Cyclops Updates

Post by dhwalt »

Zumo XT2, Basecamp, GE 7.22.1.0
In the last year Garmin Express, the MacOS version, has not found any Cyclops updates. This after checking that the Cyclops install is OK and giving it a few refreshes. Swap to Win11 on a desktop PC and the Windows GE version will find Cyclops updates and install them. Does Cyclops work with MacOS and what do you do to make it work?

I use a Mac (M1) and Garmin Express does find Cyclops updates for me (I have an XT rather than an XT2 though) - I would suggest deleting Express and re-installing to see if that makes any difference. Hope you sort it.

Thanks for the information.
Using Android File Transfer I removed the POI folder to my iMac desktop.
Disconnected AFT > XT2 and restarted the XT2.
Reconnected iMac to XT2, started Garmin Express and checked account login was OK.
Back to downloads and had a Cyclops update waiting -1st time in 12 months!!
Download completed but GE crashed on install.
Connected AFT and found the updated POI folder i.e. all files were current date rather than starting from March 2023.
Back to GE and restarted without a crash.
Give it a few days and I will recheck for Cyclops updates.
