The HorizonADV Windows-based (8/7(32-bit)/Vista/XP/2K) software package offers a flexible and dynamic user interface designed to easily guide you through the data collection and review process. This software operates with our standard ADV, MicroADV, and real-time ADVOcean systems.

Note: Systems must have firmware version 8.0 or later.

ADV systems using HorizonADV must have ADV CPU firmware version 8.0 or later installed. If you need to update your system's firmware, contact SonTek Support.

If you have a version of HorizonADV earlier than v1.00 (e.g., beta testers), you must first uninstall the old version of HorizonADV before installing the new version.
