Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of the issue you are having with your GPS.
May I ask if this is a NEW or perhaps "refurbished" Nuvi?
May I also ask what operating system you have on your PC?
And do you have any "error messages" or warnings when you TRY to download Garmin Express?
Thanks

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Please refund my $46 as the issue has not been solved, and as the GPS is new, Garmin will solve my problem at no charge.
