    "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 5, 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 2, 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

    "Communicator works great"

    December 26, 2010  |   By jsamtak

    Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 2.9.3

    Pros

    Quickly uploads data to website. Works great with Safari and Garmin Connect.

    Cons

    Haven't had any problems

    "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.

    "Works Great"

    December 29, 2009  |   By banks59

    Version: Garmin Communicator Plugin 2.9.1

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Summary

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