I have 3 Garmin products registered. Yesterday I wanted to update my lifetime maps. This is a normal process using Garmin Express. This time I got an error message. I tried several times. Decided to reload the application via the Garmin wed site. Did so. However now Garmin says that Garmin Express is not compatable with my Operating system. I have a HPG60 running Microsoft Vista. It was compatable until now. I do not want a new operaring system nor do I want to buy a new computer just to support their application. They have change their rules from when I purchased the unit. This will become a big issue as people are moving away form computers and laptops towards devices such as iPads and do not want dole out money just for garmin. This morning I emailed via the Garmin web site looking for a solution to support their original agreement (Nov 5 2017)

One thing you need to understand

AUTHOR: MacaroonX - (United States)

Because Microsoft has already ended Windows Vista OS version support, there is no obligation for any software venders to support the version. Of course, this is why some people moved away from any Windows software because of the OS kept changing too much. Though, it is not really a rip off but rather the evolution of OS and software. Sadly, the ones who would have issues are customers...
