Default Anyone know how to update Northstar M84 with new update

The directions on the Northstar site are pretty bad. I can't tell if they want me to drag the update to the SD card and turn on the M84 or
to open the .exe on the PC and install it on the SD card.
Any help would be great.

thanks all

I just did this update for my M121 so i assume this is the same...it is real easy...Do not download the file...go here instead

http://www.northstarnav.com/en/Downl...re-Update-237/


and it will self install on a SD chip...follow the directions...

When you are ready to flash the M84...make sure you take the map chip out and install the update chip first, before you turn it on...It will self install...

Make sure you use a SD card that is 1 G or less...it will not work if the card is more than 1GB

I spoke to Northstar about the update...they indicated the changes were in the operating system to make some things quicker and now you can have plots in multiple colors...I haven't had the time to play with it yet...Good Luck!
