GARMIN GPS60 Software Upgrade Information
Beta Software Version 2.30


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

    If multiple attempts to update the software fail, you may need to 
    return the unit to GARMIN for service.

    Reverting to previous software revisions will clear all user data.


Instructions for uploading the new software to your GPS60 using 
Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, or Windows XP:

1)	It is recommended that you disable screen savers or other programs running
	on your PC while you go through the update process. Disruptions to the
	update process may render your GPS inoperable. If the transfer is
	interrupted, turn off the GPS and then turn it back on. Reboot your PC, go
	to step #9 and attempt the download again. GARMIN is not responsible for
	failed downloads of operating software to the GPS and factory resetting the
	GPS unit will fall under our Flat Rate Repair Policy. 

2)	Click on "Download" and choose to save the file to your computer. 

3)	Choose a location where you can easily locate the file by saving it to a
	location such as the "My Documents" folder or to "C:\". 

4)	Once the download is complete, go to the location where you saved the file. 

5)	Locate the downloaded file and double-click on it. This will launch the
	Win-Zip Self Extractor. This program compresses the data to allow for a
	faster download of the needed files. 

6)	A program window will appear asking you where to "Un-zip" the files. This is
	by default C:\Garmin. You can change this location if you like. Be sure to
	note where the un-zipped files are going to allow you to find them! 

7)	Click on the button labeled "Un-zip". 

8)	Once the un-zip process is complete, click on the "Close" button to exit the
	Win-Zip Self Extractor. 

9)	Connect your GPS to your computer using a GARMIN PC Interface cable to an
	open USB port. Turn the GPS on. 

10)	If your computer asks for a driver, please see the software and installation
	instructions that came with your device, or download and install the USB driver
	from Garmin's website at 

11)	If your GPS supports configuration of the USB format, verify that the USB Format
	is set to GARMIN (refer to your owner's manual for instructions). 

12)	Open the C:\Garmin folder (or other folder where you un-zipped the files), locate
	the file named 'Updater' and double click on it. 

13)	You should see the name of your GPS device next to the 'USB Device' option on the
	Updater program window. Select the 'USB Device' option, then click on 'OK' on the
	Updater program window to start the data transfer.
