Just my personal opinion but this myGarmin Agent™ is just plain silly and totally unnecessary. All it does is sit/run in the system tray (along with the hundreds of other things that get put there, sucking up system resources) and detects when you've plugged in a Garmin device. When it's detected, you then click on the icon where it then proceeds to open your browser and take you directly to myGarmin.com.
I think I'm fully capable of opening my browser and clicking on my myGarmin bookmark/favorite by now...

It's apparent that Garmin feels their average customer is a total moron. Who knows, maybe they're right!

Gotta go, my short bus is here.......

Surely you can see a device is plugged in. It can't be to far from you. I agree this is silly.

Garmin Agent

Does this work with all Garmin GPS's? I have the Quest 2 for my motorcycle and wanted to be sure it will work before wasting my time with it.

Are there any benifits to having this product? I didn't think I needed something to tell me I plugged in my unit.

Thanks

Garmin Agent (undercover)

Now if it could point out that my eyeglasses were sitting on my forehead instead of me looking all over for them, then I could see the benefit of it.

Just kidding, my glasses are soldered to my ears.
