Moultrie Firmware FAQ

***When updating a camera to be used with Moultrie Mobile, it is important to use the SD card from the camera that has been attached to the Moultrie mobile Field Modem. Once you have that SD card, or if you’re updating a camera that has never before been connected to a Moultrie Mobile Field Modem, proceed with the following firmware upgrade instructions for your camera.

A-Series (includes Game Spy Micro Camera)

  1. To see if your camera requires a firmware update, first remove SD Card. Press and hold the DOWN selector, Turn camera to “SETUP” (this is “IRAIM” for 2015 models). Once camera powers on, release DOWN selector & press “OK”. The first screen that flashes will be the camera type, the second screen will be a 4 digit code that tells you the date of the firmware on the camera. You read this date as the last number of the year, the month, and the day. For example: 6308 is March 8, 2016.
  2. If you do not have the most recent firmware installed, proceed with instructions below.
  3. Insert SD card into computer (using available slots or card reader adapter)
  4. Download the most recent firmware HERE. A “.BIN” file will be downloaded.
  5. Copy or Drag the .BIN file directly to your SD card. Before removing the SD card from the computer, ensure it is safely disconnected from the computer.
  6. Insert the SD card back into the camera. With power set to OFF, press and hold the “down” selector, as you hold it down, turn the power switch to “Setup” for 2016 cameras. On pre-2016 cameras you will turn the power switch to “IR Aim”.
  7. Once the unit powers up, release the down selector button, and press the “OK” button to initiate firmware update.
  8. System will reboot if the update is successful.
