Garmin Express is a software package developed by Garmin and intended to manage Garmin devices from Windows and Mac computers. The software allows users to update maps, update the device's software, upload activities and register products, among other features.
Garmin Express is available for download on Garmin's website for free. After downloading and installing the software, the user can connect a Garmin device to the computer using a USB cable or a wireless ANT adapter, run the program, and do a variety of tasks by following the on-screen instructions. The software automatically informs the user about map and software updates.
After the initial setup, Garmin Express runs in the computer as a background process, so every time the user connects a Garmin device to the computer, the software automatically runs and checks for updates.
