What is this icon mean? B&G Zeus 2 Chartplotter

What does this symbol mean (see attached image) on my B&G Zeus 2 Chartplotter? The symbol is an Exclamation Point sitting in a tray. Can't find it in the manual.

Pretty sure that icon only comes up when you are in the System Settings menus..

I wished I was in front of my Zeus 2 to verify that!

Nope, the icon is visible on on every screen, just like the Radar active icon next to it.

First, any only, guess is a Micro SD card read error. No idea why this comes to mind and is probably wrong.

Do you have a card inserted? Does it go away if you take it out?

Have you ever tried to connect it to the Internet for updates? If so, it didn’t complete. You might try downloading the latest update and running it from a file for all your B&G products.

This is possible, thanks. I'll check the version and update.

I used to see it on mine as well, then it disappeared.

I suspect it is something tied to a SD error and/or a firmware update issue, as others have said, since the icon disappearance on mine coincided with my purchase and loading of a Navionics SD card and with an update of the Zeus software (I am not sure which one, I did not pay enough attention).

To all: I figured out what this icon meant.

In the System->Files screen, where you can move files around from the onboard memory and sd cards, there is a row called "Downloads".

Turns out there were a number of downloads that failed, including PredictWind downloads failing because I was not a premium member.

I cleared them all and the icon disappeared.
