• Fixed an issue preventing users from updating courses on some golf devices.
• Added the ability to select a custom install location when re-installing maps.
Thanks for the info. Just installed Win 7 x64 no problems.
I just installed the update and the program gets locked while trying to find updates. It doesn't let me do anything. It just tries to find updates forever. I had no problems with 4.20.0. Anyone else have problems with this update?
Just updated with no problems on Windows 8 x64.
I forgot to say that I am using Windows 8.1. I will try to uninstall the update and reinstall it to see if that fixes the problem.
Hopefully an update for Mac soon. Running 4.20.0 and it crashes every time I start the application. "An unexpected error has occurred and Garmin Express must close. If you continue to experience this, contact Garmin customer support.
Garmin began rolling out Garmin Express v220.127.116.11 for the Mac today. If you would like to upgrade to the latest version, Check for Application Updates by clicking “About Garmin Express” from the Garmin Express menu bar, and then click “Check for Updates to Express”. This version includes the following changes:
• Fixed an issue where accepting the End User License Agreement could cause Garmin Express to crash.
• Fixed an issue with display languages in Chinese locales.
• Fixed an issue where Garmin Express would incorrectly message that the SD card capacity was insufficient on some Kenwood devices.
• Fixed an issue where users were unable to register their devices if they hadn’t chosen to do so when initially adding them to Garmin Express.
So far I have successfully avoided GE. I actually did install it very briefly quite a while ago but almost immediately removed it and haven't felt the need to install it again. As long as the map updater is still around it works quite well for me.
Version 4.20.0 is the problem. Just Google Garmin Express to find the link to download from the Garmin site.
I just uninstalled 4.21.0 and re-installed the version on Garmin's website and now Garmin Express 4.21.0 now works right. It now showed me an update for the time zone map to correct v16.0 which I had previously installed and I installed the newer version.
Thanks for getting back to us!
Still can not get myself to load GE while I keep hearing about problems.
Thanks; just updated.
just updated seems all went well after the install if offered me the language and time update I don't think I needed them !
I wonder if there will be less problems with maps update. So far I was unable to successfully update maps with GE on my Nuvi 770, and I don't know how long MapUpdater will work.
The good news from Garmin is that GarminMapUpdater is now the only way to update maps from a Windows XP computer:
so it appears that Garmin will keep GarminMapUpdater available and hopefully if a newer version is needed, they will update the program. I've also heard stories that Garmin Tech Support also has directed folks to use GMU when GE fails to update maps on some devices. Until we hear otherwise from Garmin, GMU should remain available for map updates.
Note that the warning in the above faq link is for devices with a shaded relief (DEM) map. Your nuvi 770 isn't one of them so you can safely use the Map Updater program for map updates without losing any files. Then, too, with all the updates for Garmin Express, you may find that Garmin Express will also update your nuvi 770 maps in the future if you want to try it again.
thanks for the heads-up
I have been trying to update express on my Mac to 4.0.21 and when I try form the About Garmin Express check for updates the wheel just keeps turning.
So I went to the Garmin site and did a download for the Mac version and now I have Garmin 4.0.18 ( and I think I had version 4.0.20 when I started this)
I then went to Finder and in and in Applications I deleated Garmin Express App.
I did a fresh download and I still end up with 4.0.18
I am new to Mac's so what am I doing wrong?
Thanks for your help......Cy
Thanks for info
I guess I was behind. I ran the updater, 4.0.19 installed. I ran it again, 4.0.21 installed. In each case, install of updates was reasonably fast and hassle free.
And do a clean install before it would work.
Had to uninstall previous version and do a clean install to get the update to work
Mac version up to 18.104.22.168 now. I updated today.
