    Reset does not fix it. The message was generated after I had hooked up to my computer and asked for the Garmin down load.

  • Dickaa Nov 18, 2008

    I tried to update a location and then tried to use Garmin again but the message comes back when I turn the unit on

Hello Dickaa,

Have you actually tired to follow the on screen instructions and upgrade it? Whet it ask to continue, but "this will clear all user data"select YES, and procede with the update.

NOTE. If you dont want to lose your information, make a backup of the information on your computer.

Good luck,
Dahaka

Dickaa,

When you pushed the reset, was it turn on? The reset only works if power is active to the Memory.

If the unit WAS on or if you try it this way and it fails, then do the following..

Turn the unit on ..... push settings, then system and then restore. follow the prompts on the screen and this should reset the unit to factory defaults.

Hope you find this usefull
Dave

    Hi All,


    I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!



    I checked snopes.com, and it is for real!!



    Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP.



    PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!


    You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message
    with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD,' regardless of who sent it to
    you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the
    whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from
    someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is
    the reason why you need to send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is
    better to receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and
    open it.


    If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a
    friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately.


    This is the worst virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by
    Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered
    by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus.
    This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the
    vital information is kept.



    COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS. REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US.

Have you tried reconnecting the garmin to the computer and redownloading the latest firmware from the garmin website?

Also, when you click "NO" what happens or prevents you from clicking no?

What method did you use to upgrade? I'm going to take a wild guess: web updater.

This has been the source of many similar problems and so we'll say it again: DO NOT USE WEB UPDATER FOR FIRMWARE UPGRADES.

But now that the first update has partially failed, my advice would be to obtain the latest version of web updater, which supposedly can deal with failed updates, and try again.

    It seems that to solve the problem with ""New software found. The software is older than your current software. Would you like to continue installing? This will clear all user data" message.
    It looks that in some of the past upgrades, u try to perform upgrade using SD card instead of the Nuvi. So u had a situation that on SD card u found GUPDATE.GCD with older creation date than on Nuvi. After u delete GUPDATE.GCD from SD (\Garmin folder) message will be disappeared.
    try this instructions.

To activate your Bluetooth, touch Tool>>Settings>Bluetooth.
For Bluetooth connection, touch the button to pair a Bluetooth device with wireless technology or any device you want to connect with.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
