Am I doing something wrong?

I press Menu, Right Left Right and nothing happens, is there a particular page I should be in or something? I'm Using a Meridian Gold.

I am not with my unit right now, but if I remember correctly this must be done right after power on.

Actually, you can get into the Hidden Menu anytime while the unit is powered up.

Its actually <Right>, <Left>, <Right>, <Left>

He forgot the last <Left>... :)

I found thru trial and error that the codes are different between the Sportrak Map and Merigreens....

Here's a list that I compiled from the original list: (the first part was submitted by Woodsong, I sigured out the sections for the Sportrak Map and Merigreen)
Also, I think these lists are based on firmware versions, so these may or may not all match up to your units depending on your version. I dont remember what version the ST Map was on when I did this (probably 2.08 or maybe 3.12?)
The Merigreen was found using v4.05, which is the most recent.


The following information was not supplied by Magellan.
It was just found by trial on a Meridian Platinum.
