I stated back when GE first came out, it was a marketer's dream. Where you've gone, and all your POI's that are loaded, where you've been (breadcrumbs), distance driven between map updates, and more.

I didn't get that on my Win7 system, maybe it's Win10 related and nothing to do with Garmin?

I have Windows 10 Home v 1703 build 15063.726

All spy stuff turned off, GE installed and didn't ask for any permissions.

Yes

My Win10 system updated without issue also, so suspect it's a Win10 thing somewhere as I too have all my spy stuff turned off!

it is garmin not windows

when I click on my device where it asks if you want to back it up, on the bottom of the page under you device data it gives you a choice of sharing data or not it will not allow me to click no, it says there was an error saving consent! and I know the difference between what windows is doing and garmin, turn on your task manager (ctrl alt del) to see what is running in the background and you will find you don't have as much turned off as you think you do!

Well ...

... if you get that error it also says that in the meantime it won't share your data ...

I thought from your earlier comment it was while you were installing Express, clearly I was wrong smile

Wrong version of GE?

I verified for GE update and received version 5.8.0.0
After the install, there was a warning that GE could not share my data with Garmin due to server?

I tried to re-install my Nuvi in GE but it could not even see it?

I then re-installed GE and it gave me v5.7.1.0 again and everything works well again.

I suspect that 5.8.0.0 is not a proper version for my Windows 10 and should not have been flagged/recommended for my computer.

Well ...

It's working fine on my Win10 and Win7 systems. As you'll see above others also have it working on Win10.

I use Edge as my default browser and as you know Java does work in Edge. I recall seeing an error regarding Java for some reason .....

Obviously, the older version is more compatible for my setup.

Perhaps the others with re-occurring problems, could look to re-installing GE also. It apparently does NOT /offer/install v5.8.0.0 ....not yet anyway.

GE update page still offers the update 5.8.0.0 .....I think I'll wait a bit.

Downloading...

I'm with you, my friend.

I would guess that Garmin hasn't gotten its telemetry servers up & running just as yet. We'll have to ignore this annoying banner for a little while until the inevitable bugfix comes out. Maybe they'll even remove this "feature" in that update.

When I first opened GE after the update, I had an orange banner with an exclamation point that said "Click this banner to select your data sharing preference". Clicking the banner took me to the page that has the Back Up info. and Your Device Data where I can select No or Yes to: Do you consent to Garmin collecting, using, and sharing your device data? When I selected No, I got an Error Saving Consent message: "We had a little trouble saving your consent setting. You can try your selection again or come back later. Don't worry, we'll remind you! In the meantime, we will not share any of your data."

That does not say that they will not collect or use my data, only that they will not share it. evil

Try This ...

This is the error I was referring to in my post above. You will also notice that the option is a choice between buttons instead of a slider as in the previous version.
Un-install the new version and then re-install the version from the Garmin website. It should give you the previous version (it did for me) with the slider for the choice for data collection and it works properly.

I strongly suspect that many of the people above did not notice this bug.

Hope your new install works for you too.

Does the Apple version always have the same version number as the Windows version?

Maybe a reason for the above?

The versions numbers are usually in synch, though one (usually the Windows version) will get a fix without the other. Both just went to v5.8.0.0.
