I did, thank you. How recently did you download garmin express? Will the program install and run onscreen? Also, lets try the following with your nuvi. Lets master reset it Start with the device OFF and unplugged from powerTouch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencilContinue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the device ONRelease the power button when the device powers ONYou will see a new message: "Do you really want to erase all user data?"Remove your finger from the touch screen when this message displaysTouch YesIf text language is not in English, this is the button on the rightThe device will now reset. Follow the on-screen prompts and then place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.1Although the master reset will erase all saved favorites, any loaded custom points of interest will remain intact on the device. Once master reset, try disconnecting it and reconnecting it to your mac while garmin express is running on screen.. can it detect your device now?
