Problem with serial connection with AMD motherboard


Software that accesses serial ports usually allow you to specify WHICH port you want to connect via.

Your new board should have COM1 and possibly COM2... but perhaps your old setup was running from COM3?

Connect the Casio to COM1, and check the software you are using... set that to "look" at COM1 also. That should work!

NO MAPS


Follow these steps to fix the “UNIT CURRENTLY CONTAINS NO MAP! INITIATING MAP” ERROR.
Step 1: Download the firmware update for your Sportrak model from:
Magellan GPS. Extract the zip file to your desktop.

Step 2: Download the base map file, NA_B101.IMG. This one is hard to find but you might look
on the following yahoo group page for the file: m330 : The Map 330 Club . Look in their FILES folder for the file called, NA_B101.zip. You may have to join this group to gain access to this folder. Download the file and extract it to your desktop.

Step 3: Now that you have the files necessary to fix your unit, follow these step exactly to upload the base map file.
  1. Turn off the unit and connect it to your computer using the Magellan serial cable. If your computer does not have a serial port you can buy a, SERIAL to USB adaptor.
  2. Now simultaneously press and hold that button the looks like the world and the button with the man on it (GOTO button). While holding these buttons, press and release the power button. Two zeros will appear in the middle of the screen like this, 00. Using the central joystick, change the zeros to the number, 98. The press the enter button once.
  3. Go to the folder where you extracted the firmware update you downloaded first and look for the Magup.exe file and double click it to launch the Thales Navigation Firmware Uploader. Click NO on the UPLOAD pop up window. Now Click on EXPERT from the menu bar. The EXPERT SETUP window appears. On the EXPERT SETUP window choose your GPS model. Then choose the com port your GPS is connected to. Now check the box next to the word ON under EXPERT UPLOAD. Then click OK.
  4. [i]Note: If you do not know what your serial com port is, here is a way to find out. Click on START, and then on CONTROL PANEL. In the CONTROL PANEL, scroll down and double click on SYSTEM. Then click on DEVICE MANAGER. In the DEVICE MANAGER, look for PORTS (COM & LPT) and click in the + symbol to the left to expand the category. You should see your serial listed here and the com port it is on will be listed to next to it.
  5. On the Menu bar click on UPLOAD. Click OK on the reminder pop up window. On the SELECT UPLOAD TYPE window check the box next to BASE MAP ONLY. The SELECT BASE MAP FILE window appears. In this window Navigate to the folder on your desktop where the, NA_B101.IMG file is located (you should have already extracted it here earlier if you are following all the steps.) Select the NA_B101.IMG file and click OPEN. The window closes and the UPLOAD FILE window appears. Click on the box next to UPLOAD and the upload process begins automatically. The process may take several minutes. Once it is done, restart your unit and you are on your way.
Since you now have downloaded the latest firmware and your unit is now functioning properly, you might as well update your firmware if it needs it. Follow the instruction found on the page where you downloaded the firmware update for your unit in step one.cool.gif
Happy navigating!biggrin.gif

Webupdater won't detect Garmin unit


The below solution that I found on another site worked for me. Good luck!

Look at the programs you have running in the background. Some of those like printers or PDA interface software will hog the COM1/Serial port. I just looked at my task bar on the bottom right of the screen, and right click and turned off my printer software and a few other things. Then my GPS would link up properly and update with the Garmin Updater. I don't get why all the other forums have complicated explination that only help a small precentage. This solution will help over half of the problems.

Download update problem


Are you trying to update a Nuvi that already has European maps installed or are you trying to install European maps into a Nuvi that does not already have them?

If it's a map update, are you getting the error when you download the update to pc, or when you are trying to install the update to the Nuvi?

When I install US map updates into a streetpilot or Nuvi, it typically ends with a download error but the maps do in fact get updated and the new software versions are shown in the setup menus.

The Garmin rep I spoke with says that is normal.

If you are in the United States, I can get you maps, updates, and even install them for you if you wish.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you're interested.

Finedrive 400 error.


the issue may be compatability, some of the early AV versions do not work with this upgrade, Also, the site I posted these at put new limitations on file sizes and types and I can no longer post these online.

I made a DVD that I sell on ebay (search for finedrive dvd) for basically the cost of labor and materials, it updates the firmware and map data to the last version issued (2007) for this mode. you need a PD, SD card reader and good DVD drive to do the update, instructions are included...
