What’s Changed in Version 3.0.2

New Features

  • Over-the-air updates are now supported when LabQuest® 3 has a live internet connection.
  • Language localization now includes Japanese and Thai.
  • The Keep button, , used for event-based data collection, now has a localized text label.

New Sensor Support

  • The following sensor(s) are now supported:
    • Go Direct® Mini GC

Significant Defect Resolutions

  • This version includes overall performance and stability improvements.
  • Go Direct sensors have improved performance when connected via Bluetooth® wireless technology:
    • Setting up multiple channels is faster.
    • The delay between tapping collect, , and obtaining the first data point has been reduced.
  • An issue has been resolved that prevented named USB flash drives from being discovered by LabQuest 3 when exporting a TXT file or when using the Print-to-File feature.
  • Email support for non-Gmail email clients is improved. (Gmail™ accounts are recommended.)
  • Issues related to using a LabQuest-hosted (ad hoc) network have been addressed.

Known Issues

LabQuest App

  • Printing to USB or Network printers is not available in this release. Use the Print-to-File feature instead.
  • The Run indicator button, , can expand to cover the Collect button if a renamed dataset has too many characters. Rename your dataset to address the issue.
  • Shading of the selected data on the graph is not synchronized with the shading of points in the data table.
  • Data struck from the table are not shown to have been removed from the graph when you switch views. Rescaling the graph fixes the issue.
  • Beer’s law experiments can report 0 absorbance for the first kept data point. Additional points kept are recorded as expected.
  • When using Data Matrix mode, the sensor meter continues to update after locking the value. The value is locked and stored in the data table.

Sensor Issues

  • The following sensor(s) are unsupported:
    • Go Direct Cyclic Voltammetry System
  • Using two or more Go Direct sensors connected via Bluetooth wireless technology can be problematic. Connect at least one sensor via USB whenever possible to mitigate this issue.
  • Sensors of different types (BTA/BTD, USB, or GDX) or sensors connected to LabQuest in different ways (USB or wireless) can have measurements reported with different timestamps (lag).
  • Systolic and diastolic pressures are not shown in the plot details after collection completes. Results can be viewed on the Meter or Table screens.
  • Data collection with Go Direct Blood Pressure requires you to manually stop data collection.
  • The Power Amplifier audio cable, speakers, or headphones connected to LabQuest audio port before it is turned on are not detected. Reconnect them after turning on the unit.

Issues with Other Applications

  • Camera App
    • The Camera App can search for and not find certain connected cameras.
  • Connections App (Networking)
    • The list of available networks does not populate when you are already connected to a network. Turn Wi-Fi off then back on to force the list to populate.
  • LabQuest Viewer
    • Connecting to LabQuest Viewer® can require you to remove a remembered device and then add it back in order to successfully connect to the device.
    • When using the LabQuest Viewer software to setup a calculated column, you cannot control the equation dropdown menu. This makes it difficult to select the desired equation. Select the desired equation directly on LabQuest 3.
  • Logger Pro® 3 and Graphical Analysis 4
    • The double-arrows screen does not dismiss from LabQuest if the LabQuest unit is suspended while a computer or Chromebook™ has control of the unit.
  • Periodic Table App
    • Scrolling a Periodic Table details dialog for an element can switch to showing the Home screen. Start the scroll further from the top of the screen.
  • Update App
    • Reset Settings—System defaults option does not reset the Audio app volume levels.
    • Reset Settings—User-created experiments option does not remove the experiments.

This was the initial software release for LabQuest 3.
