Hello and Welcome - My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise..The previous expert has opted out as he said / can be seen above - so we can carry on / I can help from here - Bear in mind please that I think we are in different time zones so replies ( from us both may involve some delays)Before I progress with this - two things I need to ask... first, What does happen when the HOME button is pressed?Second - you said earlier that you cannot press / operate the Update function... what exactly happens there - ie - is the button "functioning" - or is it greyed out ?Third - is the unit you are fitting new - or second hand?If you can let me know on these items as above - then we can carry on from there - Kind Rgds, MIKE.
