What’s Changed in Version 3.0.5.6000

Significant Defect Resolutions

  • Go Direct Mini GC temperature profile is no longer capped at 120 °C; the maximum allowable temperature, 160 °C, is now supported.
  • Wi-Fi passphrases that include a space character are now supported.
  • An issue related to the manual entry of the date has been resolved.

What’s Changed in Version 3.0.5.5000

New Sensor Support

  • The following sensor is now supported:
    Go Direct® Cyclic Voltammetry System

New Features

  • Units running version 3.0.5 cannot be backdated to run older versions of the application prior to version 3.0.4.

Significant Defect Resolutions

  • Issues are fixed related to time-based data collection when using time units other than seconds.
  • Localized language support was added for the keyboard Done button that shows up on some keyboard layouts.
  • An issue was addressed in which Go Direct Electrode Amplifier (used with pH and ORP electrodes) and Go Direct Ion Selective Electrode Amplifier (used with ISE electrodes) were not retaining the sensor channel configuration when changed using LabQuest 3.
  • The Run indicator button, , is now a fixed width.
  • Issues that prevented Blood Pressure sensors from displaying systolic and diastolic pressures in the plot details have been addressed.
  • Email support is improved for manually configured email clients.

Known Issues

LabQuest App

  • 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.

Sensor Issues

  • 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).
  • Go Direct Blood Pressure data collection must be stopped manually.

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.
  • Logger Pro® 3 and Vernier Graphical Analysis®
    • 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.
