the drivesmart is showing gibberish on the screen so am trying to reinstall the unit software. i have downloaded the usb drivers and DS loader software but when i try connect to the DS Loader program i keep getting the following error:

Error Connecting To Target

And the following in the message box:

Connection to COM4 at 115200 bauds ... OK
Open File C:\temp\ukhan_1.2.2.bin ... OK
Connection to ERA ... FAILED!!

I get the same when i try anything like copying logs etc. Can you give me any tips?

pps - loading the firmware has worked via the 'private' version of the ds loader

however, it's not fixed the gibberish...

ok, an update:

ds now no longer says 'drive smart activated' when it powers up and it won't get a satellite fix... well, the green 'lock' led is flashing all the time...

is there an easy way to totally reset this thing?
