  • Garmin Express Release Notes

    Garmin began rolling out Garmin Express v6.11.1 for the PC today. If you would like to update to the latest version, please visit the About page within the Settings of the Express application and select “Check for Updates to Express.” This version includes the following changes:
    • Minor bug fixes and improvements.






    Previous Versions:

    6.10.0
    • Improve syncing with our Garmin Mode USB devices, such as the Forerunner 305.
    • Corrected a string that was translated incorrectly in Czech.
    • We’ve made a change to help prevent users from accidentally activating Downloadable Content to the wrong device. It is now required that the device is connected to the computer.
    • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.





    6.9.0
    • Fixed an issue that could prevent Express from detecting a vívoactive 3 Music device.
    • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.



    6.8.1
    • For our Fitness and Outdoor devices that support ephemeris, we fixed an issue with Express providing an expired EPO.bin file.
    • Our Android OS devices will update successfully now.
    • Express would indicate a successful sync, but the activity would not get uploaded. If an activity fails to upload, Express will indicate a failure instead.
    • We’ve improved the download progress for our marine charts. The progress will no longer sit at 1 minute for an extended period of time.
    • Fixed a crash that occurs for users who are specifically running Windows 10 version 1703.
    • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.





    6.7.2
    • Fixed an issue with the installer. Any new users who had never installed Express before would encounter an error during the installation.




    6.7.1
    • Fixed a crash that would occur after updating Express to v6.7.0. The crash happens when the user tries to launch Express.




    Important Notes:
    • If you are running v6.5.1 currently, you will not be impacted by this update. This prevents the crash from happening.
    • If you have updated to v6.6.0 or v6.7.0, but are able to launch Express successfully, you are not impacted by this issue. We still highly recommend updating, however.
    • If you have updated to v6.7.0, and are experiencing the crash, you must download Express from our website:
      • You do not have to uninstall Express before downloading from the website.




    6.7.0
    • For our devices that support CIQ apps, you will no longer need to log into the CIQ Store when launching from Express.
    • If you encounter a crash when using Express, we now provide you the ability to send us the crash report information right away. Receiving these reports will help us continue to improve your experience.
    • We’ve made some improvements to music management with our supported devices. Express will display the amount of free space available on the device and the total size of all content you’ve selected to download.
    • We improved our map update page by displaying the completed percentage and the download rate.
    • For downloadable content, such as our Cycle Maps, not all the necessary files were being delivered. Users will receive all the correct files now and no longer receive a “Can’t Unlock Maps” message.
    • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.




    6.6.0
    • If you’ve purchased a map from a vendor that contains a voucher code, the code can be redeemed through Express to activate and download the map.
    • It’s always best to keep Garmin Express up to date with the latest version. Express will now provide an alert when a new update is available. This will allow you to know right away and not have to depend on going into the Settings to check for updates.
    • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.





    6.5.0
    • Express indicates a new device has been connected by displaying a banner. Also, for users who have had to send in their device and received a replacement, Express will detect that it’s the same model of device and ask if you’d like to replace the already added device or add it as a new device.
    • Improvements have been made to the Help Pages for adding a device.
    • Fixed an issue that could cause the time to change on a Forerunner 645 after being synced.
    • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.




    6.4.0
    • Added the option to use your iTunes Library to manage music within Express.
    • If a user backed up their favorites from an older Automotive device into Express, the file would go to the incorrect location and not appear on the new device when it would get transferred. We fixed this issue and now the file for your favorites will transfer to the correct location.
    • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.




    6.3.0
    • Music files would not be included with the transfer of a playlist that was exported from iTunes. This was causing an error and has now been resolved.
