Posted by deleteirousone on Jan. 16 2004,2:22 amIs there going to be a new version of MyMeridian for more recent firmware?
I have a brand new Meridian Platinum with firmware 5.12 and would like to put my mark on it (or in it). I have tried the troubleshooting ideas listed in the readme and things suggestions given on this board to no avail.
Posted by PC Medic on Jan. 16 2004,8:45 amYes, we will be releasing a new version.
I can not give an exact date as yet due to the fact that Georockers (the author) was injured in an accedent and is just now getting back on his feet.
While this is not a priority with some of other site improvements planned, he does not expect it to be long as it is a minor fix that is needed.
Posted by rontop on Jan. 17 2004,2:11 pmI got around the problems for my SporTrak Map with 5.00 by changing the search string. Try something like "data is provided". I actually used "l data" (that is a single lower case "L" in front of the "data" because of the way the string was broken up in the firmware file. It still doesn't look pretty, but I was able to change the screen.

Yes, there will be a new version of MyMeridian.
It took a little bit longer to (sort of) get back on my feet...
I just checked the Magellan site... it looks like there are 17 different Magellan firmware/models to support...
Thanks for your patience
Posted by TEAM 360 on Mar. 08 2004,9:27 amAre you using MapSend TOPO? There is another way to do it:
Upgrading the "Copyright" screen
Some versions of Mapsend have a “Woodall’s” copyright screen that appears during power on. To change the copyright screen, go to the Mapsend program directory, navigate to the ‘MAP’ subdirectory and look for the Export.cfg file. Open it in Notepad and look for the lines:
To keep these old lines but not show them place a semicolon before the number, and add the new lines. For example:
3=Nowhere, NY 12345
Remember, the lines with the semi-colon don't count and don't show up anywhere.
Bonus: the lines will print in numerical order (for whatever that's worth).
Save the file and start up Topo or S&D, mark your regions, save to disk and move to the memory card and start up your Magellan Meridian and you should see the new screen just before the "Lawyer" screen. Unlike the “Lawyer” screen modification, this one is simple and does not involve manipulating the firmware. It is 100% safe.
Note: You cannot have blank lines or lines filled with spaces. I've had as many as 8 lines. More than that just won't show up on the Magellan's Screen. With 8 lines you should be able to place some advertising for Pepsi or Coca-Cola, except for the darn "Database Copyright Notices" heading.
Thanks to Fred Merchant for that information.

Is there an update to this thread?
I have a new MeriPlat and would like to change the Lawyer Screen on Firmware version 5.35.
