Never had this problem before. These last two versions have probably changed the programing enough to raise some system red flags regarding some accesses.

Not a major problem but far from being "clean"! Garmin should not tolerate such sloppiness.

error

that's what I get when I say I don't want to share my data and I don't think its a programing error, this problem was on the last version also I think Garmin is trying to pull a fast one !

Thanks

Thanks for the info on the new version.

As before

Installed without issue on my Win7 and Win10 systems.

Open GE. You don't need to

Open GE. You don't need to connect your unit. Select your unit. Select Tools and Content. Scroll to the bottom and see Your Device Data. Select yes or no to share. It should throw an error and say to the effect, "Error Saving Consent 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."

This showed up first in the last version, Mac and Windows.

You shouldn't have any problems based on the above comments.

The concerns are regarding the section granting sharing data with GE.

Have you viewed this section?

Data Sharing

I'm still getting an error if you want to select either yes or no for data sharing preference

No problems here either on W10...

...but like others still get that data sharing message.

Thanks for the heads-up rhl7943...

Other than the usual data sharing preference error, installed and working fine under Windows 10. smile

Very surprised the bugs are still there

I guess not that big a deal since it still works - but still annoying.

Thanks

Thanks, that reminds me, need to reinstall on my new PC.

Thanks

I'd forget to update the program if it wasn't for reminders like this thread. smile

Updated fine on W10 Pro

Appreciate the heads-up.

Good to know, will try

It would appear that the

It would appear that the Data Sharing preferences bug isn't, anymore. I just got opened GE and got prompted to save my Sharing Preds. It worked. However, I didn't have the unit connected, so it may or may not be different for you.

Good catch ... phranc

Works for me too. Curious why some here didn't have this problem. Clearly, it was at GE's end. Maybe they didn't get that far in the menus. LOL
