There are many reports of issues using Garmin Express to load updates. Every report has been resolved through the use of MapUpdater which also will load the map to your computer allowing Base Camp to be used without a GPS attached.

Interesting post I found on another site indicating Garmin is aware of some of the problems with EXPRESS and working on it. Specifically the inability to download maps to BOTH PC AND COMPUTER.

This is a quote from a recent post (3/20/13)

"For those still struggling with Express and the problems of updating to GPS and PC, here is the latest from the Garmin team:

Thanks for the feedback. I can confirm that the option to install to both device and computer will be in a future version of Express. I don't have a firm date, but our goal is to have that release out prior to the 2014.10 map releases."
