Garmin has released Express 7.0.0 so thought it worth starting a new thread for release notes and issues rather than keep the GE 6.X.X thread going.

Release notes as follows:
We’ve fixed an issue where users could continually get prompted to set up WIFI.
Minor bug fixes and improvements.

Cheers.

It seemed to take an age to install.... or maybe it was just my imagination!

What new and exciting things that have nothing to do with navigation have they added/fixed this time? Rolling Eyes Crying or Very sad

GE advises me that there's an update (suspect to Cyclops cameras) but it won't allow me to view details (even after refreshing) - anyone else experiencing this issue?

What you can see now, which it didn't have before, is a download indicator!

Really? Nothing new on mine. If you mean the blue circles with numbers in top right of the device on the home screen they've been there for a while.

I also don't see nothing new, the circles with numbers in have been there for a long time now - it's clicking on the view details that seems broken in this release (used to list the updates and the size of the file such as Cyclops Database - 3.17mb).

I can concur that they've broken the 'view details' for both file and map updates.

7.0.1 out soon ? Smile

Works when your device is plugged in, may be a deliberate change.

What if we want to know what it is before plugging in or whether it's worth getting the unit out of the car. I don't use Cylops so I ignore them.

It worked perfectly OK but some bored soul in the IT department decided to implement a pointless change.

During install there was a brief one second panel with what I think was changes, maybe they should have thought that one out.

Mainly to fix an issue that was causing certain topo map updates to fail Wink

Seems that you can't click to see the map updates as well. So they must have deliberately changed the behaviour (for the worse - useful to see if the update was just a Cyclops camera or something that we'd benefit from updating).
