iOS Upgrade

Have an existing C-Monster equipped Power-Pole?
Want to connect it to your iPhone? No problem.
The iOS module snaps right into place on your hydraulic pump circuit board or Micro anchor. And just like that, you’ve added iPhone compatibility. Then download the iPhone App and you can customize your Power-Pole experience. It’s an upgrade that will get you out on the water with the control you’ve been waiting for.

Android Update

All existing Power-Pole anchors with C-Monster operating systems can be quickly and easily updated utilizing one of the two methods below.

Power-Pole C-Monster app for Android phones: Download the latest C-Monster app from the Google Play Store and update the firmware when prompted to do so.

Windows Utility: Update firmware using a mini-USB connection to a laptop computer running the C-Monster Update Utility. This will be the only available option for updating the Sportsman II model or if you do not have a device with an Android operating system.
