Installation Instructions

  1. Connect your Forerunner 245 Music to your computer using the USB cable.
  2. Download and unzip Forerunner245M_429Beta.zip. Place the GUPDATE.GCD file in the \GARMIN folder of your device's internal storage drive.
  3. Disconnect your device from the computer, approve the update on the watch, and wait for the update to finish.
  4. Reconnect your Forerunner 245 Music to your computer using the USB cable.
  5. From the RemoteSW folder in the unzipped download, copy the 006B310708.GCD file into the \GARMIN\REMOTESW folder on your device.
  6. Again, disconnect your device from the computer, approve the update on the watch, and wait for the update to finish.
  7. If you would like to revert to the last public release software, place the GUPDATE-420.GCD file in the \GARMIN folder. Rename GUPDATE-420.GCD to GUPDATE.GCD before disconnecting your device.

After the watch reboots and the setup wizard is complete, reconnect and place the 006B310700_290.GCD file from RemoteSW\Downgrades into the \GARMIN\REMOTESW folder on your device. Rename the file to 006B310700.GCD, disconnect and install.
