GARMIN cfQue 1620 Firmware Upgrades

Firmware: V2.90 - V2.80 - V2.70 - V2.60 - V2.40

The following lists of changes are based on information provided by GARMIN. Changes or improvements which we consider important or especially useful are shown highlighted.

To view the current firmware version, complete the following steps:

  1. Start the program Garmin Que on the PDA.
  2. Click on "Menu".
  3. Click on "About Garmin Que". The current firmware version will be displayed on the screen.
  4. Click on "ok" to close the window.

The current firmware version will also be displayed when you start the program if it is not already loaded into memory.

Each upgrade replaces the complete firmware in the GPS, which means you need to install only the version you wish to apply. There is no need to install any previous versions.
