Wait a minute, I thought you had to switch to recreational profile before doing a master reset so it would not overwrite whatever custom profile you were in before the reset and force you to restore yours from backup. Or has this gone away with the later firmware?

Version 4.9 fixed that issue. An update will no longer write over your Custom Profile even if it is the first one in the list. But, I still switch to Rec before Master Reseting and Updating - "just in case".

Last week I updated to 5.0 and then did a little ride down to Vancouver, WA. I came back, plugged my Montana into the computer and fired up BC to examine the track for errant waypoints (yes it had some). At some point the unit reset itself (I didn't consciously do a reset of any kind), and my track was erased and my personal settings went away (those I later found were still saved and was able to restore them).

Since neither of us really understand what you did to your Montana, why not try it again - following my "Update Procedure" - below. Then go ride and let us know exactly what your Montana did or didn't do.
  1. -Place your Montana in Recreation Profile and Power Off.
  2. -Remove your SD card.
  3. -Then back up your Montana\Garmin Profile and GPX folders, at a minimum.
  4. -Now, do a Master Reset on the Montana but power it off at the first setup screen (Language selection).
  5. -Install the update using WebUpdater.
  6. -After the update, reboot and then run through the setup.
  7. -Now, select your personal Profile which should bring back all of your settings.
  8. -Shutdown the Montana and replace your SD Card.
  9. -Power On the Montana.

Dan, Thanks for the help. It's done (and I didn't even cross my fingers! ;-) ). I would add that at step 6 I chose to re-install the update which still shows 5.00 as the version.

It'll be a few days before I can get out on a ride. But I'll report back.

It works well for me.

So there, Rocky TFS. Be cynical.

AMPS and mount not charging or powering

Installed AMPS mount and 650t. I cut the cable down and wired an SAE connector to it so I can move from bike to bike. I have 14v at on of the pins on bottom of mount. But the GPS is not powering or charging. Upper right corner still shows battery and I left it on for a while and battery level was going down. WTF? Help please!

Sounds like you have the connections wrong.

This may help: When you hook up your red and black cables FROM the Rugged Mount to a molded plug, you should make sure the RED is connected to the MALE power plug, and the Black should be to the FEMALE power plug. This is so that polarity will be right when you hook up to your Battery Tender cable, if you have one on the bike.

The Battery Tender cable must be hooked up so that the MALE connector is Ground/Black/- and the FEMALE connector is Live/Positive/+. This ensures that the live connector can not touch a grounded part of the bike because it is recessed (female). If your Battery Tender cable has a built in fuse (and it really should) then you can leave off the fuse which is on the Rugged Mount cable. If you don't know if there's a fuse on your Tender cable, best to play it safe and splice in the one on the mount cable after you snip the cable off short.

Check here for Rugged Mount info.

Thank you!

You are a genius! I am using a power outlet plug with SAE on other end with red and black wires. Who would have thought that the black wire goes to red and red goes to black. What the hell?
Again thank you!

Is it possible to create a route from a track on the Montana unit like you can on the Zumo 660?
Trying to get my google map created track to be a route with road prompts like this:
