Try a master reset first

To perform the master reset:

  1. Power the device off
  2. Press and hold your finger on the upper left side of the display
  3. Power the device on while still maintaining pressure on the display
  4. Release the power button once the Rino powers on
  5. Touch Yes on the Do you really want to erase all user data? message

The Rino 610, 650, or 655t is now reset. You will want to leave the device outside with a clear view of the sky for a minimum of 20 minutes to acquire satellite data.

Once complete, try updating the unit again.. It should be working correctly now. If you get stuck or run into any issues, let me know.

Please remember to click and submit a 5 star rating to show I was able to assist you, without a 5 star rating submitted I am unpaid and unaccredited for my time and expertise.

Thank you,
