Thread: Garmin 545s software update.

  1. #1

    Default Garmin 545s software update.

    I have been having problems with my Garmin 545s depth sounder losing signal frequently. (installation/location is correct)
    I found on the Garmin web site a new software update was released last week to help with this amongst other issues.
    I'm hoping this corrects my problem, looking forward to finding out.

    So for anyone else with same unit.

    Default I downloaded the

    440s update on a new 2 gig sd card. Put it in, turned it on and it still won't find it. Any ideas short of calling Garmin?

    Call Garmin...one of the best customer service departments out there in my experience.

    Default Oh yea

    I have talked to them.
    They are one of the better ones.
    I was just thinking someone here might have had the same issue.

    Default Update

    After contacting Garmin they had me turn the unit on THEN put in the card, which is the opposite of the instructions.
    No problems after that, and it supposed to correct the depth seeking problem I was having in deep deep water (didn't want to reaquire the bottom after coming offstep)

    Now all I have to do is calibrate my GFS-10 and I am sweet to go!
