Just now is out the new GE V18.104.22.168
Installed in WIN 10, no problems at all.
Thanks for the information!
If you've had issues with GE properly "starting", perhaps this is related. For quite some time I've plagued with the issue of GE not always starting. I will sometimes get the splash screen, maybe the message to allow changes, but then nothing. A reboot may allow a proper start, but not always. So a few days ago, and with the version prior to 22.214.171.124, I decided to right click the executable at C:Program Files (x86)GarminExpressExpress.exe and then selected "Troubleshoot compatibility." Windows 10 (latest) found an issue and ultimately selected to run the file in compatibility mode for Windows 8. At least for about a dozen or so attempts, GE seems to start without any issues.

Whenever I start Garmin Express I'll get the splash and change screens but then GE just sits there seemingly doing nothing. But if I just give it time it eventually starts. I've never actually timed it, but it seems to take about 20 seconds before it gets going. Been doing that forever but it always finally does its thing.
GE updated no problems.
I’ve been patient, easily 20 seconds with nothing. Since running the Windows 10 Compatibility Troubleshooter, GE probably opens in 5 to 8 seconds and does it consistently.
No problems with download.
Thank you. Updated it on my Windows 11 laptop with no issues.
Nope went right in with know problem.
Multiple improvements for Music Management.
Resolved a crash for Marine users if they changed location while on the Chart Updates page.
Other minor bug fixes and improvements.
The Garmin Express Installer correctly displays the EULA now.
Resolved a false sync error that could occur when adding a device to Garmin Express.
Resolved a crash that could occur for Big Sur users when selecting Manage Maps.
Sometime around the mid-1990’s and because of my former Naval Officer days, I was invited to help a friend who lived in Benton Harbor take delivery of a 40’ power boat. It was equipped with a Garmin navigation system that required some form of initialization procedure that involved setting a reference. I remember turning the system on, you then had to wait about 20 minutes, then you set in reference by locating yourself on a map. We were initially located in the middle of a parking lot, probably several hundred feet away. Once set, the system got us across the lake to dinner in Chicago and back in rather thick fog. At the time I swore off GPS in favor of a trusty radar.
Installed with no issues
Installed no problems.
...I remember turning the system on, you then had to wait about 20 minutes, then you set in reference by locating yourself on a map...
GPS receivers typically store internally an almanac of the GPS satellite locations and the last known position of the receiver. The almanac takes 12.5 minutes to download from the GPS satellites. The almanac is valid for 90 days; so if the almanac is expired when you power up the receiver, it would need to download another copy to figure out where the satellites are. Another thing that would add additional time to the initialization is if the approximate starting location is incorrect or unknown. Power up a receiver that was used on the east coast and ship it to the west coast and it will take a long time to initialize. got burned by this more than once. Once the GPS receiver was initialized in the new location it would initialize in a minute or two.
And now the Mac version is up to 7.12.1:
Resolved a crash that occurs for users with SD cards in their devices.
I'm well aware of all you say, but keep in mind I was talking in the 1990's with what I believe was the first Garmin "marine" product. The system had been used the previous day and as best I recall the initialization process of setting a reference was recommended before any trip.
Upgraded to the latest GE version, and it starts just fine. But when I try to update my Nuvi760 to the latest map version, it tells me not enough room (happened before and I've have an 8G SD card in it for map updates for several years now), it tells me it can't find the card, even though the computer sees it just fine in Explorer. Any suggestions, or is this a GE bug with the latest version? I am on a older computer still running Windows 7.
When my 3597 won't recognize my card, I try to reformat it, FAT32. Fair;ing that, try a new card.
The Garmin unit does recognize the card... that is where the old maps are and it loads them. When its connected via USB in data mode, I can see both the internal drive and the external (SD card) drive in Windows Explorer on my computer. It's only Garmin Express which can't seem to find and recognize it!
How many files are in the SD card now? Could it have insufficient space giving you the "not enough room" message?
Delete the current files on the card or as suggested already, format the card, then see what happens. My nuvi 750, which is the closest I have to your 760, has no problem with my 16GB SD card and installed the entire North America map. (The SD card's gmapsup1.img file is 4,002,368 KB for City Navigator North America 2023.10 so if your 8GB card already has some map files, you may not have sufficient room.)
