Preparation:

Garmin Express:

  1. Download Garmin Express by selecting the appropriate download for your operating system at: http://www.garmin.com/express
  2. Install Garmin Express
  3. After the installation is complete, connect your Garmin device and follow the onscreen prompts

WebUpdater:

  1. Download the WebUpdater by selecting the appropriate download for your operating system at: http://www.garmin.com/webupdater

Check the WebUpdater often to ensure you have the latest updates for your Garmin device.

Notes:

  • WebUpdater is not compatible with Palm and Pocket PC devices, fixed-mount marine devices, aviation devices, chartplotters, ANT enabled Forerunner devices, or fishfinders.
