The long anticipated firmware update is now available here.

Apologies if this has already been posted elsewhere - I had a quick look and didn't see it anywhere.

Thanks Gwynn.... that seems to be the 3rd update for the
GPS unit

I've DL'd the PC and Mac versions to check if they are the same.

Edit: The contents of both files are identical apart from
3 hrs diff. on the time stamps (probably the OS's messing
about).

The SFV checksums are

FWDC209B.BIN 62B76A32
README.TXT EDC2FD97

It's worth checking the *.BIN file when it's on your
SD card.

Thanks Gwyn. This is the first update I've done as I wanted to make sure everything worked well on the 1.01 version it came with. I followed the instructions and it all went without a hitch. Algernon, I didn't check the checksums because I didn't think of doing so. Have you ever experienced any problems with the download or are you just being very careful and professional?

Just tried to download it from the Pentax UK website and all it does is open a new tab on Firefox. Anybody had any luck?

Go to the Japanese source! The UK link have been dead for a while - I think they are having a hard time getting to grips with all that web stuff

Just downloaded from the above link, but it is not, to me, in an obvious place!

Pentaxforums have a direct link from this page.

Edit - that seems to be a Mac only link . Sorry.

Thanks Gwyn, Just downloaded from your starting link.

Would you believe I'd had my K5 since before Christmas and apart from checking that it's working, I've not had chance to use it.

The Mac only link is fine - it's just a ZIP file that has the .BIN file included. The Windows version is just an auto-unzipper-wrapper-in-an-EXE

So you can unzip the Mac one on Windows

There are various free sfv checkers available

OR

If you have Winzip just ZIP the file up and read the
sfv value off the Winzip info screen.
