GARMIN GPS 12 Map Software Upgrade Information
Software Version 2.05


    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 attempts to upload software fail, you may need to return the unit to
    GARMIN for service.


Instructions for uploading the new software to your GPS 12 Map using
Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT:

1.  Download the appropriate self-extracting zip-file for your GPS 12 Map into
    a directory on your hard drive.  (i.e., c:\garmin).

2.  Unzip the files into this directory by running the downloaded executable
    file (.exe).

3.  Connect your GPS 12 Map to a free serial port (Com 1, 2, 3, or 4) on your
	PC with a PC Interface cable.

4.  Turn on your GPS 12 Map and ensure the Interface format is set to "GARMIN."
    You can find this setting in the Main Menu under "Setup."

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 12 Map's display will indicate "Software Loading...."  The
    upload process should take approximately 3-10 minutes to complete.  When
    the upload process is complete, the unit will reset itself and turn on

          from all categories will not be present on all maps.
          This search is performed on the best (most detailed) map for the
          current position.  The search map can be changed from the map at the

          choosing the MENU -> NEAREST TO PTR selection from the map page.
