Becker 7914 freezes

I have a Becker 7914 Traffic Assist GPS unit that freezes on the Becker logo screen before it gets to the main menu. The unit also isn't recognised when connected to a PC. I've read that for many Becker units you can solve this problem by re-installing the software to the flash memory via the SD card which is one method recommended by Becker on their website for updating the unit. However for the 7914 there are no update files available on the website, although at least most of the original software files are on the CD supplied with the unit. Can you advise how I can re-install the software from the SD card? The critical point is what file does the Becker run from the SD card (many units seem to run an autorun.exe file) and where can I obtain this file? Also what directories should the file be in on the SD card.
If the problem can't be solved this way, can I solve it using a JTAG cable? I've located six pins close to the CPU (test points 1,2,3,5,6 and 7) which look promising, but are you able to advise which connection is which (TDI, TDO,TCK etc).

Many thanks

SOURCE: where can I get the latest update or downloads for GPS Pioneer avic-s1

Yes I called the Canad number 1-877-283-5901 and they asked for 150 $ for this upgrade. Now a day, one can buy a cheaper new GPS in that amount. I am not going for this option.

the IPOD USB is attached to the USB port near the IPOD connector. If you follow that back you have to disconnect the ipod cable from the USB port then you can use the flash drive in that port. it is an either or situation.
