You can download the firmware here:

  http://www8.garmin.com/software/GPS18xPC_LVC_370.exe

and the instructions are here:

A Windows PC is required, although whether the upgrade would work under a 
virtual PC running Windows under Linux I don't know.

The 18, rather than the newer 18x, should be OK.

Cheers,
