    Hi Neil.... Unfortunately... not yet. It's on my list to go thru that big update package.

    I'll report when I do and hopefully I can identify something helpful.

    Regards.

    Ok, when you find your firmware just rar or zip it and upload it to 1fichier.com, bin.ge or zippyshare.com and i'll have a look at it.

    Garmin somehow loaded the Charts originally internally to the unit, so was it done whiel the unit was still disassembled at the factory, or is there some hidden way to gain access to the charts and firmware in the unit?

    On the automotive units, you can push the screen in certain areas to gain access to hidden menus.

    I am guessing it can be done on the newer Garmin marine units too. Once accessed, I suspect you an make the units load new charts from the SD card.

    Also, someone on this forum asked me for a copy of the firmware files, but I don't know how to access them to copy.

    I know this forum is more about automotive units, but I also know that there are several members who have marine units.

    Does anyone have any idea how to get to the internal memory of the new "buttonless" units?

    Thanks !

    this is not answer... but i need marine who test my way i need only sd-serial and map info
