If Garmin Express not working for you, there are several reasons you should check. Take a look at whether the installed version of the Garmin Express app is up to date and if it is not, then you should update it. This problem can also be solved with a simple restart of the computer on which the app is installed.
What Garmin Express is used for?
Garmin Express is a tool that helps you manage your Garmin device from your PC. If you have installed the app, you can synchronize your fitness data with Garmin Connect or update the maps of your Garmin GPS device. You will also need Garmin Express to register your device before first use and later to install updates or create backups.
Garmin Express stops working – The following steps can help
If the Garmin Express app cannot be opened on the PC or you receive an error message, first check whether you have installed the current version of the app. To determine if you are using the current version of the app, you need to download the app from the internet. In case, you receive ‘Garmin Express is already installed’ message on the screen, then that means, your app is up to date.
