One Comment

I have tried several times to manually update software and it keeps saying it is up to date although i know there has been an update since purchase. The software is at 1.0 and there is a 1.5 update but it does not want to update. How do I get the tablet to update software? I have tried doing a factory reset and it still does not work. Please help.

Thank You,

Isabel E.
