    I tried to register with Garmin Express to update my Nav V , however I have windows 7 and I get a messgae stating express will not operate on this system , is there any other way I can update without updsating my computor to windows 10?

    Until this week, I've previously been using Windows 7 to successfully update both my device (Zumo 660) & PC. Now on Windows 10 & having problems. I believe that the version of GE to be installed can be selected for older versions of Windows. Therefore, Windows 10 should not be necessary to update maps using GE.

    I've found Garmin support to be very helpful, they can be contacted on free phone, 0808 238 0000.

      Ah David, you did not previously mention that this was a Windows 10 problem. You may have a Windows Firewall of some sort switched on which is preventing updates on your computer.

      Start googling "windows 10 preventing computer update".   I updated to Windows 10 a year or so ago and had some of these problems, though I can't remember if GE was affected.

      Good luck.
