August 2004

Version 2.13 - for HP48Gii, HP49G+ and HP49G
For HP48G+ and HP48GX the equivalent version is 2.02 (unchanged)
Version 2.13 fixes a bug in the close module and adapts the software for a difference of the ROM used in HP48Gii and HP49G+ as compared to the HP49G. This difference was affecting COGO, RADI and TRAV functions.

"Arc Length not displayed"

In Quickclose version 3.01 running on an HP49G+ a problem was found where the arc length  was not displayed when entering the data in the Close module. See the picture on the left for the correct display of the sample from the Quickclose manual.
This only seems to happen in older ROM versions (i.c. Version 3.54, Build 31) so the simplest way is to update the ROM of your calculator to version 80 or later. You can do this via the PC and the connectivity kit or via an SD memory card. See our calculator hardware support pages for more info.

Astro Module in Version 3

Version 3 does not (yet) include the Astro module, as it is not used very often any more these days. However, after installing Version 3, you can install the Astro module from version 2, which is also on the Quickclose CD. Note that Astro will reside in its own directory on the calculator. As it is not installed in or under the Quickclose directory, it will not be backed up by the  ->SD  soft-key in version 3.00 and 3.01. Version 3.1 corrects this issue.
