The following lists of changes are based on information provided by GARMIN. Changes or improvements which we consider important or especially useful are shown highlighted.

To view the current firmware version, complete the following steps:

  1. Turn on the GPS.
  2. Switch to the tools page by touching the tool symbol ("Tools") near the bottom right corner of the main menu.
  3. Touch "Settings".
  4. Touch "System".
  5. Touch "About"
  6. The system will display the firmware version at the very top ("Software Version"), the unit ID on the second line, followed by various copyright information.
  7. Touch "Back" to return to the previous page.

Each upgrade replaces the complete firmware in the GPS, which means you need to install only the version you wish to apply. There is no need to install any previous versions.

Note: We suggest to use WebUpdater to update the firmware, language files and other optional software of your GPS. However - like the firmware upgrades available below - WebUpdater does not update any maps.
