You will need:

working MMC/SD reader/writer device
attached to your PC and
a formatted MMC/SD card.


Please read carefully before proceeding.
You must RESTORE the defaults on your unit BEFORE you perform any software update and we suggest that you disconnect any advanced accessories from the unit (i.e. Weathersense, Interlink, Cannonlink, etc) before going any further. The exceptions to this would be if you have theMinn Kota i-Pilot Link or the Humminbird 360 Imagingattached. Both of these items need to remain connected to the unit in order to update their software which is done via the units Ethernet system.
How to Restore Defaults: With the unit powered on, Press theMENU button twice to the main menu on the system. Then you press the RIGHT cursor until you get to the SETUP menu tab. Once you have reached the SETUP menu tab, use the DOWN cursor until you reachRESTORE DEFAULTS, you will then press the RIGHT cursor key to restore the defaults. To confirm press the RIGHT cursor again.
To update with an SD Card

On the My Equipment page you will see an image of your product, a Description which includes Model name, Serial # and Purchase date. Available Downloads, which typically includes: HumminbirdPC and the software for your model. In the unlikely event that your product image or model number, does not match the product you have registered, immediately contact us and do not proceed until we have resolved this issue for you. HumminbirdPC is a program which can be downloaded to your computer to help you manage your waypoints and routes, rename them or convert waypoints from another brand locator.
Click on the Download which contains the Model name of the unit you wish to update.
We highly recommend that you read these instructions thoroughly before you continue this process.
Never attempt to Open these files, these files are only to be Saved.
You will need to select Save this file to the SD Card. (The SD card may be listed on your Computer as a Removable Disk, Removable Storage Drive or SD). Do not modify the name of the file, then click on SAVE.
After the Download Complete dialog box appears - click CLOSE
Remove the SD Card from the card reader.
POWER ON YOUR UNIT, allow the unit to go through the complete start upBEFORE pressing any buttons or selecting any menu options. AFTER the unit has completed the loading process and you have clicked through the Warnings and Information screens, place the SD card inyour Humminbird unit.
You will get a message on the unit saying SOFTWARE NUMBER “123” is higher than your current “120” software do you want to update?, Press the Right Cursor to Confirm.
Another message will then appear saying do you want to ABORT, press the Left Cursor to NO at this time and the software update will begin. DO NOT POWER OFF THE UNIT DURING THIS TIME. If you lose power to the unit during the software upgrade process, it is very likely that the unit will need to be returned to the factory for updating. Once the update is complete the unit will restart and say current SOFTWARE NUMBER “123” installed, no update required. It is now safe to remove the SD Card, and power off the unit.
Once you have updated the software on the unit, we suggest that you add back your advanced accessories. If you have an Interlink, we suggest that you first connect to Unit 1, power on the unit and allow it to update the software on your Interlink. After this you may reconnect the remaining advanced accessories.
