Not such a happy ending as it turns out.

GPS updated, all works fine, sent DM's card back in the post - and it looks like some light fingered s**t at the Post Office has helped themselves to it - delivering DM an empty envelope.


It's just a bit crap when you have to send stuff registered post just to stop the Post Office themselves from nicking your stuff...

Note to self - NEVER send anything more valuable than a greetings card via the Post Office ever again.

Garmin GPSmap 292 Update Issue

Having issues with my plotter, wont find satellites. Have had several emails with Garmin tech support and they have posted out a data card with V3.40 s/w on it, I'm currently on V2.90. Plugged card into unit and selected update software option. The unit starts the process saying its "scanning for marine devices" and progress bar increases from 0 to about 20%. It then jumps to 100% and says s/w will be updated in 5 seconds. The unit then goes to the "welcome" screen and stays there for >5mins.
My question is, once the s/w has been read from the card should the unit reboot within a reasonable length of time? Does it need to see satellites to finish the install? Any comments appreciated. Dave

just leave it until it goes back to behaving after the 100% bit - have done mine and it took a good while to install...( imagine its a really really really really really slow PC)
