Update

Updated no problems in windows 11 insider version.

Took a while

Normally Express downloads in a couple of seconds on my computer, but for some reason this time it took nearly a minute. I thought that was kind of strange. No apparent problems with my connection, as I checked it out with other programs moments after Express finished downloading and everything was normal on those programs.

Oh well not a big deal, everything seems to be working fine now, but like I said, it was just an unusually slow download this time.

Thanks

Thank you. Updated with no issues.

thanks for the heads up

Download again

That happens to me sometimes. What I do is try to install again or wait later and try again. Sometimes the problem is the broadband.
Good luck

7.7.1.0 won't install maps to computer (solved)

I downloaded 7.7.1.0 when it came out but a few weeks ago I attempted to update the maps (NA2202_20) on my computer but GE gave an Error and wouldn't install the maps.

I have three GPS units (nuvi 1350, nuvi 1450, zumoXT). GE was able to install the new maps to the nuvi units (the zumoXT does it directly via wifi) but would not install maps to the computer.

My computer is running Windows10 and has a very small SSD hard drive with about 8gb available before downloading maps. This amount of free space has been successful in the past. Garmin tech support pointed me to the standard troubleshooting website but no amount of coaxing gave success.

Finally I located an older version of GE (7.4.1.0) and that version was able to successfully install the updated maps to my computer.

Garmin tech support has been notified.

I hope this helps anybody with similar issues.

Update SSD HDD

You can update to a Samsung 1 TB SSD drive for $ 99.00 at Amazon.com

In my newer laptop the SSD HDD was a tiny thing 1/2 the size of a memory chip which was only 128GB and I replaced it with the same type but 512 GB as my C: Drive, there is also a provision for a laptop size HDD where I installed a 1 TB Samsung as my D: drive. I install most programs to my D: drive as well as use it for storage of files. The 512 GB drive has Windows 10 on it and a few other programs. It boots up in under 10 seconds.

512 GB SSD drive @ $ 62.99 at Amazon:

Garmin's FAQ states that up to 20GB of computer space is needed to be able to perform a map update and this issue will be much more likely to occur when installing the map to the GPS Device and Computer rather than the default Device Only update.

I'm glad you found a way to update a map on your computer but I worry the problem could return with future map updates.

Try some cleaning up of remnants to regain some storage space

Try some cleaning up of Garmin remnants.

This is for Windows 10 and backslashes have been replaced by the "pipe" symbol | (vertical line). |

In the folder C:|ProgramData|Garmin|CoreService|Downloads|Map
are numerous folders named Map_Map.NA2021.20 or similar. Each folder is 6+ GB. You can remove all of them once installed or leave the most recent.

In the folder C:|ProgramData|Garmin|CoreService|Downloads|Application
there are folders named Application_Application.express-windows 7.1.4.0 or something similar. Each of those folders are 112 MB. Again, they can be removed of leave the most recent.

In the folder C:|ProgramData|Garmin|CoreService|Downloads|Firmware
there are folders named Firmware_Firmware.006-B19948.00.8.80 or something similar. Each of these folders is about 2 to 3 MB. I had 40 of these folders and deleted all but the most recent.

Cleaning Remnants

Thanks for the tips. I have been keeping the C:|...|Maps cleared but was unsure about how to approach Firmware and Application. There is a total of 130mb in them but have decided to leave them for now.

Eventually I will replace this laptop (with embedded SD HDD) but for now it will live on as-is. smile

Thank you for all the suggestions.

Something to consider

I noticed that you mentioned only having 8GB of free space on your drive. That is exceedingly low, regardless of the drive size. MS now recommends 8GB of free space just to upgrade Windows 10! You could of course run the drive cleanup that is within Windows 10 and perhaps gain some space.

What you might want to to do if you have an unused USB-A port is purchase a SanDisk - Ultra Fit™ 64GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive and install it into the port. This drive is about the size of a peanut and only protrudes about 1/4 inch.

Once installed, and of course depending on what is on your PC, move "stuff" to the Ultra Fit drive to free up space on your main drive. By "stuff" I mean things like Word documents, Excel, perhaps email, definitely photographs, videos, etc.

The 64GB version is $12 at Best Buy, see https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sandisk-ultra-fit-64gb-usb-3-1-.... There is a transparent version in 128GB, also on sale at Best Buy for $19. See https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sandisk-ultra-128gb-usb-3-0-mic...

There is also a 128GB version but it currently is not on sale so is $42.

Last thing, Samsung makes something similar, the 64GB ($17) at Best Buy can be seen at https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-fit-plus-64gb-usb-3-1-f...

Symbolic links not supported in GE 7.7.1.0? It was...

I have a relative compact C drive which houses Windows OS files so I can switch between systems while keeping my data in D drive intact.
I set up symbolic links to my larger file system for some apps which demands large size of storage such as iTunes and GE. As soon as I upgraded to GE 7.7.1.0, it begins to complain insufficient disk space which is C drive where is not for downloading map data.
