Thanks, Geoff.  I have just look for that version on the Garmin Web site 
but could not find it, at least by using the URL:

  http://www8.garmin.com/software/GPS18xPC_LVC_300.exe
  http://www8.garmin.com/software/GPS18xPC_LVC_30.exe
  http://www8.garmin.com/software/GPS18xPC_LVC_3.exe

instead of:

  http://www8.garmin.com/software/GPS18xPC_LVC_350.exe

I have yet to hear back from Garmin UK.

Cheers,
David
