To put a Sportrak into Software update mode that doesn't appear to turn on (Most likely due to corrupt firmware).

Hold NAV and MENU and press POWER. This should put your Sportrak into software upload mode. Once your GPS is in software upload mode you can use magup in expert mode to upgrade the firmware.

On the screen of my Epson Stylus Pro 4800 InkJet Printer came a message update F/W


it's asking if you want to update firmware, firmware is the softer internal to the printer that tells it how to work / behave / communicate. this is sometimes updated by the manufacturer.

sounds like you are in the service menu...if you press the cancel buttons, or shut it down and restart the printer it should return to normal operations.

MacBook Software Updater - continually prompts to install an update


You're probably not actually flashing the firmware, but downloading the utility to do so. Follow these steps:
1. Quit all other open applications. Open the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware update which is in your Utilities directory

2. Click Shut Down in the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update window and wait for your computer to shut down.

3. Press and hold the power button on your MacBook Pro until the power indicator light flashes repeatedly, then release the power button to begin the update.

A status bar indicates the progress of the update.

Important: Do not interrupt the update.

Your computer restarts automatically when the update is completed and opens the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update.

4. Click OK, if the firmware is now up-to-date.

Gps malfunction


Try updating the firmware. http://www.magellangps.com/support/softwareupdates/SporTrak_BasicStd.asp I heard of the "no pos" message fixed after a firmware update, and also with fresh NimH bats. could be that it's just not getting enough power from the bats to make the connection. Good luck
