Uninstalled GE 7.7 & reinstalled GE 7.5. GE7.5 recognised both units first time. Then upgraded to 7.7 and neither unit recognised so back to 7.5 and no issues which suggests there is a glitch in the 7.7 software in respect of some units?

Mine appears to be doing the same...

So where can I get the previous version from?

I tried getting 7.5 (and 7.4.1) from Updown.com but was warned by MalwareBytes that it was suspect. I removed 7.7 and installed that version of 7.5 but although it recognised the devices, it kept saying "Our servers are down"

Today, I tried 7.2.2, which I had used to revert with a previous issue and it worked OK. At present it's updating the map on the PC. (Previously 7.7 had updated the Nuvi but failed on the PC.)

I'm also getting the error message saying cannot connect as the servers are down when I connect my Camper 780 unit yet I don't get it when I immediately connect my Drivesmart 55 unit. I un-installed the latest GE software over the weekend and re-installed GE7.5 and initally all was fine but yesterday this version of GE started giving issues. Now at a loss as to resolve the issue and Garmin aren't any help and seem to suggest I'm imagining things!
