Hi, I'm trying to update my CK3100 via bluetooth.

I've activated the software update option In the advanced setup, but when I search on the laptop for the device its not shown.

My laptop's bluetooth configuration is operating correctly, and the CK3100 pairs ok with my C500 phone.

I'm running version 4.03 firmware. What can I do to fix this ?

I've seen on the update utility that there's a serial option , is there a cable able to use instead of bluetooth ?

You need to pair the parrot and the computer first - go to control pannel - Bluetooth Devices - click 'Add@; the computer will search and find the car kit which should be switched on - pair the devices.


Use the Parrot update facility with the car kit set to 'Update software' - the car kit will now be found.

I paired them and it still won't update the software. It fails at the first step of the software push. Any ideas?

Early versions of the CK3100 cannont be updated via Bluetooth - but don't think 4.03 should be a problem.
Try this:
Remove drivers that came with Bluetooth adaptor & re-boot with dongle unplugged.
After re-boot, re-insert dongle and let Win XP install native drivers, then run Parrot update again.
IMPORTANT! When the firmware has downloaded do NOT remove power from the CK3100 until it has turned off AND re-booted itself - about 20 seconds. If power is removed during update process it can corrupt the bootloader programme and unit has to be returned to Parrot for re-flash.
