    I haven't upgraded my 8.1 Pro to 10 solely because i want to temporarily keep Media Center which isn't supported in 10 [but i'll certainly do it before the 12 months upgrade offer runs out and use something like Kodi/XBMC, Win MC sucks a bit anyway. Only laziness has kept me from moving on].

    I did have the 32-bit evaluation 10 running in VMPlayer and did some basic tests with BC, MI etc and saw no obvious issues but that's hardly the same as running them day-to-day full on in a direct OS. I too would be very interested as to how ppl have found the current Garmin software runs in 10 and if there were any issues.

    Laziness has kept me from making an image of my W7 installation with Acronic True Image. If I run into problems with W10, I can then revert to W7 within 20 minutes.

    I am thinking of upgrading to W10 anyway but restoring W7 on a separate partition as a dual boot. Various thoughts I am still playing with.

    Upgraded to W10 Pro from W7 Ultimate month ago (64-bit). Have no any issues with Garmin software (BC, GE, and all others include utilities GIR editor and so on). But before upgrading made full Acronis image for any cause)))

    Same as Ducadim above - no problems with transition.

    After upgrading over a month ago Basecamp wouldn't see my device while W10 was seeing it, had also a problem to "safely eject" the device. I contacted Microsoft support and they said it was probably a problem with the file system in W10 and that they would get a fix for it.
    Everything was fixed after MS released updates KB3081444 and KB3081441

    Default Windows 10 compatibility with Garmin Mapsource

    I have recently updated to WIN10 on empty HD and now I would like to install again Mapsource or some other software for Garmin maps. Which software should I use - which will not cause problems on WIN 10?

    TIA

    Ero

    No problems for me after upgrading to 10, Basecamp, Mapsource, Express, Webupdater, Updater.exe and other unofficial tools work fine
