Question about Uniden TRAX-353 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a uniden trax 353 and have plugged it in to my mac computer to do software update. seems to be taking a long time. I have read on some forums that some people have lost all their maps and am now a little too scared to unplug it from my system. It has been going for well over an hour now. What do I do?? Have looked through my manual and there is no reference to this at all. Please help

Unfortunately, this is not that uncommon. I suggest you unplug your gps and restart it. A successful firmware upgrade takes only minutes, so something has definitely gone wrong during yours. Damage may have been done, but it was done more or less immediately, so waiting longer is not going to help. Uniden's 'Trax Central' software has been known to successfully repair Trax 353 units with damaged firmware (which yours may or may not be - you won't know until you restart it). This software is not Mac compatible, so you will need to find a PC to run it on. This software will also allow you to back up your GPS, so that you can't lose any information if it does fail in the future. If your unit is damaged and 'Trax Central' doesn't fix it, it will need to be returned for service. I hope that helps.

I would like to get the latest australian map updates for a Trax 353 if thats possible. Can I download the latest maps off the internet onto an SD card and install it into my trax 353.


hi Joe Peckham you need to download the latest from uniden on to you computer. You can copy the download on to the SD card as a file. in order to do the download on the SD card back on to the Trax 353 see if you can upload files from the SD card. Because it has been my experience that you may need to transfer the file download and copy it into a different file type on the SD card. If you still have the getting started tips and tricks man. See what it says about reading files from SD card. My suggestion use a a 4GB SD card. with nothing on it this way you can erase the SD card and Start fresh. Hope this helps. Also btw read the SD card on your computer first to see if the file downloaded.

Uniden Trax 5000 - unable to use Trax Central


Hi,
Had the same problem with Trax Central software. Ended up successfully using Naviextras Toolbox application. https://www.naviextras.com/shop/portal/downloads
Still don't know what, if any, extras on the Trax Central software. I tried to get it to run on 3 XP boxes and 2 Windows 7 boxes. Gave up in disgust. Good one Uniden.

Uniden trax 430 frozen


I have had a similiar problem with my Trax 430. The screen freezes at the system shut down stage. I have to plug it into the computer via the USB cable. It then recognizes the computer and attempts to do an USB update. Then just unplug it. It should work but not a practical solution when you are driving about.
