    Default US Astro 320 converted to EU and Bark Detection mode?

    Hello

    I have a Garmin Astro 320 US and want to change to Nordic , i have been told to change NV memory rgn 41 and 34 , but i have a friend thats have a Nordic , i wonder how to read out the firmware , i read the topic about Astro 220 , but it seems diffrent here , what program can i use and how to do,

    And can this one be added in nordic astro 320 with dc 50 Bark Detection mode, or is it a hardware they have removed

    With region 41 you can't change your device to nordic, becouse in this region is only settings.
    So if your friend have set voice to germany and you to english, after flash region 41 you will have german voice, if some settings missing in your FW but is present in friend device you can brick your device.

    Device bricked in this way can't be repaired, so if you brick your device you can trow it in trash.

    p.s.
    I don't know who tell you this, but ask him if he try this and if after flash, device still work.

    @ Loly

    Yes, works. Both regions (41 and 34) from EU Astro (in dodde case Nordics) should be uploaded to the US and voala. In fact it doesn't matter from which EU Astro. All Astro 320 have same hardware and same firmware. They are just receivers. Just they should be set on which frequencies to receive. (changing 34 and 41) Unfortunatelly, the id is from the copied. Coudn't be changed. Or I coudnt. 34 in Astros 320 is also crypted. But both regions together should be changed. The guy also has to make back up of the orginal rgns but I didn;t had time to explain. Simple and easy. 2 minutes max + an SD card. Garmin are liars...

    P.P: Regarding the Bark detection I don't know. In EU software is limited. Seems it is limited in the FW of the DCs only. I don't know. Experts should say.

    Hi ddabcd277,

    very interesting what u state - I've looking for the other way round - having an EU device but need to change to US version (all my collars are US, so they use other freq than EU :-)
    Any halp and advice is highly welcomed how to convert my ASTRO 220 (uups forget to mention it's a 220 and not a 320) from EU to US version.

    Thanks in advance !!!!

    For read region you don't need pre boot only correct file on SD and then when you turn on device scan will complet.
    Read tutorial thread how to do file for scan region.
