Question about Magellan GPS 315 GPS Receiver
I'm trying to update my GPS 315 firmware from v2.02 to v3.15. The software finds the receiver and connects at the correct baud rate. The receiver screen shows "Software Upload Mode Active" and the software stays at "Creating Link". Eventually the receiver times out and turns off without any update taking place. I'm using a homemade cable that works well with easyGPS and have tried 'Expert' and 'Auto' modes at 4800 and 9600 baud. I've tried XP, WIN2K, and WIN98 with the same results. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
I'm not sure this will help, but per Magellan (see below), the firmware update must be run twice as your firmware is earlier than version 3. I have a GPS 315 with v2.03 and can't find a cable to update mine. My GPS 315 does not appear to have a cable connection either, just a screw port on the back for a carrying strap. Was your homemade cable wireless? How did you make it?
You must follow instructions exactly to avoid corrupting your unit's flash memory.
