Jorak,

It's best that you register online to ensure that you have coverage of warranty for your purchase. Avoiding it too long in hopes of prolonging the warranty may only result in your warranty being cancel or deemed invalid. It's safe to register online. No worries. The latest software is version 2.80. Yours is pretty outdated. Use the webupdater to get the latest firmware.

Hi bro tlchuan,

During clear sky with no cloud can get up 3M accuracy. Normally 3-4M.
Inside building 6-9M. Nice topo view.
