Hi guys, are there any changes in the 2.3 version about the authentication?
I had to delete all the previous garmin navi versions, so now it's a fresh new install. And I seem to have problems with the editing of the host file (to block the garmin app), it does nothing, so my new version of garmin is dead. Any ideas? Thanks!
