Firmware downloads
« on: June 04, 2013, 01:55:05 AM »
Hi all

I updated my 1198 from v6.42 to v6.640 and my 998 from 6.42 to 6.680

I cant get image quality anywhere near what I had, so I am going to go back to 6.49

I went to the DL section and tried to DL 6.49 in the 1198 section but it stops everytime after about 11mb. It says on the page the file size is 27mb I believe.

Any Idea why its not finishing the DL?

Thanks in advance...

I would first delete any previous downloads on your SD card.
If it still does not work, it may be a corrupted download file.

(If you're not already)....You might try downloading to your PC first and then upload it to the SD card....

I would also suggest fully formatting the card...

einsteins:
If you email Greg, he might be able to send you
a new copy of the download.

I just tried downloading it to my PC and it downloaded fine.  The file size is the same as the file size I have for this sane software update (28,091KB).

Send me a direct e-mail and I will see if TransferBigFiles.com will be able to get it to you.

Greg got me hooked up with an earlier version of the firmware that I requested.

I sent him the software through TransferBigFiles.com Rickie.
There have been a few reports that the downloads from this web site stopped before completion.  Has anyone else had any problems or even tried them?

 I just downloaded 6.49 about a week ago to roll the 898 back. The GPS puck on the boat is an older style than the portable unit I rigged up. and the download worked fine for me anywayz.
