Is it possible to run it without it updating itself?

No, it's what Garmin deem a 'critical update' so you have to update.

Is there a map update or anything else that I can do without?

Depends on your device but no new CN map.

Look what happens when you let the Garmin developers work from home Smile

As an aside, whilst doing some housekeeping, it seems that you no longer need the Garmin USB drivers since the MTP devices came out.

Uninstalled mine and all still OK.

Really? Nothing new on mine. If you mean the blue circles with numbers in top right of the device on the home screen they've been there for a while.

Until this update, I had never seen a way to see download progress. With this release I got a download progress bar.

Happened last time as well ...............

As soon as I started GE I got a popup telling me there is a new version available and do I want to install it. I answer 'Yes' but it does nothing.

Then I go to about/help where it tells me there is a new version and it installs AOK from there.

In my best English ..... Gotted Smile


I've found that although nothing appears to be happening after saying 'Yes', the update is downloading in the background. I know this because I have a network switch right next to the computer and can see the lights flickering. Eventually the accept dialogue box pops up and away the installation goes.

This is the only program, that I can recall, that doesn't show any indication that something is happening!


Sorry couldn't find a way to link to this previous post. Did something other change, between then and now, or did I miss something?

Missing Link

New version just released allows you to view updates without device connected, seems it wasn't deliberate Wink

Good old Garmin QA testing strikes again.

No wonder we get so many updates.

And talking of updates, Garmin's released 7.0.1.

Release notes as follows:
- Fixed an issue that prevented users from being able to redeem voucher codes for maps.
- Fixed an issue that prevented users from selecting View Details for a map update if their device was disconnected.

Hopefully they've fixed the ability to view maps AND the updates when the unit's disconnected.

Postnote - Yay - they've fixed it (but shouldn't have broken it in the first place)
