Software Updates

Post by twatson » Tue Jul 24, 2012 5:47 am

I bought a 2011 Phoenix and on it is a 998c SI and a 998c. Both have version 4.88.0 software and I'm trying to update the software. I have downloaded the updated software on a PNY 2 GB card. I insert the card in the units, and when I power them up, it acts as though there is not a card in the unit. I do know there is not an issue with the card slots. Is it the type of card that I'm using? What type of card is recommended? I am well versed in this type of computer usage, but clueless on the depth finder. Thanks for your help.

Try doing a "quick format" of the SD card and then copy the update over to it again. That's what I had to do the first time I did a SW update. I had the same issue as you. Now I always format the card first before doing an update.

PNY SD cards

I have several brands of SD cards for cameras and some including the PNY brands don't work sometimes in the Humminbird units.
I have never have an issue with the SanDisk brand.
I agree about formatting the cards before loading data.

I would use the Full Format option though.
