i hope

They skip issuing

Garmin Express 4.0.20.0

and go straight to

Garmin Express 4.4096.156342.69

I'm getting tired of these sequential releases.

Never argue with a pig. It makes you look foolish and it anoys the hell out of the pig!

I don't understand all the

I don't understand all the excitement about GE updates.

Once I download a new map, plus any firmware updates, for the 4 various devices I maintain, and the units are up and running, why keep downloading GE?

And, why have GE, and all the associated Garmin services, constantly running on your computer?

If Garmin would make a version of GE that only supported car devices, we'd rarely see a GE update.

Anyway, that's my unsolicited 2 cents.

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.

Thank you for the information.

I haven't changed the default Auto to Off and it's worked for me before. Why should it be changed?

In a former version of Garmin Express there were problems downloading updates. Someone here made the suggestion that the update hung on looking for a proxy server, which almost all of us do not have. When the setting was changed from Auto to Off, the update worked.

This problem must be solved after so many bug fixes but it can't hurt to turn it Off.

Check for updates to Garmin Express

I always get "Failed", Proxy Auto or Off

I always have to download and instal from:

I still cannot update from within GE on Win7 64-bit. It will download 70 percent or more and then fail. I have tried proxy on and off, neither have worked for me For other people with this issue this link will install the update for you.

Thanks for the info.

Does GE revert to proxy each time it's opened, or at least each time the computer is booted up? I've set my GE from Proxy to Off on two computers, yet each time I open it and check the settings, it's back to Auto. Then too, another unexplained issue with my GE is that on one computer, the "leave running in background" which I always uncheck, is checked after each GE update. But on the other computer, the unchecked setting is preserved with each GE update.

GE Proxy setting

@CraigW
I have Proxy set to Off and that setting sticks through Garmin Express restarts, reboots and even updates to GE. So I am thinkng it must be something unique to your setup.

The only Garmin Express setting that doesn't stick across an update to GE is the "keep Express running in background". It is always checked after an update and I have to go in and uncheck it.

Thanks. I wonder if my Proxy returning comes from my opening GE, going to Settings, changing from Proxy to Off, then just closing the program. Maybe I need to do something like check for updates to a device or something after changing my Settings to get the Settings to work—or maybe GE needs to be running in background when I switch from Proxy to Off to get Off to stick.

I'm glad to see that you also need to reset the "keep running" to unchecked after an update. It does leave me wondering, though, why one of my PCs with GE retains the unchecked "keep running" Setting.

There's still a lot of mystery to just how GE works even though it's now running well enough (and with enough Settings options) that I've started to use it routinely for map updates and even some software updates, and not feel bad about having it installed to my PCs.

I have two PCs running Windows 7 x64. On one PC, after an update to GE, the proxy setting reverts to Auto. On the other PC it stays at Off. "Running in the Background" always stays unchecked on both PCs. Rebooting is not an issue for either setting. Whether GE runs from time to time is not an issue either.

I am satisfied that Garmin Express is now reliable.

Don't

Don't think we know yet. Remember that GE is Garmin's "all in one" update software offering so the changes between this release and the last one could all be for any Garmin device EXCEPT a GPS.

Update at new map time

I don't try to keep up with Garmin Express updates between map updates. Since Garmin forces you to take them anyway with a new map update (if you don't have the latest version of GE) I just wait until I take a new map update. There always seems to be a flurry of multiple ne GE updates just before a new map release anyway, so it just skips ahead and gives you the newest version.

Makes sense to me as that's the only time I use GE

I don't quite understand what all the fuss is either in between map updates and firmware updates. What's the point in updating?

Updating now.

If I wasn't checking in here to see what's going on, (i.e.: if this site didn't exist) I would never be aware of the new Garmin Express updates anyway: I turn off Garmin Express again (background running) after I update my map. Available Firmware updates also come with a new map update, but as my 2595 is at the point of being a "mature" product now, they are infrequent. I like to update to the new map when it comes out, even though I know that the changes are pretty minor. My "elderly" 255 still gets me there and back without getting lost, even though the map hasn't been updated since I purchased it.

I installed this a few days

I installed this a few days ago. I was having problems getting maps to load on my computer, and the old Express didn't have a link for the install. Put on the new one, and got my 2015.4 maps up to date for BaseCamp.

updating...

Good to Know

Thanks for the post. I would have missed it otherwise. That's why I login to POI-Factory at least once a week.
