    Garmin Express Mac Update?

    FWIW, Garmin Express just advised me to update my Mac. I don't know if this the current version, as I thought I'd done a GE update a couple of weeks ago.

    Here's a screenshot:

    It is new. I updated two weeks ago to 6.20. Just updated again to 6.21.

    Maybe this is to get everything ready for the BMW Navigator VII?

    We can hope, anyway...

    It's just a patch to fix a bug and other minor issues. From the Garmin forum:

    Garmin began rolling out Garmin Express v6.21.0 for the Mac. If you would like to update to the latest version, please visit the “About Garmin Express” page from the Garmin Express Menu and select “Check for Updates to Express.” This version includes the following changes:

    • Express will no longer display Download Failed when an update is not available. It correctly indicates the user is up to date.
    • Other bug fixes and improvements.
    ps Garmin Express for Windows also got the minor bug fixes and improvements.

    Download Failed

    On my Macbook Pro and iMac, I'm still stuck at 6.14. Every attempt to download the updates ends in "download failed." Weird.

    UPDATE: Figured this out with some help from patm's post. If you attempt to download the Garmin Express updates from within the old version(s), you get "download failed", but if you go on the Garmin Express website, and download version 21 for OS (Apple) directly from there, it creates a dmg file you then click to install and it all works just fine.
