    Any device transmitting RF will need to comply with local frequency regulations ,as your device has a GPS it will most probably be GEO locked to the country of purchase.

    Spoiler: Software implies it is encrypted
    Firmware version as specified in GCD file: 3.70 for Unknown device (HWID 3116).

    Thanks Garman for your help.

    It is outside the country of purchase and looks like I've just bought an expensive paperweight. Would this unit have encrypted firmware or could the region lock be fixed like a garmin Alplha can be, if it was compliant from an RF perspective?


    Does anyone have any previous versions of the firmware for this unit?
