Step 2

Turn off your Omnitech GPS device and remove your SD card from the side of your Omnitech GPS system. Press the release button on the SD card drive and pull the SD card out of the slot.


Step 3

Ask the Staples associate to put in an updated SD card into the SD card port. Once the card has been inserted, turn on the device. The power button is located on the top of the GPS system. The Omnitech GPS device update will begin automatically once the system has been turned on. Once the display screen reads "Update Successful," use a paper clip to push the reset button located on the back of the device. It looks like a tiny pinhole. The device will power down and reset once the reset button has been pushed.
