Garmin Express 5.1.1 for PC

 

And now it's 5.1.1 ...

Garmin began rolling out Garmin Express v5.1.1 for the PC on 1/17/2017. If you would like to upgrade to the latest version, Check for Updates to Express on the Settings page within the Express application. This version includes the following changes:

• Fixed an issue where Express could crash when attempting to add a device

Where there's a will ... there's a way ... DriveSmart50LMT-D, Nuvi 2508LMT-D, 1490LMT, 1310, Montana 650T, Etrex 20

didn't crash, but...

While running the version previous to this, I added a new device - a nuvi 3597. GE detected it and displayed a Marine GPS. A popup advised me to purchase marine charts. After restarting GE it came to its senses and detected the 3597.

Thanks sussamb.

Installed with no problem on my old Vista 64 laptop, but I realize one of these days it will be the end of the road for that OS.

All worked great.

I went to download, and it had updated itself already.

Do you have it running in the background

I don't but I have it to update automatically.
I am assuming that I have to have it running in the background for it to update automatically.

Another unauthorized update

GE updated itself again without my permission. It seems I have no control of GE updates.

updated

Well I thought I had disabled GE from running in background but when I checked it had updated by itself.
Every time I open GE it automatically puts itself in startup mode no way to stop it.

The early versions of Garmin Express were pretty bad, but the past couple of years I have found it to be quite reliable. I no longer use Webupdater or Mapupdater.

No Clicking Needed

I noticed that the GE icon on the desktop had "moved". It was now on the bottom with an vacant spot where it normally was. Knew right away that it had been automatically updated and this thread proved me right.

Thanks sussamb for letting all know.

Agreed. While there are often updates the vast majority of these are to do with fitness devices as Garmin introduce many more of them.

Downloading GE 5.1.1 issues

Has anyone had issues downloading GE 5.1.1?

When I launch GE, I get a prompt that 5.1.1.0 is ready to install. When I click OK, I get an error "Unsupported 16-bit Application" Basically an error saying its not compatible with 64-bit versions of Windows.

I went to Garmin's website to manually download GE. I get all the way to "Your download should begin automatically. If it doesn't, you can restart the download. Then Firefox gives the error below as does Chrome. The only option is to "Go Back" and I can't download GE.
