Hold down the center button for the "slow" start up and it will tell you what version you have.

You can also take your marker along to a tournament where Planet have techs and they will update it for you.

In all honesty, I don't know if there is even v2.00 firmware available at this point. There have been a number of small changes made to the Geo firmware since it was released, but these have all versions of the v1.xx, with 'xx' increasing incrementally with the changes.

So, certainly there are firmware updates to be had, I'm just not certain that there is actually v2.00 firmware.

Mine was updated a couple months ago and I have v1.24

I don't know if there are any newer versions since that. The v1.00 I had before had an issue where if there was an eye fault, the board would default to 12BPS. This was a BIG problem when PSP was at 10BPS, and even stopped my team from moving on at Cup!

But now that PSP is at 12BPS, it shouldn't be much of an issue, because that's probably where you'd want it to default to anyways. Another obvious difference, is that the newest flash now has presets for PSP at 8, 10 and 12BPS. Very handy IMO.

I'm not really sure what other "updates" there were. Maybe some small bug fixes.

v1.00 firmware also has the training mode that cycles your bolt at low dwell - like the traditional training mode on older Egos. Newer Geos and Egos just beep a sound module on the board to let you know when you have pulled the trigger. OK, you lose the feel of your marker "firing", but it is safer. It was found that Geos and Ego9's, with their new generation of solenoids (particularly in the case of the Ego9, some of which had solenoids with overdwelling issues), would occasionally cycle fully when used in training mode, which could have lead to accidents occurring.

Later firmware versions also resolved some issues when using the board with RF chips placed parallel to the solenoid, though it is still strongly recommended that you use the 3-pin auxiliary port and the Eclipse auxiliary cable when using an RF chip - it powers the chip independently of the solenoid, which helps with cycling reliability.
