AirCheck G3 v2.5 Release Notes

AirCheck G3 v2.5 Release Notes

April 29, 2024
These AirCheck G3 Release Notes briefly describe the new features and enhancements included in the release.
See software upgrade Instructions at the end of this document


Version 2.5 New Features


Continuous Survey in the AirMapper app

  • The continuous survey method is considered by many to be an easier way of collecting site survey data because less tapping is required by  the user. When performing a continuous survey, the user need only tap when they change walking directions. All sampled data that happened  etween the last click and the current click is then evenly distributed along a straight line between these two click points. To access this new  survey mode, within the AirMapper app settings, go to Survey Mode and select the Auto Sampling option.

  • For optimal results with continuous survey, the user needs be sure to walk at a consistent pace and should set the Auto Sampling Period to a reasonable value. Large changes in walking speed will cause data to become skewed (and thus inaccurate) in the resulting heatmaps.

  • Continuous survey lends itself well to long hallways or open environments in which the user will be able to walk their path with little to no interruption.

Problems Filter in the Wi-Fi app

  • Identifying APs, BSSIDs, or Clients for which a problem has been detected is now easier than before. The ability to filter your list of  devices by Problems is now available within the Wi-Fi app.
