Very few people know the importance of Garmin Nuvi update. Even I did not have any idea about what all things we can miss if we don’t update our Garmin Nuvi devices. For me, this blog is one of the most informational pieces of content I came across the internet about GPS devices. If you own a Garmin GPS, you can reach out to the team as I did. https://www.garminnuvimapupdate.com/

Minimal value: can't track slope or heart rate. It used to be possible to click and watch the ride move, but that feature no longer works. All it's good for is tracking mileage.

Garmin software on Mac sucks. No other way to describe poor performance, regular crashes and lots of WTF moments using any.all of their software. No improvements over times sadly - if anything, performance and features deteriorating over time. Wherever possible, I use 3rd party alternatives to avoid Garmin-related stress. 1 star is generous!

It's nice to have one app for managing multiple Garmin SatNav products, which I have three; 2 Nuvis and Garmin built-in my 2018 Honda CR-V. The reason for only two stars is the incredibly annoying and useless update download speeds. I have 50mb/s service and the best Garmin can do is 1.1mb/s. Seriously? Besides being slow, I have to constantly monitor the process because the updates often fail midway and I have to restart the whole process, so the whole task ends up taking an entire evening of MY time and that's for each device's update. Completely unacceptable. Garmin, this is YOUR issue, not mine, not my ISP's; YOURS! Period. Your a local company and I've supported you for many years but my loyalty has been stretched. Your days in my personal products are numbered.

It's not like you have other options when you have a Garmin smartwatch, but the application does what it should, although some appears through a browser, which begs the question: why the app? Regardless, it's a must have for Garmin watch users.

It would be great, if not for the problems. Either it thinks that there are no applications in the system, or it forgets the login each time.

Would be nice if this utility could install to the SD card, instead of the device itself. Also the ability to move things between the device and the SD Card and to delete unneeded items.

The Garmin's memory is almost full. But the SD card is empty.

Not a lot bells and whistles, but does its job of providing a conduit between GPS watches and Garmin Connect web services through your Mac. The app is only a conduit for most features as Garmin Connect is where you view data, update, settings, and create items such as workouts and routes.

Garmin needs a voice command for zooming the map. It is too dangerous to be trying to press the + and - buttons while driving. TomTom has had voice command for zooming forever. Come on, Garmin!!!

Ever wanted to buy a good GPS for running, cycling, .. ? Take a Garmin and you never regret buying it. If you are thinking of buying a Mio ... dont and go for Garmin instead.

One major feature that is missing from this application, is the ability to download security camera updates. Garmin is happy to sell you those subscriptions, but currently there is no way to do this on a recent version of OS-X.

Garmin has a plug-in for Safari, but I tried it on 10.9, 10.10, and 10.11. In no case would it work. I went through first level tech support. They were friendly, but could not fix the problem. 2nd level eventually said it was a “known problem.” I asked for an extension on the subscriptions that I could not use, but they would not give it to me.

I'd love to leave a review or comment but since I've been accused of ONLY leaving 4 stars or higher on all of the software I feel is worth anything, I'll have to stick to a 3star.

How is it Garmin's site is always setting off Chrome's security/privacy alerts? It's like they hired Sony's IT department. NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID This server could not prove that it is download.garmin.com; its security certificate is from a248.e.akamai.net. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.

Always like apps that present a total package and this one fits the bill. No confusing interface it brings together all necessary updates required by your device. I would like to see a charge indicator so I don't have to guess, unplug and check the charge on my NUVI 750.

Horrible, horrible, horrible!!! I want my Garmin Express Fit app back! I made the mistake of downloading this app. When I went to install it, it told me I had to close my Garmin Express Fit app, and then it removed it and replaced it with this beastly piece of dreck that bounces in my dock forever, painting its splash screen all over my desktop and nothing else. Here I am, on a trip, and now I can't log my runs. I've always felt Garmin didn't know diddly-squat about writing Mac software, and so I've been tentative about updating. The software that came with my 220 actually worked! Why, or why, did I get suckered into downloading this #@%@#$???

Works fine for me. This software has NEVER let me down. and the only thing is that could be a negative, would be that you have to go to "about Garmin Express" to go for the update, instead of showing it in help or somewhere else. on the menu bar.

It's not enough that Garmin Express insists on imposing itself into my Menubar; now it demands that I verify when I want to quit it from the Menubar.

Avoid this update if you want to own your training data. It will stop saving your workouts on your Mac, and instead send them to Garmin Connect. You can ask Garmin Connect for a copy of your workout data, but you have to ask for each and every workout. For me this policy change means uninstall and revert to Garmin Ant Agent.

No support for 10.6?? Shame on Garmin. Stupid too! If I spend lots of $$$ upgrading my Mac, that's less $$ for me to spend on Garmin. TomTom knows how to right 10.6 software. Why not Garmin?

Not sure what all of the complaints are about. I have 3 different Garmin GPS I keep updated with this app without any problems. Could be if you're having problems you're getting a drop in transfer or your speeds are too slow.

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?

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. :)

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.

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.
