|I am having the same problem you had and I am wondering what specifically you modified in the ini file to get it to upload. Could you post your exact steps including how you got your sportrak pro to start the upload.|
Here's what worked on my ST Pro:
First, rename Spor500.hex to zorro209.sre.
Now start MyMeridian.exe, click "okay" for the first "You assume all responsibility...window. This brings up the "MyMeridian" program window. Now close the program. This step generates MyMeridian.ini.
Next, double click on MyMeridian.ini to open it in notepad, and scroll down to the section for [Map330]. A few lines below that is a line that reads: "English=All data". Change that to read: "English=All data is", and then save the file. Close the file and close notepad.
Now run MyMeridian again and it should work. Make your changes, and save, but when it asks you to start Magellan's upload firmware program, click "no".
Now you need to rename "personal.hex" to spor500.hex", then simply follow Magellan's standard instructions for "MAGUP.EXE", which will upload your new modified firmware "spor500.hex" into your SporTrak Pro.
since I don't have the ST Map, I'm not sure if my above steps will work for your unit. Try scrolling down in the "ReadMeMyMerian.txt" file to the troubleshooting section. That's where I found the fix for my ST Pro. You might find some suggestions to try there.
