It sounds like you are not the only one with an issue on this upgrade. This sounds like a firmware issue. Please notify your manufacturer regarding the situation ASAP so they can work on resolving this issue with possibly another firm ware upgrade. This is a software issue... Let me know how that goes and what you find out so we can proceed. Also, I've worked for a projector manufacturer who ran into similar issues with upgrades, they need to know in order to correct the problem.... Good luck and talk to you soon!

I own the Kenwood DNX7140 navigation system. Periodically the screen says "Software Update Complete" and teh system locks up. I have never updated teh software though. What is wrong with it?

You need to update your software. Garmin does this through a downloaded file you burn to a CD. You then do a firmware update to the Kenwood from the CD. Instuctions are on-line at:

Doesn't your touch screen work, or TT menu frozen?
If frozen menu, then update it to new version or older version.
if screen trouble, you need to get TT touchscreen calibrator. If you don't know, bring to waranty.

GO720 Map Update problem

It appears that this problem was a case of non-backwards compatability with maps to application versions. My gps was on v8.02 application which was not compatable with the v8.15 series of maps. I had to remove ALL the software off the gps, allow it to rebuild using TomTom Home up to v8.300 and then re-load the v8.15 maps. This then stopped my older maps from working.......
I can see this working in a commercial sense; ie every time there is a gps version update everyone will need to purchase new maps, but jeez it's bloody frustrating!!

Blank Screen on Garmin E-Trex Vista

The problem is that your software version needs updating. A recently added satellite creates a glitch in the older software. Go to the Garmin website, load WebUpdater if you haven't already done so, and the updated version (3.8) will automatically install to your Garmin unit. I had the same symptoms, they have now disappeared and my Etrex Vista is back to normal.

For online updating you must have Webupdater

After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform allfuture software updates from your computer. Simply connect yourcompatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater fromyour computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs","Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater".

Attention! It were cases that unit software newer than on Garmin site and it were losings of local language support after online updates. You must deside before do you need these changes of firmware or not so important.

Why can't update the firmware of streetpilot C330 ?

I would suggest getting in touch with the Garmin tech support. You may have to send the unit back for a hardware fix. There were some issues with new updates in some of their older products.

If the unit is working okay and you see no issues, you may find better value to leave it alone, and over time save up for a newer unit. If you look at their new NUVI series, these are far improved from the generation of the one you presently have.
