I am used to updating my 9500ix by bringing it inside and hooking it up to my desktop computer by USB cable and a plug-in 12volt power supply wall adapter.
The LI looks like it has an older style serial port that is no longer used by any modern computer, including mine. And, I do not own a laptop (old or new).
Can I practically update an LI (which I would like to buy) from my desktop?
Can it's computer module be disconnected and updated without being connected to the rest of its system components?
Is there a USB interface in its future?
Or, should I just consider a Blinder (are they software updateable)?
