Captivate firmware

The release of Leica Captivate firmware v4.1 is expected very soon so it’s a good time to review the last two major releases.

We recommend users should always be running the latest version, it’s free to update [with a current CCP], ensures your equipment works smoothly and minimises support issues.

The current version is Leica Captivate v3.5 but you may be running an even earlier version.

Here are the highlights of Leica Captivate v3.0 and v3.5:
