Having a memory card really helped. Without it, download process can take hours, especially if you don't have the space on your Garmin. I recommend investing in a memory card.

I was trying to update a Garmin Nuvi 52 for an older relative. Darn software wouldn't detect the device. Same problem as the other method prescribed by the manual. Such a waste of time! What are my tech support options in Asia? It requires an international call to a call center in India! Why would anyone bother with a Garmin when there are options for real-time data/GPS with decent apps like Waze. Those work so well there's no need for customer support.

By the way: Garmin Express is NOT the easiest way to keep your devices up-to-date. Fix GarminExpress!

You missed the part about charging 130$ to have updated maps. No biggie though, the torrent was free. Maybe try something more reasonable like 20$ and people will actually go for it. Cheers

I just updated my unit on Windows 10. No problem! It did have to download a plugin first, but it's working well.

I had some problems uploading when I tried the first Update on my Lifetime Update. Garmin Support guided me through and I have had no problems since. One of the things we did was eliminated all the foreign languages that I did not need. That made so much more room on the Garmin then everything was good. Anyway, the Garmin people walked me through, they really do know their stuff.

Hi, impossible to connect to a Garmin Nuvi50 here, just so you know in advance I am an Hardware Expert, I build and fix computers and I have acess to a lot of diferent systems and OS's. Garmin Express does not detect the device in any of them. I have tested with windows 7 x32 and x64, windows 8.1x64 and windows 10 Pro x64. As you may guess I do have read and triple checked all the requirements. The numbers I see are: 2PQ003861 (on an sticker in the device), and UNIT ID:3849803565 in the system info. Waiting on a reply, Thankx.

I would love to use Garmin Express to update my map on BOTH of my lifetime map devices that I PAID for but unfortunately, ubuntu is not an operating system that you support.

I have the problem that my pc (60gb ssd) has 5 gb left, so when I try to update it I get the error that I need to free space but unfortunately this is not possible for me. Does anyone know where the default download location of Garwin is so I can create a mklink so another drive?
