The Art Of Bugfixing - Chapter 2
Never look back !
There were some problems with the 188.8.131.52 version for Window XP-SP3 users.
Is this repaired with the new 2.3.12 version ? (I have no XP anymore)
I think they are gradually fixing this ... maybe it will be safe to use eventually? It's certainly fast, much faster than MU.

Another update again: 184.108.40.206
Nüvi 2595 / 60CSx / 62s / Oregon 600
...strange and lucky experiences with Garmin Express 220.127.116.11....
I became aware of Garmin Express only a few days ago and installed it under Win7 32bit.
I connected a nüvi 1200 which I have bought almost three years ago and which I did use regularely. Garmin Express proposed to update Timezone Map and Database For FM Traffic Providers and - very very strange!!! - CN Europe 2014.30 Central and Eastern Europe. But that nüvi never had a lifetime maps update option!
I did download the map to the pc and it came with a valid unlock key, FID 3122, PID 1, Region ID 1, Vendor ID 16
Then I tried a nüvi 1255 and a nüvi 1450, both without lifetime map update also and for both Garmin Express offered to update the maps to CN Europe 2014.30 full coverage!
I suppose that this is a bug for I cannot imagine that Garmin is giving map updates for free. Lets hope that they do not fix this bug!
The Nuvi Must have had a Lifetime Maps for this to happen or maybe it's unitid has changed to one that has.
GE is only a client side application and the LifeTime Maps Eligibility or (One Time Upgrade Eligibility) is recorded on the server.
A bug could not cause this phenomenon ! there must be a logical explanation.
Go to My Dashboard with the nuvi connected to see if it does indeed have Lifetime Maps.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
to dasilvarsa: I connected the 1255 and run My Dashboard: "...you started actualisation of a map but did not finish, change to the map you have downloaded or download once more..." No more information....
