I just completed a software upgrade on my Zeus 2/H5000 system to V18.3 (on a 2016 Hanse 505) and I encountered two issues worth sharing with this group:

1. The B&G v18.3 software places your Zeus 2-GoFree wireless router at risk. Mine was rendered inoperative following the update and is being replaced under warranty. This is a known issue.

2. Both H5000 Autopilot Controllers went dark following the software update, and neither keypad appeared under Sources (though dashes were evident). The B&G help desk provided these instructions on how to revive them. These may come in handy to users who encounter failed B&G software upgrades with parts of their network that go dark. Link below.

Net, proceed carefully when upgrading software.

I've had the H5000 "dark" problem come up on an upgrade as well...  Really frustrating.   

Thanks for the heads-up
