Update Garmin Without Express

Posted onby admin

When I launch Garmin Express 2.1.13, I get the message 'A new version of Garmin Express is available. We will update it the next time you launch the application.' Well, I have shut down GE, relaunched, and continue to get this message. I restarted the computer, launched GE, and I still get the message. Click Check for updates to Express. Click Install Now if prompted. The latest version of Garmin Express can also be downloaded and installed from the Garmin Express page. Current Version of Garmin Express for Mac: v7.5.0 as of April 29th, 2021.

The Garmin Lifetime Updater program is a free application which is useful for those who own Garmin navigation devices.


From within the application, users can decide when new map updates are to take place. For example, you can let it download the apps during the middle of the night or any other time of the day or week. Download schedules can be personalized.


One of the main uses of this program is to get 'lifetime' upgrades to your maps, but the lifetime designation is misleading because you're not actually given unlimited access to map updates.

If you're one who purchased a Garmin license to upgrade for the device lifetime, you are actually allowed to update your maps up to 4 times per year, or quarterly.

Do note that under the license agreement, Garmin may stop providing maps if its 'supplier' ceases to provide updates or if your device breaks.
