My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

If the device will not start up correctly after attempting to update the firmware, then the firmware on the device has likely gotten corrupted.

You can try updating again, however if that doesn't work then the device will need to be returned to Garmin for repair.

Unfortunately my device can not be updates again. And im not gonna return the device to Garmin while de reparation costs are way to expensive for A 5 year old device. Do you have other suggestions?
Expert:  Pete replied 11 months ago.

Given the age of the device, the best course of action would be to replace it.
