correct procedure for loading software update to boat?

Recommended Posts

So I have updates on separate USB sticks for the Viper and the Touch Screen. What is the correct procedure for downloading each to the the boat? I can see the the USB port for the Viper/Medallion Box under dash and the one coming from the touch screen. I have 2014 VTX with 350.

I searched the threads and can't seem to find this even though I thought I had read it before. Is it as simple as loading the stick and going to "update software" in set up screen? Do I need to have the engine start code entered? When do I put the stick in? Does it matter? Thanks.

Granted mine is a '10, but when I did mine I had to have the key in the "run" position for power. I went to the "update" section and selected "update", plugged in the stick per the instructions and followed the on screen directions, which were few if not just a one button push action. I went back in to check the version to confirm the update and viola, it was done. For those wanting to know I beleive V23 is the latest and greatest for that my MY with the 350.

I used a mac to drop the .mem files onto to the stick from my dealer's email. Maybe that the issue. But the My Touch one worked fine. Thanks. I'll try a windows machine.

FYI all. You MUST unzip/ extract the compressed files from Malibu on a Windows machine then put them on the USB stick. Once I did that it worked.
