Excuse me for the late reply. I have reploaded FW 3.40 for Vista/Legend HCX merged with boot.bin from 3.20 in the first post. Noeman seems to be the only place in the Internet having this software :005:....I have also dump of region 5 (BB) from Vista with 3.40 but can't create FW with it. Don't think it matters much. Unfortunately, seems I have lost FW 3.30...Can't find it on my PC. Hopefully Mr. Dot Com soon have an agreement with the US goverment and megaupload is back online...

Here's a copy of FW 3.30 I saved from your OP.
I'm currently using FW 3.40 (that you originally provided) on my eTrex Vista HCx and it works fine (diagnostic screenshot below).
I originally downloaded it from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in post #1 months ago and the .rgn file is 3,251 KB.
The new attached .rgn file is now 3,548 KB
What was added/changed?
I've also attached the old .rgn that you had originally posted so you can compare.
Please advise if I should now use the updated 069401000340_boot320.zip attacted file instead.
