Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q) Will the software on the website work with my Noptic Unit?
A) The Software is designed for the NV3 Camera, it also utilizes a Mini USB-B to USB-A cord so be sure to have one of those! Contact any of our distributors to order one.
Q) Why do I need a new USB cord for the new software?
A) We found a lot of issues with the RCA (Analog) to USB (Digital) adapters, to help reduce on this issue we designed a software specific to Noptic that keeps everything in a Digital form. The software also has several very useful tools to utilize as well!
Q) I downloaded the new software and now my Noptic Unit doesn't work?
A) The new software utilizes new hardware, we found a lot of issues with the USB Converter and prefered to take advantage of the digital output on our ECU's. If you have an NV3 Camera be sure to check that the ECU is connected to the MDC with a USB cord.
