Unable to perform hard reset on Montana 600

Postby fisheye888 » Tue Jun 13, 2017 6:24 pm

I recently updated my Malfree map and use Basecamp to upload the base map to my Montana. The unit is now rendered non-operational and I cannot perform a hard reset as the screen turns off immediately upon turning on. Anyone can advise me what I should do. Thanks

remember to remove the SD card before reset

Restoring the factory default settings
Not functioning properly

To perform the master reset:

2.Press and hold finger on upper left side of display (can be done in portrait or landscape mode)
3.Power on device
4.Continue holding until the Do you really want to erase all user data? message appears
5.Release finger from upper left side of display
6.Touch Erase

Allow device up to 20 minutes to acquire satellite data with a clear view of sky
The Montana is now reset and ready for use.
