They made it easy. All you had to do to get to the update was to press a BIG RED button. Did so. Was slightly disappointed that the ABOVE instructions weren’t there! They are included in the ZIP file you download. Hence, why I published them here. I did a quick Google and got the gist of what I needed to do.
I had skipped v1.2. I had never done a firmware update on a Canon. Knew I would have to bit the bullet some day. So, decided to give it a try.
I knew I would need a formatted SD card and a fully-charged battery. Got that taken care of.
The process was very straightforward, smooth and quick.
I was all done in less than 10-minutes. No problems. Worked, to my relief, first time.
The new firmware does not appear to have clobbered the camera. That is good news too. So, so far, so good.
I am happy with quality & resolution.
The ZOOM Min. & Max.
The ‘Tamron’ all-in-one zoom 28-300mm, f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD works just fine — good autofocus (AF) and all — with a ‘Canon EOS RP‘ full-frame, mirrorless with the standard ‘Canon’ EF-EOS R Mount Adapter (with the Control Ring).
No firmware updates. Straight out of the box.
I have firmware 1.1 on my Canon EOS RP and I use the Mount Adapter with the Control Ring.
Everything worked, first time. I was DELIGHTED.
After posting in multiple forums I could only get one person to confirm that this would work.
The Tamron website does NOT have this lens as one that will work on the EOS RP. Well it does.
This is THE LENS I wanted. I wanted as much reach as I can get in an all-in-one. I do not like fiddling around changing lenses.
Pretty happy with quality. Better than I expected — methinks.
So, spread the word.

Given that I do have a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus I do not use the Fitbit Inspire HR much. Yesterday, I charged it up and synched it … just to keep it ‘alive’. That is when I was told about the update. It took a fair amount of time to download — over Bluetooth. I just left it downloading and went to bed.
It was up and ready to roll in the morning. So, just wanted to make sure that you knew that there is new firmware.
It was downloaded, over Bluetooth, to my watch yesterday, i.e., April 27, 2019. I was surprised. Usually I only get updates when I am USB-connected to Garmin Express.
Version 7.10 appears to be a RENUMBERED 6.72 or 6.4x build! Check the Forum, they still have a ‘sticky’ for a 6.72 beta — which fixes the swim workout bug mentioned as the 1st item in 7.10!
This is expected to be a busy week for Garmin. SMILE. Watch this space.
I kind of knew there were some betas so I went to the Garmin Forums to check what is going on.
I was right. Last update was at the end of November 2018 — Version 6. I have that. Nothing since.
That is NOT right. It isn’t as if there are no bugs that need to be fixed or features added.
Garmin used to be pretty good at doing updates. But, now … this.
Sure, they want some of us to UPGRADE to the MARQ series. We will see.

I got the download when I connected it to my Windows PC, via USB, to charge it up.
I can’t find anything about this update on the Web — BUT it is on my watch.
So, just wanted to give you a heads up.
Download and install was pretty fast. Had to restart the watch.
