    Apple Unlock "Extras / In App Purchases" in Garmin App to unlock more Features

    Hi everyone,

    I just got the Garmin App to run smoothly with German Maps without the "Authentication Error" at startup. I had to modify the hosts file to block the communication between the app and the servers from Garmin.com. But now I canīt buy additional extras because of the error message "Servers not responding".

    So is there a way to unlock these features? I just need the option/extra to output the Signal to my Kenwood Moniceiver which supports Garmin Navi App.

    Thanks in advance for any hints you can give

    Mike.

    The servers not responding because you have blocked them in the host file!

    Yes I know that this is because of the modified hosts file, but I wanted to know if there is another way to unlock them.

    Is this on a PC or your smartphone? If a PC, use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to temporarily rename your HOSTS file so the browser can access the servers. Just be sure to run it again after purchasing your extras so the HOSTS file is re-enabled. There should be similar apps for smartphones.

    Yes its on my Smartphone. Because my Kenwood headunit supports Garmin Navi App. But I'll give it a try to enable the servers for a moment to make the purchase. Maybe this works.

    If using app version 2.3 or older, then make sure you are not blocking donwloadg/triplew/silver/bronze.garmin.com in your /etc/hosts file and/or third-party firewall app (e.g., Firewall IP).
