Customer Question

I recently purchased a new computer and transfered my software (Edge 705 and etrx Vista Cx) to the new computer. The old computer was Windows 7. The new computer is Windows 10. Is there a special USB driver for these two Garmin devices to be used with Windows 10? I get a message that the software cannot communicate with the device when trying to download Edge 705 data. I have loaded the file USBDrivers_2311 several times with the same result.

Hi Brian,

There is no special USB driver for these devices - they use the generic Windows USB drivers.

Download and install the latest Garmin Communicator Plugin and let me know if that works:
