Which operating system are you using on your computer? Which version?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Windows 10
Electronics Technician: Rusty, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

That's what I'm seeing is the problem. It is only designed to work with Windows Vista or 7. Did you recently "upgrade" to Windows 10? Drivers haven't caught up with the new version yet, and it's causing quite a large amount of problems with devices not being able to connect.

it sounds like I'm out of luck with that Garmon device and windows 10 ?am I going to be able to use the Garman 520 device and my Apple iPhone 5s?
Electronics Technician: Rusty, Customer Service replied 1 year ago

I'm sorry, you will have to use a Windows 7 computer to connect. It will not work with a Mac computer. You may be able to do the updates with an SD card. If you copy the file to the SD card, insert it in your GPS, and update it that way.

I'm having computer trouble at the moment, please look in your user manual to see how to update with SD.

OK, hard to believe you were having computer problems and you just refer me to a user manual. What's the process to get a refund on my money that I paid for your assistance?
