NOTICE: Consider this version experimental! For normal use we recommend version 1.1.6.

1. Added wfview server to enable support for wfview, see included ‘x6100 wfserver.pdf’ file for setup instructions.

wfview is a free and open source program that allows many modern Icom ham radio transceivers (such as the Xiegu X6100, IC-7300, IC-9700, IC-7610, IC-R8600, the IC-705, and many others) to be controlled via a computer. wfview shows the gorgeous spectrum display on whatever display is connected, including projectors, touch screens, and TVs. wfview allows for full radio (remote) control from a computer keyboard and basic control from a numeric keypad. wfview can run on hardware ranging from the $35 Raspberry Pi to laptops to desktops. wfview runs on recent versions of Linux, macOS, and Windows. wfview supports rig control over ethernet/wifi as well as over the traditional USB serial CIV bus. wfview also allows older radios to be accessed over the internet, for full control and low-latency audio streaming.

More information about wfview is found at wfview.org.

Tips & Note:
#### The X6100 internal WiFi antenna is only usable when adjacent to the access point. Consistent performance is achieved by connecting a wired USB-C LAN dongle to the HOST connector using a LAN cable between the radio and access point.

Always read the enclosed update log!

ATTENTION: If you have firmware older than the previous January 17 update, please see the below information regarding the battery management update;

1. The built-in battery gauge is enabled to manage the battery cell. After the upgrade, the battery voltage will no longer be used as the management data, but the battery capacity measured by the battery gauge will be used as the management data. The relevant precautions are as follows:

1.1 After updating the firmware, please perform 4 full charge and full discharge cycles in a row, after which the fuel gauge will measure accurately. Just after updating the firmware, before the 4 times of charge and discharge are completed, the displayed power error is large, so don’t pay attention to it. The charging process should be kept as continuous as possible until the charging instruction is completed, which is conducive to the accurate capacity determination of the fuel gauge.

1.2 The updated charging indicator status is as follows:
Blinking: Indicates charging
Steady on: Indicates that charging is complete
Off: When the charging option is turned off in the menu, the indicator light will not be on.

1.3 After the update, when the power is lower than 10%, the battery symbol shows red and the interior is empty, and the device will automatically shut down.

1.4 The battery voltage is no longer used as the basis for the judgment of low battery.
