My Zumo 660 is up to date, Software Version 5.10 & Full Coverage of Europe 2018.20 maps.

GE updates are more frequent than map updates.

Hi, noted of GE update thanks, by the way there is a Garmin Europe map version 2018.30 available (for the Zumo 395 anyway). Regards
Title: Re: Garmin Express update
Post by: David. on 2018-03-03 09:10:16
Had the Zumo 660 since 2011, think Garmin only update the maps twice per year on this device.

Is the Zumo 395 a fairly new one.

Hi the Zumo 395 was bought last year for the bike. Also have a Nuvi 2595 since 2013, for the car, and that has updated as well. Both have life time maps (LTM). Regards

Once again, had to uninstall v6.16.1.0, got a message "Microsoft.NET Framework required for Garmin Express setup". Something to do with Windows 7, when I'm on Windows 10, it's beyond me.

The GE System Requirements for Windows are, "Windows 7 SP1 or newer, Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 (included)"

Successfully downloaded Garmin Express v6.17.0.0 from Garmin website.

Have you tried doing a stand alone install of the required .Net library?

You should still be able to install without any problem. If that does not fix the problem you could even try installing the dev pack https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42637 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42637)

Thanks for your suggestions, I'm rather nervous when it comes to PC matters, I usually get a man in.

Meanwhile, if necessary, looks like I'll have to continue with the "uninstall" then "download" method, it seems to work for me.
Title: Re: Garmin Express update
Post by: PeteM on 2019-09-20 13:37:28
I wouldn't worry too much about installing the MS library, as they come from MS they tend to be pretty reliable, will only install if it does not break anything and uninstall reliably.

Thanks for the "heads up", update failed again.

Had to uninstall v6.18.0.0, then as recommended by my PC Guy, shutdown & restarted the PC. V6.19.2.0 now downloaded ok from Garmin website.

Will be interesting to see whether or not, when the next update is available, this action solves the problem of failed GE downloads in the future.

GE Version 6.20.0.0 now available.


If one Googles Garmin Express Release Notes, you should be able to discover what the fixes in GE are meant to do as GE is the supporting updating of all Garmin devices from fitness watches to SatNavs.


Some folk on this forum might have learnt from very bitter experience that it is important to have the latest version of GE installed before doing any map updates (I am referring to when European maps were split into North and South).


Personally, I only update GE before I do a map update or if there is specific problem with the SatNav, such a fixing the year roll-over problem on the Nav 5.

Hi, I downloaded GE v7.1.3.0 no prob but when I tried to run it ... Nada! nothing! Would not open. Even tried to run it as Administrator. My laptop is on Windows 10. My solution was to uninstall v7.1.3.0 and re-install V7.1.20, problem solved. I do have to reinstall my GPS and watch again on Garmin Connect. Anyone else having a similar problem??
Title: Re: Garmin Express update
Post by: David. on 2020-09-01 09:25:19
Yes, I'm having problems updating my GE to v7.1.3.0.

Currently have v7.1.2.0 installed, I have to uninstall it from my PC, then re-install. When searching Garmin website for v7.1.3.0, I can't find it and just end up re-installing v7.1.2.0. Hence asking whether a version for Windows not just MAC was available.

Post by: jjwill on 2020-09-01 09:40:19

Thank you, I don't think there is anything spoiling if I leave 7.1.2.0 installed for the time being.

I have a Garmin Zumo 660 which only gets map updates twice a year or so, usually in the Autumn & Spring.
