Gps V Firmware

Recommended Posts

I also run the latest firmware from Garmin - but I have also saved the last several (4-5) firmware update files just in case I decide to go back a firmware release or two. This practice of saving past firmware releases helps should a buggy version of the firmware ever be released, and of course this makes it possible to go back to the previous release. Given that kind of flexibility, upgrading to the latest release is fairly risk free.


I hope this helps

It does not delete Wapoints or you stored maps ...

I just wanted to mention this only applies when upgrading the firmware. A couple times when I had to downgrade to an older version of the firmware (due to bugs, etc.) it wiped out all my waypoints and tracklogs. To be on the safe side, you should always backup your data to a file on your PC.
