How do I re-flash my DL1 SPORT?
By re-flashing your DL1 SPORT, the latest software will be installed onto it. Typically, this is only required when requested by the factory to address an issue in the firmware. Note there is a small risk when re-flashing the DL1 SPORT that you will corrupt the unit. If you are re-flashing the unit following an instruction from the factory, then this will be covered within the standard warrantee - if however you are re-flashing the unit without being instructed to then you will be charged for the factory to reset the unit. We would recommend that you don't re-flash the unit unless it is required.
