Yes, they simply supply the data to Garmin. Have you seen this thread though https://forums.garmin.com/apps-software/mac-windows-software/f/garmin-express-windows/207081/cyclops-europe-database-updates---no-longer-available-via-garmin-express---now-resolved
Still no updates!!!! If Cyclops are responsible one would have thought that Garmin would have sufficient clout to sort it. Will I be getting a rebate for the months of no updates? Is there any point to me renewing my contract? This happens every year so sort it Garmin.
