I must admit that this site has more info then pb themselfs.
I got a gps400 last week and found the device to be running quite slow. Not just the menu interface but the fact that in the house it wouldnt find any satalites and it'd take upto 10mins to lock onto any satalites outside.
One of my work mates said for me to update the firmware so i called onto pb's website downloaded the 1.02 firmware for destinator ver 5.1. I have followed all the instructions provided but cannot get the thing to run the firmware upgrade.
I know there has been previous posts to do with getting the bootloader to work. For some reason i've been trying for the last 4 hours and still no luck. This is what happens:
I press the power button/bottom left direction button and hit reset and all it seems to do i show the pb logo screen>loading>asks to input time zone etc>tells me i have no maps loaded!
Its getting annoying now, please help :-(
p.s i have flashed/updated firmware/custom firmaware on lots of different devices but this vulcan death grip on the gps400 takes the biscuit! I've gotta be doing something wrong!
Can I know who to refer to with regards this firmware? I need to know who is he to ask him if it would be possible to add a string in which after a hard reset and before booting, a given file from the mmc is loaded, just as on Mio Pocket navigators, so that I can add my personal modifies without changing original software. Let me know about this matter, I will be glad to test it personally and support.
Many thanks and my apreciations for your works; many times I found useful informations here.
hello I just tried the update on my GPS but no luck it got stuck loading the new FW so I left on the side to allow time for any load the catch is that taking up the GPS it had no battery and has no way to turn it back on then there is a sintillement black screen no sound no picture but it is identified as a USB device not recognized on the computer you know a solution thank you in advance but if with my 2 years of delay I am not optimistic finally have an answer brief help an elderly gentleman of 54 years before it kills the old woman for breaking the GPS
