  • Run the WebUpdater application and select your device from the drop down menu
  • Follow the prompts to keep your Montana updated



Garmin Express

Firmware updates, map updates, device backups and other optional software improvements for your Garmin Montana can all be managed with the Garmin Express application. Versions for both PC and Mac are available in
Software.
  • Connect your Garmin Montana GPSr via USB and enter Mass Storage Mode
  • Start the Garmin Express application and choose your device from the menu
  • Select desired updates and follow the prompts to complete installation



myDashboard

Use the myDashboard web application with your Montana GPSr connected via USB to quickly check for available updates. Using the WebUpdater application to install any available updates is recommended.
  • Connect your Garmin Montana GPSr via USB and enter Mass Storage Mode
  • Visit Garmin myDashboard and select your device from the drop down menu
  • Any available updates detected will be displayed
  • Use WebUpdater application to install available updates



GCD Updates

Recent firmware updates are sometimes available from Garmin using these URLs:
Substitute xyz with the desired three digit firmware version. For example, to download firmware version 3.80, replace xyz with 380.

GCD Update Procedure

  • Use the links in Firmware History to download the zipped file for the version you desire
  • Unzip the downloaded archive and extract the gcd file
  • Rename the gcd file to gupdate.gcd
  • Connect the Montana to your computer and enter USB Mass Storage Mode
  • Copy the gupdate.gcd file to [Montana]\Garmin\gupdate.gcd
  • Disconnect and reboot the Montana
  • Once the update is completed, the GPSr will delete the gupdate.gcd file



EXE Updates

Some firmware updates (usually betas) are released as a windows executable containing a compressed gupdate.gcd file and an installer program. Regardless of OS, the .exe can be opened with an archive tool and the gupdate.gcd file can be extracted for manual updating as outlines above under GCD Update Procedure.

EXE Update Procedure

  • Use the links in Firmware History to download the .exe file for the version you need
  • Run the downloaded executable and follow the instructions provided



RGN Firmware Install

Should you ever find yourself with a Montana GPSr that refuses to complete the boot process and all other options have failed to restore the unit to its former glory, a forced RGN Firmware Installation may be your only hope.
