“What’s the Float Package?”
The Float Package is a Onewheel-centric replacement for the stock Balance Package found in VESC FW / VESCTool 6.0, which itself is a port of the original Balance App we are used to. You can find more info on the Float Package and how to upgrade to it here: How to Update to VESC FW 6 / VESC Tool 6

So, you make a backup, update archive, download pkg again/update.
restore settings

Right?

Yup! Depending on changes to the config across updates, sometimes itll carry over your existing config, no backup necessary, but it’s much better safe than sorry. If you backup and restore after updating, itll fill in everything it can, and any new parameters added in the update will just stay at default.

My version from the App Store is 1.2.5. Is there a beta channel or something?

There’s a Test Flight version that I believe is limited access, not 100% on that. But from what I remember, Dado mentioned that the App Store version should be updated probably over the holidays or after.

Hey nico is there any way to have the buzzer work with duty cycle angle set. It would be nice to use buzzer as a warning before i actually start to Tiltback. I have buzzers installed in both my boards and would love some additional configurations. Thanks in advance

It would be possible yes, though we generally dont recommend using the Buzzer for Duty Cycle alerts, as they generally aren’t very audible at all at speed. Having more configurability over what the buzzer does when could be nice though.

Im also wondering if the total millage is working with float package. It seems to not be working for me but i thought i heard it was carried over from atr24v?

Hi Nico,

at first thanks for the float package!
and how can I update to v0.7 in the vesc app is only v0.6.
