Can't connect to the Garmin Servers or Garmin Express

Post by doby_mick »

Hello!
I just received a Zumo XT. All is great except that I can't connect it to Express (I get this error: This device is not compatible with Garmin Express). If I try to update it directly through the Wi-fi network I get the "cannot communicate with the update server" error. It seems that my device can't communicate with the Garmin Servers. It seems like my unit ID is somehow blocked. Is this possible? Can it be fixed? I also wrote to the Customer Support and after lots of enquiries and questions they said that my case was forwared to their US collegues. Unfortunately after 2 week still have no answer from them. Pls help.
Thank you!

I had this problem when I first bought my XT about 8 months ago, I thought great, what a waste of money. What I did was completely uninstall GE and then re-downloaded (is that a word) it, then it worked as it should. This worked for me.✌️ BTW I use a Mac

it has just occurred to me, after writing in another thread.

when I bought my XT it would not connect to my Mac, I thought to myself, OH bugger now what, but what I did was completely uninstalled GE, quite easy on a Mac, and I downloaded it again from Garmin and then all was well. just another idea, you've got nothing to lose, there's nothing saved in GE.✌️
