Post Race Capture Pro Mk3 will not connect to Race Capture App 
I was attempting to update both the app and the firmware today. I think though I have only succeeded in breaking the RCPmk3. Now it will not connect to the race capture app. The green power light comes on and the sd card light flashes yellow very fast. Other than that, nothing. I have checked to make sure that the unit is not stuck in bootloader by verifying the button is not depressed. I do not have an SD card installed as we do not use this unit for data logging.

If I have somehow interrupted or loaded bad/wrong firmware, corrupted the bootloader, or some other coding no no, is it possible to some how manually reset the factory start up sequence?

Can I send the unit in for this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really do not want to buy another unit if this one can be salvaged.

I noticed the same last night- MK3 and a Fire tablet both on the latest app & firmware. Tablet would not connect to the RCP in the dashboard page when it first opened. I then went into setup, read config, and it connected.

Haven't had a chance to diagnose any further.

Hi,

It sounds like the unit did not complete the firmware upgrade process. This is easy to fix - just re-do the firmware update process:

The flashing orange light means the system is in bootloader mode - ready to receive new firmware over USB.

Ultimately, the system is fairly "un-brickable" - by design. Please let us know it goes on your next attempt.

Thanks,
