From LEI,

A hard reset, consists of holding the pages key and power key till the USA map comes up. This will NOT delete the waypoints in the unit.

my mistake, sorry. misunderstanding of terminology I guess.

so, A hard reset, would be for if you sold your unit, and wanted to dump everything, correct?

Thanks for the NOTE:

Its not my unit, but a friends of mine. It wouldnt show the second menu in either screen. It did after the "soft" reset.

There was/is an update online, to 1.7.0, from what 1.6.

I loaded the update to a card for him, and it should take the update, as soon as you put the card in and boot the machine, correct?

I tried the update on two different cards, and still am seeing v 1.6 in the software version.

Not sure why its not taking the update.

Thanks geno.

It should automaticly upload the new version. Make sure the SD card only contains the software upgrade.

And ones its uploads the new version it is not longer on the cards. So your SD card will go back to blank!!!

Central only if you check the box to delete the file after upload. I have one chip that I use just for software upgrades so I say no to deleting that file.

The chip was empty, when I put the update on it. The machine didnt take the update, as it still says 1.6. He'll maybe have to send it in.

reddog,

Try putting the chip in after you power up the locator, the last time I actually had to select it from the menu, browse files.

Before you upload the new files if you have a spare chip back up the way points to the card. I have done several of them for friends and have not had an issue loading up the new software in the units. It does work better if you put the chip in when the unit is on.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
