Garmin updating bluetooth firmware garmin nuvi lava life dating lnumber
When the unit came back up again the following error came up on the screen: "system software missing" The Nuvi would not boot! HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display.
I contacted the local Garmin support rep and I was given the following sequence to recover from this condition: 1. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears.
I could not work out a way to recover from this as the upgrade failed (not fully complete) and the only option was to reset the unit via the power button.
I emailed Garmin about this and just received this response: Thank you for contacting Garmin International.
Have you recently connected your nuvi to the computer and updated the firmware?
There was a progress bar and after about 2 minutes it was done. I assumed that my device was just completing the BT update cycle.
Can't say I've seen this happening after an extended time from when my device was booted up.

All of this and they already have an update function built into the unit (Webupdater).
