Default Garmin 7616xsv software update error

I recently attempted to upgrade by 7616xsv from v9.20 to current v15.10 but the GPS Map portion of the upgraded errors out. The GXM52, GMR DOME and Sonar all upgraded successfully (albeit after a call to Garmin support and being walked through a 'forced update'). I spoke with them late Wednesday and the tech said he would look into it further today but felt the number of updates from v9.20 to v15.10 could be the issue. He mentioned the unit may have to be sent in for repair, which I really hope to avoid, it was installed new on the boat in 2015.

I am going to download the update again just in case part of the file got corrupted on the original download, but I'm wondering if anyone else has been through this or has any guidance they can give me. Does anyone know if the past incremental updates are available anywhere, if in fact the jump from v9.20 to v15.10 is too large?

Thanks in advance!

I just did same jump and eventually was successful. My issue was the SD card. After multiple attempts with an old sd card I would get upload error message. Purchased a new 32G card and everything updated. Good luck.

I probably tried 10 times before going to store and buying a new sd- very frustrating but it worked w the new one.

Similar issue on 7612xsv. Multiple tries with error message. Only worked after buying a new SD card.

Many thanks Seadawg and Edge, new SD card was the ticket!!!
Going to let Garmin support know to put it in their troubleshooting notes.
