Sounds like a Meridian too me??? :confused:

Lots of people are complaining of performance issues with v5.40!

Did you reset the GPS (initialise)?
Though I doubt it's going to make a difference....but you never know!

I reckon 5.40 seemed faster on mine, and my mates???

But I went back to an earlier version, because it has issues with DAST topo! :mad:

So, to answer the question, YES!....you can go back!
But back to what? there doesn't appear to be a best version..... I found 5.36 to be good.
Don't use 5.35, as lots of folks have reported very bad performance with accuracy/aquiring sats!
