The 6.5.8 operating system update package resolves the following issues:

  2.  USB data transfer on some Microsoft® Windows® 7 computers. Attempts to connect the GeoExplorer handheld to a Windows 7 computer would sometimes result in a failed Microsoft ActiveSync® connection.
  3. Negative storage memory reported by file system. A negative value for the amount of available disk storage after multiple file uploads and downloads is no longer reported in error.
  4. Unable to connect to a brand new Windows 7 machine. USB connections to some desktop computers with Windows 7 installed could not be established at the first attempt.

  1. Faster file system performance when appending data to the end of files.
  2. Enhanced user interface information on the Home screen when installing GNSS firmware updates.
