    Question Can't get into preboot on 2497 :(

    Hi Folks,

    I tried to get into preboot mode as suggested and failed.
    All I always get is a calibration screen.

    What I am doing there:
    1.press-hold upper-left corner of the screen
    2. holding corner press -hold power button
    3. I see garmin logo appeared om the screen and message "loading..." on top of it
    4. I release the power button but still touch the corner
    5. Message "loading..." is blinking there for a while then I get into calibration white screen with cross and point "tap here"

    Could you please advise me what I am doing wrong?

    You need rgn file and open updater.exe where you will see that nuvi is in pre boot.
