Hi Pete
I reviewed your reply and went to the golfbuddy website.
The only update there was from 2014. This unit was working fine from Feb thru Apr 2016.
When we turned the unit on this week it said it needed an update.
We plugged the unit into a computer and nothing has worked so far.
Any further assistance would be appreciated.
Thank you

If no updates are showing then the device will need to be returned to the place or purchase or direct to GolfBuddy to have the software reinstalled on it.
