USB Management Utility. It should report the device detected. Click the Update Tab and proceed.
Do not disturb the cable until completion, after the update completes the transmitter will begin LED strobing as before.

The utility still operates as before for adjusting duty cycle and delay.

This should help those that had difficulty with the previous method of changing polarity.
