Troubleshooting - Error: Cannot save whilst in Read only mode via USB

Option 1:  Not connected via a USB cable

The system requires you to be connected via the USB rather than wifi.  This is a security feature.  Connect via USB

Option 2:  Connected via USB cable

Sometimes when you are working our newest version of the software e.g. 1.028 and the firmware loaded onto the device is older e.g. 1.027 or earlier the above error will occur.  This is due to the new software trying to write to fields the WatchMon doesn't know about.  

The easy solution here is to update the firmware on the WatchMon and then it will allow you to change config again.

Go to the  Tools menu

Select  Firmware Updater

Press Verify then Press Upgrade
