I have attempted updating firmware and maps on two friends 2008 Goldwings. I have a 2010. We were unsucessful both times. I believe all instruction here is valid but did notice the last time that for just an instant the screen on the Goldwing GPS displayed "unable to read CF Card". We were using a 4 gig card and a faster speed. We had obtained the smallest and slowest we could locate. It appears we will have to order a 2 gig card online and try again. Can anyone verify this being a problem? We did not want to take a chance on corrupting the original card. I did see that someone else had the unable to read card issue but did not see a resolution to it.
