What procedure is a "Cold Booting"?

Do you also get a freeze and a message saying "Indexing Data Base ##%"?

Ok, all I can recommend is with the unit off plug it into the computer then turn it on, when it asks, tap 'Connect to PC'.
It should give you access to the unit without booting up.
If it does, open up the Media folder, then the Images folder and then Geocaches, then delete all the images in the Media/Images/Geocaches folder.

That may fix the Image checksum error.

Then while you are in the unit, open USR folder and delete the UGDS.BIN file.
When and if it reboots it will generate a new UGDS.BIN file.
The previous firmware sometimes would corrupt the BIN file.

Then unplug it and see if it boots up.
I just did all that with mine and it booted up without the Media/Images/Geocaches file and when I reloaded a geocache file everything was fine.

I really don't know if this will cure your problem but it's worth a try and shouldn't cause any other trouble.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Just received an iBoot failure message on my out of warranty 710.

Apparently my new firmware update caused a problem. The message also states that the image Checksum has an error.

Cold Booting did not work.

Any help would be appreciate.
