What does the GS-911 downloader do?

« Back to Table of Contents

In April 2010, we released the GS-911 Downloader.  This is a PC based application that ONLY runs on a Windows PC. However, you use this application to download ALL versions (including mobile versions), to your PC, from where you can redistribute them to your mobile device. 

As an alternative, the browser window that is opened once the GS-911 Downloader has authenticated your GS-911 interface, also allows you to mail links to the mobile downloads. That way, if you can access any form of mail on your mobile device, it will allow you to install the mobile version on your mobile device, from within the mail message on your mobile device.

Once you have downloaded the GS-911 Downloader and run it on your PC, the application will ask you to connect your GS-911 interface, which is required so it can determine the license on the interface. This is how the GS-911 Downloader determines what software is available for YOUR specific device.  The downloader will then launch a web page, listing links of the available downloads.

This became necessary with the introduction of the translations of GS-911.  If for instance you purchased your interface from the Dutch distributor, then the Dutch translation of GS-911 will be automatically available to you.  If you have any other interface (not purchased by the distributor that was responsible for the translation) then you will have an option of purchasing this translation where after it will become available for you too... (please see the FAQ on Translations)

Of course the other great advantage of the GS-911 Downloader is that you no longer have to remember your login credentials to download the GS-911 software.
