GARMIN Forerunner Software Upgrade Information


    If this software is uploaded to a GPS unit other than the product for
    which it is designed, you will not be able to operate that unit.

    If the upload software fails, verify that you have good batteries installed
    and try again.  If repeated upload attempts fail, you may need to return
    the unit to GARMIN for service.


Instructions for uploading the new software to your Forerunner using Microsoft
Windows 95/98/NT:

1.  Download the appropriate self-extracting archive file for your Forerunner 
    onto your hard drive.

2.  Unzip the files in the archive by running the downloaded executable file.

3.  Connect your Forerunner to a free serial port (Com 1, 2, 3, or 4) on your PC 
    with a PC interface cable.

4.  Turn on your Forerunner.

5.  Change to the directory in which you unzipped the files, (i.e., C:\GARMIN),
    and run the update program, updater.exe.  Select the appropriate serial
    port and click "OK" to begin the software upload.
    During the upload, the Forerunner's display will indicate "SOFTWARE LOADING..."
    The upload process should take 5-10 minutes to complete. When the upload
    is completed, the Forerunner will reset itself and turn on normally.
