How to update your Dash How to update your Dash Release notes
1. After the software update The Dash will inform you that the update was successfully completed.
1. Automatic feedback during activities. Every 5 minutes your Activity Feedback will be read to you.
2. Audio Transparency is now off, and disabled automatically during the swimming activity mode. This is to avoid the external microphones going into a feedback loop when immersed with water.
3. If the Left Dash is removed from the ear during an ongoing activity, the activity is automatically paused and a voice feedback is played back. The activity is also paused upon removal of The Right Dash, however, this is not accompanied by any feedback
System Status Feedback
1. The LightGuide can now be turned on to »breathe« while wearing The Dash in the ear. This behavior can be toggled on/off in the Bragi App - latest version of the app is required. By default the LED breathing is off.
1. Live Activity tracking values are now transferred and visible in the Bragi App.
2. Renaming The Dash's Bluetooth Device Name is possible in the App. This makes it easy to identify your Dash when connecting via Bluetooth.

2. Improvements to the EarTouch Interface have been made, improving its robustness in bright light conditions.
1. An audio artefact introduced when turning Audio Transparency on & off rapidly has been removed.

3. Stereo sound icons now have improved quality when played together with music
Internal Music Player
1. If The Dash master volume is at 0 (muted) and is inserted into The Charger, the volume will be set to Volume Level 3 for the next use in order to avoid mistaking The Dash for being non functional (instead of just muted).

3. General improvements to the audio quality of speaker and microphone.

1. Frequency change in the LED behaviour during software update. This has been done to make it easier to distinguish the updating process from other notification on The Dash.
2. Showing the battery status of The Dash via »shake« gesture has been improved.
Dash Battery & Power Saving
