I just did the update to version 6 of the firmware on my OPN 1 aids. The whole update took about 3 1/2 minutes and it did both aids at the same time. At the beginning of the update it provided a warning that the aids would be reset to the factory settings and that they needed to be reloaded after the update to get the setting back.
At the end of the update it said to reconnect the aids (they are disconnected from Genie 2 during the update) which I did - as part of reconnecting the aids were automatically reloaded with my settings so I didn’t have to do anything other than click on “Connect” to get them back to normal.
I don’t really see anything different as far as programming the aids with Genie 2 goes. Everything looks the same to me (I didn’t take a lot of time looking, just a quick “look around”).
The Oticon On app on my iPhone 8+ (and the iPhone itself) automatically connected to the aids with no problem at all. I was able to implement the new feature in the app as well now that I have the version 6 firmware. The new feature appears to be a data sharing process where you agree to share your data with Oticon - no real mention about what they are going to do with it. If anyone has some insight about this I would love to hear about it.
