iWAY 350C Update Version 1.5.0


SD 2.0 memory cards will not work with the iWAY 350C. This includes all SD memory cards over 4GB in size, most 4GB, and some 2GB memory cards.

This is NOT an update of the Navteq mapping data.  Mapping updates are no longer available.

Notes: This update will clear your Recent Find list and restore the Overlay Data to the default settings.

You must have at least 240MB of free disk space on your SD/MMC memory card. This will require at least a 512MB memory card.

Mac OS X users may need to reapply the execute permissions to the stand-alone installer after it has finished downloading. To reapply the execute permissions, open a Terminal window, and type the following command (this assumes you downloaded the file to your desktop):
chmod +x desktop/iWAY350C_150.command

Prerequisite: Java must be installed on your computer for the installers to operate. If you do not already have a Java JRE or JDK installed, please visit the Java website.
