"GCP 4.0.1 failure to transfer waypoints"

January 23, 2012  |  By stantastic

 |  Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 4.0.1

Pros

Currently none :-(

Cons

Currently everything :-( Version 3.0.1 was working fine. Version 4.0.1 fails to communicate, even though it says it is.

Summary

Current version 4.0.1 installs successfully, says it's working, shows communication with my 60CSx device, and from any Geocaching.com cache page "says" a waypoint is added successfully, but NOTHING gets transferred. Reverted back to 3.0.1 and IT works. Tried 4.0.1 again and it doesn't. So, back to 3.0.1 -- and waiting for Garmin to release another update...

Or am I missing something?

MacBook Pro, OS X 10.6.8, 2.8 GHz INtel Core i7, 4GB RAM

"Diappointed"

June 05, 2011  |  By ballewa

 |  Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 2.9.3

Pros

None. Provided it would install I could have my map updates

Cons

Won't install.

Summary

I go through the process and get the green check mark telling me that it's installed, but when I try to update my maps it tells me that I have the old version. I check my plugin and it is still the old one and not this one, so it never installed. Very frustrating. I'm using Safari 5.0.5 browser and Garmin says that the plugin is compatible with this version, but I would beg to differ.

"better support for aviation?"

January 02, 2011  |  By Laribij

 |  Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 2.9.3

Pros

I can use my aviation gps, without having to run windows. As far as i know, Garmin is the only manufacturer to do so. At least for the Aera 500 i use.

Cons

They support or don't support aviation GPS's?
from the Garmin site:
Note: Garmin Communicator Plugin for Mac does not support Aviation Databases at this time.
and also:
Added support for FAT 16 formatted cards for aviation updates

"IT helped the loading process a lot more this time"

December 13, 2010  |  By rickster24

 |  Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 2.9.3

Pros

The program helped speed up the program on my EMac and was very successful in updating my Garmin.

Cons

The only Con is that it took time to down load and takes a fair amount of space

Summary

Download it and get over any other issues yo might have. The Garmin is still the better GPS to have and the costs are always changing to buy one of these units. You can always get the latest up to date programs.

"Easy to install and works on my Mac."

November 29, 2010  |  By caroden_dotmac

 |  Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 2.9.3

Pros

Garmin is finally making things work on Macs

Cons

Not completely intuitive and user friendly.

Summary

Works with Macs but I still feel I need to call Garmin Tech Support to get things straightened out and find out why I can't load the complete USA maps.

"Typical Garmin Poor Quality"

November 12, 2010  |  By canyonlight

 |  Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 2.9.3

Pros

None - it won't install.

Cons

This is typical Garmin poor quality. It won't even properly install.

Summary

It's interesting that when you try to install this faulty software, it starts up the Garmin Communicator web test page. The test page correctly tells you that an older version of the software is installed. Duh.

Easy download, no problems, and does all the things Garmin says that it will do.

Works fine, no problems for me using a new Mac and all the latest software.

The Garmin we have worked so well while we traveled through Europe we'd not return without it. Excellent hardware and software.
