    Xmaxx 8s Issues with updating firmware

    Just picked up an Xmaxx 8s from a buddy which has the Traxxas Bluetooth module, gps speed reader, voltage sensor, and motor and esc temp sensor. I downloaded the app to my iphone and powered on everything. As soon as the app see the truck come on, it says the truck needs an update. It tries to update and fails, does this a few times and then keeps asking to retry. Truck drives fine, but this app wont work. Any ideas ?

    Turn off the mobile data and wifi. If troubles continue call customer support. They'll walk you through the process.

    Make sure your phone battery is full, transmitter batteries are fresh and lipos are full (also 8s). My phone battery was on 50% when I tried it first and it did the same thing. Once my phone was fully charged it worked.

    I had same issues with trying to do the tsm receiver updates today. Turning off WiFi solved the issue for me. On Android. Others say put into airport mode. Then turn on BT

    Go to the main Traxxas Page and use the chat button to speak with their tech team.

    I had an issue to on my Erevo 2.0, while updating the firmware 4 red lights blinking towards the end and shut off. Turned on to four red lights blinking! I tried the up load again and it seemed to work went back to green and ran ok. But the steering was glitchy ( was binding to one side). They said to send the ESC & motor. But I kept working on it and got the steering to finally center properly. So I am holding off shipping it back.

    Good luck!
