CN NA 2021.10 Update

Post by carolinarider09 »

Updated my Zumo 550 to CN NA 2021.10 using the "cloning" process.

I did have an issue when I tired to rename the map files. Turns out, the card I was using was the card I used for the update before last so it already had those three files named in the Garmin directory.

Simply deleted those files (easily identified by their dates) and renamed the new files.

Started the 550 up and checked the maps. Map version shown was 2021.10.

No problem. Questions are good.

See Post #13 here.

I thought I also posted it here but could not find it quickly.

The "cloning" process copies the internal memory of the Zumo 550 to a freshly formatted SD card. Then the garmin mapping program thinks the SD card is the Zumo 550 and you can load the map. Then you have to make some changes to the map files (change the names) and then put the card back in the Zumo and it will see the maps.
