Nothing on front of satnav. On under edge series of numbers as so - 10R-023994 FCC ID 1PH-01278 IC1792A-01278 P17 M1702. Hope this helps.

Sijad H. :

Connect your device to your computer and then turn it on.

JACUSTOMER-kmhxtioh- :

ok

Sijad H. :

Once it is connected, open My computer/Computer and double click the Garmin drive. Then look for a folder labeled RemoteSW. IF you do not see it, you may need to click a Garmin folder and then it should show up. Delete all files inside the RemoteSW folder. Then unplug your device and allow it to restart and it should boot up to the main screen again.
