Updating Edge 705 Firmware
Instead of using the WebUpdater, I want to update my Edge 705, currently on 2.40, with 2.50 (the latest firmware is 2.60, which is reported to have some issues).
Anyway, I have downloaded the update file, Edge605_705_250.gcd from the Garmin site, and it's my understanding that I just have to copy this to somewhere on the Garmin "drive" when it's connected to my PC, and on the next power-on the 705 will perform the update. So far I haven't had any luck with a couple locations that I've copied it to.
Does anyone know this trick for manually applying an update?
