GPS Repair Problems? Ask a GPS Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.
To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) The FULL Model Number of the device you are working with? That model SHOULD be showing on the Garmin Express screen - usually at the top.
2) Is there a line of text - right below the progress bar - that says what should be happening? That could say "downloading files..." or something like that.
3) Is there ANYTHING ELSE running on the computer - that might be using internet access?
Please use the REPLY box below.
I didn't see a response here - on this page - but wanted to send the following before I sign off for the night.
I have a seen a similar "stuck update" recently - where the computer was stuck on about a "44 minutes remaining" - during the "download" part of the update.
To make a long story short, I "closed" (exited) the Garmin Express program, and got a "warning" that asked if I really wanted to exit, as the program believed it was still in the middle of an update. I clicked on the button that confirmed that I wanted to exit the program.
Then I waited about a minute or so - WITHOUT disconnecting the device - and RESTARTED the Garmin Express program. I then restarted the update, and the program continued with the update and completed the process SUCCESSFULLY.
I would recommend that you try the same thing, and see if that works for you too.
Please let me know what happens - when you can.
Thanks, ***** *****
Hi again and thanks for letting me know that worked for you.
What I believe this issue might be is a slight "bug" in the current version of Garmin Express - where the network (internet) stalls for a bit, and the "retry" portion of the program gets stuck.
I've sent a note to the software folks about this, but haven't heard back yet.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.If this has helped answer your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (5-star is my goal) so that I get credit for my time helping you with this question.You should see some "stars" (and SUBMIT button) to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to REFRESH your screen) or can not use them.
Thanks, ***** *****--. .-(im)
