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.

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?

Garmin finally got the Mac software functionally reliable.

No more failed updates (after waiting *forever* for the download/ processing).

One-time connect to establish your unit's ID/ status -- after that, you do not need to reconnect until there is *really* an update for you.

One easy to navigate source for add-ons, manuals, etc for your specific units.

Nice update, however it continues to list updates you've already applied. Garmin: there has to be a way to make your apps smart enough to know what's available and NEEDED, and not just what's available. :)

I find this version is a big improvement over my previous. Makes it so easy to just install the new maps onto my Mac. Worked perfectly for my 2555LMT!

The System Requirements for this version (2.3.7) are wrong. It will not install on Snow Leopard (10.6.8).

When you try to run the package it complains that it will not install on this system and directs you to go to Garmin's site and download a version for Snow Leopard. The latest is 2.1.8.

This is true, it will not install on Snow Leopard, please change the requirements as shown on the MacUpdate site.

hmm, what's with the headline?

"Keep your nüvi, zūmo, or dēzl up-to-date."

What's confusing? That's the various series of GPS devices they sell. MR has since changed the title, but still.

I just spent 2 days trying to install a map update and they all failed. I ran Express for 12 hours and at the last minute the error code came up stating the download failed. I am using a DSL connection and I have no problem with other large downloads. This one is only 5.53 Gig. This software or the Garmin servers are not ready for prime time. The unit works great but their update software and update policies are crap. Apple and others have made online distribution of software painless but Garmin still seems to have problems.

Today, I had the same problem in updating the map for my nüvi 1300. After 3 hours stuck on downloading the map, I decided to re-download the Garmin Express application. Just like DavyB said below, the app's version was 2.1.8. The one I had was 2.1.7. After installing 2.1.8, the map downloaded and installed onto my nüvi 1300 flawlessly.
