In simple explaination.....it ask you to backup the gpx file in your garmin folder in the main memory, then do a hard reset and paste back the gpx file to the main memoory, that's all.... :thumbsup:

To do the hard reset, press on hold the right bottom screen, then power on, then it show the screen asking you whether to do the hard reset....then follow through.... :-({|=
