  • Garmin Fenix 2 "Software missing" solution.

    So just in case anyone else encounters this problem, here is everything required to get it working.

    Customer tried to update firmware while battery was faulty, ended up with dead unresponsive device.
    After battery was charged, watch displayed "Software missing".
    Web updater was detecting it fine, but reported "the update file is corrupted".

    So, here is Garmin "Updater.exe" , "Fenix 2" 4.50 rgn file, attached.
    Just connect device (if required charge battery first), drag the rgn file over updater.exe, select usb and enjoy.
