The version numbering system is a bit confusing, at least to moi. Is 2.10.27 (really) newer than 2.10.3? FWIW, the Dropbox site still indicates 2.10.3 is the current version.

Thanks, Mmueck. Can't say that I agree Dropbox's numbering scheme, but I appreciate your prompt reply.

For years, I have been a reasonably satisfied Toast user. But with the last 2 upgrades, I find the upgrade cost not worth the benefit. No doubt others who burn a great deal or require exotic features will take exception, but with the passage of time, I now burn only rarely. Even Apple has, for all practical matters, abandoned disk drives. And with free cloud storage, streaming media, & inexpensive-high capacity thumb drives, Toast will soon be toast, at least for moi. And FWIW, while I was satisfied with the app, I found the tech support lacking in every regard.

Perhaps if I was aware of cDock, I would have gotten that. I dunno. But I do know that DockMod is rock-solid and does all it claims to do, and does it conflict free. That I have the option to customize the dock in infinite ways is but another benefit Updates have always been within a day of the OS update and customer support is first-rate/same day. That I can also help an aspiring IT student, is just more icing on the cake.

So far, I heavily favor v5.x. Were I to (re)install v5.2.3 over v6.0 would I need do anything special, or may I merely replace the new app with the older one?

A bit if jerkiness upon initial scrolling, but a restart put things to right, e.g., smooth as glass. A great product with great support. Couldn't be happier.

Within a day of the 10.9.3 release, Adam published the update/fix. Bravo!

If you find that DockMod no longer works with 10.9.3: 1. Launch DockMod 2. Go to User Preferences 3. In the top right corner, toggle the On/Off switch (you may need to restart). AFAIK, that always works (though there is always a machine somewhere that proves me wrong).

For me, all the horror stories that others have noted, came to pass; incredibly slow, tried to install data already installed, and then failed/crashed when trying to complete the update, and left the app (and I don't know what else) unstable. Fortunately I had a full OS backup. Perhaps it was just moi or my system, but for now, I'll wait for the next version.

As one who damned earlier versions, I am pleased to note that this one works as advertised. The Garmin Lifetime updater was replaced, as in a version updater, but now the app is called Garmin Express and has a different icon. Time will tell re how solid/robust this version is, but for now, the outlook is favorable.

Alas, I remain confused... I already have Garmin Lifetime Updater and Garmin Web Updater. What does this app do that is different/better than what I already have? Or has it merely supplanted those or what?

Now I'm confused... On my 10.9.2, my installed version of Airport Utility is 6.3.2. So for whom, or for what Airport models does this apply? Or is the stated version number merely a typo or some such?

Thanks to you both! Indeed the fog has lifted; and I do so appreciate the light you have shared.
