I got this update a few minutes into June 7, 2018, i.e., like at 12:15am. It is the first update I have had on Express since getting my Garmin Fenix 5 a month ago. I kind was expecting one, so I was relieved to get it.

As I had previously told you, Garmin Express (at least on Windows) does NOT auto-update or provide you with any notification that an update is available. You have to check manually. Which I always do.

 

NOTE. Something I discovered today, prior to updating to 6.0. IF you are getting a ‘Garmin Server Error‘ when using Express it means YOU need to update Garmin Express. Happened to me when I still had 5.9. That prompted me to CHECK for Express updates. As soon as I had 6.0 … all was GOOD.

Garmin Connect — Android & iOS– Is Now At 4.2 (As Of January 13, 2018).

by Anura Guruge



Garmin Connect updated to 4.2 this morning, automatically, on my ASUS ZenPad 10.1″ running Android 7.0.

Smooth update. No issues. Accessed my prior data, seamlessly, as soon as it initalized itself. So far, so good. Noticed that it now ‘flashes’ a ‘device connected’ message when it makes Bluetooth contact.

This update is consistent with Garmin’s recent claim to provide monthly updates — at a minimum — for all of its software.

We were, with Garmin Connect, at 4.1.11 (which was released around December 8, 2017). So, the timing was on the mark.

Interesting that it is 4.2 rather than 4.1.12.

Garmin Express, earlier this week, was updated to 6.0.

So, it would appear that Garmin, in January, starts off with fresh ‘release number’ builds — rather than incremental updates.

Garmin Connect, unlike Garmin Express, should AUTO-UPDATE.

If you do not have 4.2 on your Mobile you might want to force an update.


So, as of Saturday, January 13, 2018:

Garmin Connect — 4.2

Garmin Express — 6.0

Vivoactive 3 — 2.9

Got that?

Garmin Express Is Now At 6.0 (As Of January 11, 2018).

by Anura Guruge



I updated it today, on Windows 7, to 6.0. I think the update was released in the last couple of days.

As I had previously told you, Garmin Express (at least on Windows) does NOT auto-update or provide you with any notification that an update is available. You have to check manually.

Going from 5.9 (December 16, 2017) & 5.8 (November 17, 2017) to 6.0 in January 2018 is consistent with their stated goal of an update a month.

What I still cannot find, to my chagrin, is an update history — so that we know what is new/fixed in 6.0. Why Garmin is so secretive is a mystery.

NOTE. Something I discovered today, prior to updating to 6.0. IF you are getting a ‘Garmin Server Error‘ when using Express it means YOU need to update Garmin Express. Happened to me when I still had 5.9. That prompted me to CHECK for Express updates. As soon as I had 6.0 … all was GOOD.

Garmin Express Is Now At 5.9.0.0 (As Of December 14, 2017).

by Anura Guruge



I just updated it, on Windows 7, to 5.9.0.0. I think the update was released on December 13, 2017.

As I had previously told you, Garmin Express (at least on Windows) does NOT auto-update or provide you with any notification that an update is available. You have to check manually.

I had downloaded 5.8.0.0 on November 17, 2017. So it appears that they are updating Express every month. I gather that that is also the new goal for Garmin Connect Mobile. A new update every month.

Not sure what going up to 5.8 from 5.7 did. I haven’t seen any differences. Maybe it was to add support to the Vivoactive 3.

This was as of yesterday. As I had previously told you, Garmin Express (at least on Windows) does NOT auto-update or provide you with any notification that an update is available. You have to check manually.

Garmin Express Does Not Auto-Update Or Provide Notification — It Is Currently At Version 5.7.0.0.

Garmin Express‘ (on Windows) does NOT auto-update or let you know when there are new updates available. I learnt this to my cost when I installed it on a backup PC. The version installed was newer than I had. Yes, I will confess. I had not bothered to check for updates because I assumed it would let me know. Not so.

So, as of October 2, 2017, Garmin Express is at Version 5.7.0.0.


The Beta Garmin Connect APP I am running on my Android 7.0 tablet claims to be at: 3.22.1.2 (dated 3 Oct. 2017 @ 04:41:12 GMT).

I am going to keep an eye on this to see how often it gets updated.


My Vivoactive HR, per the unit, is at SW Version 4:00. That is what Garmin Express also tells me on a regular basis. I plan to keep an eye on that too.

Hope these software version numbers help.
