Hi, is there a way to manually download the Time Zone Map Update to the device (eg GPSMAP 66s), similar to the firmware updates (download from Garmin website, copy to device, restart, ...)? Thanks! Reason for asking is that I am not using a PC/Mac with Garmin Express and the Time Zone Map Update is not downloading directly to the device via Garmin Connect on iOS.
