One of the most unique features of the Z1 Travel CPAP is the ability to upgrade the machine's operating system -- to implement performance refinements, add new features, or update capabilities -- with a home computer connected to the internet and a USB Cable. Remote upgrades are a great way to ensure your Z1 is always performing at its best.
Upgrading your Z1 Travel CPAP Machine's firmware and software is a simple process that can be completed at home in just a few minutes. Currently upgrades require a PC using Windows 7 or 8; however compatibility with Apple's Mac OS is planned for future releases. In addition you will need a USB Cable, to connect your Z1 to your computer, and internet access.
HOW DO I TELL WHAT FIRMWARE VERSION MY Z1 IS CURRENTLY USING?
Each time your Z1 CPAP Machine powers up the current firmware version number will be displayed on the machine's home screen. For instance the numbers 2_0_0_10 would indicate firmware version 22.214.171.124.
DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO INSTALL THE NEW FIRMWARE
Step 1: If you have not done so you must first download and install the HDM Data Viewer on your PC. Your Z1 has stored all of the sleep data since your first night’s use in its flash memory. Syncing your Z1 with the Data Viewer application will ensure that you do not lose existing sleep data.
DOWNLOAD HDM Z1 DATA VIEWER SOFTWARE
Step 2: Once the Data Viewer is installed follow the instructions to Sync your Z1. Once your Z1 has synced, follow the instructions to save your data to file. This will save existing data to your PC to prevent its loss during the firmware upgrade.
Step 3: Download and install the Z1 Firmware Installer.
