Most updates fall into 2 categories: a) Firmware update. Corrects a problem(s) found in the firmware since the previous version that may provide more reliable operation, additional features, removal of features or other changes the manufacturer wants, and b) Maps update. Updates the installed maps.

In the case of "a" above, many times there is an explanation of the firmware update. Longer battery life, faster time to fix, additional bluetooth cellphone support, etc. It is best to review the list of changes to see if you want to upgrade or not.

In the case for "b", streets change, close and new ones pop up all the time. Using the latest maps will minimize the chance the you'll be sent over a road that either no longer exists, or has been rerouted to somewhere else. A map update may also rely on updated firmware (in "a") or might even automatically update firmware during the process.

Generally, updates almost always solve more problems than they create and add features rather than strip them. Map updates are nice to have - but you may need to balance the need for them with the cost of them. Not performing an update should not make the unit fail to work; unless there is something happening on a much larger scale than just your particular brand / model.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

How update firmware?


Please.
When an electronic device is start acting strange, a software update is the worst thing you can try to solve the problem.

Updates are only allowed if the system is working without an error.
If it is not working correct, you can't be sure it will load the update correct and you never know what happens when the update is started.
For every update there is a condition, the electronic needs to work perfect and the battery / power supply must be capable of delivering enough power during the whole update process.

External drives are so simple, they hardly ever need any peat. If they need one, you can find it on google. And the firm will send mails to any registered user.
With any firmware update, more warnings coe than I can write down here. If you have a problem, look if there is an other way to solve this.

Software update


If the unit works ok I would not just update for the sake of updating--can cause problems and if no need why take the chance---I have seen some where the update causes all new problems.

Try a manual update, and manage yourself. Update only those needed. For instance languages that you don't use or have installed. Also, not so many at a time. Plus, it may show you failed update.

Hi, what kind of keyboard are you using? You may just need to update your keyboard driver, which you can get from the manufacturer's website.
If that doesn't work, you can probably uninstall that Windows 7 update to get rid of the compatibility issue. Some updates have small bugs or cause instability with certain products.

Stopped working while updating


Your device needs now FBUS Flashing (from the backside behind the battery) you mainly need now service equipment to do the job. The more expensive alternative is http://www.odeon.cn/ jaf flasher and the cheaper one it to give it to a service company to repair it with around 15 euros.
Your phone simple needs a software update again.
