Garmin Express Problem

Recommended Posts

I have been using Garmin Express to D/L caches to my two GPS's.  Yesterday it wouldn't work... got this error message. "Request error. Problem with content being sent, Try later." I haven't done anything different.. Anyone have a fix for this?  Thanks..

An update to Garmin Express was recently released to address some security issues. You should have success if you update to the latest version.

I have been having the same "problem with content" for the last 12-15 hours. None of my lists could be uploaded in that time. I tried making a different list - same result. Express says that I am up to date - before popping up the message about a problem with content.  This has happened before - getting to be a real pain!!

Same issue. New version (6.0.0+) of Express did finally solve the issue. However, had to uninstall the previous version of Garmin Express, restart, then re-install the new version - after first install of Express 6+ the Express software wouldn't start even after restarting the machine. I think my song, with regards to Garmin, is "Some day my code will come..."

Same problem, but upgrading to the latest version of Garmin Express fixed it.  Now, as to what happened... since we were all running the same version of GE that worked previously, one must assume that Groundspeak changed the way their API works, and that broke GE.  Of course it could also be that GE made changes that required the API modifications.  Either way, there was no notification to the users other than the error message when we tried to use it.  This has happened before and will likely happen again.  I wish that GE would notify me when they have an update, especially if it is critical to its continued use.  I would also appreciate knowing of API changes that may impact GE and other applications.

I had to do it in a similar way.  The "update" of Garmin Express didn't work for me.  I was able to do it without restarting the computer, but it didn't work until I uninstalled the old version and installed the new.

Same problem here today when trying to copy some new lists of caches to my eTrex.  Garmin does not even give a pointer as to the issue - just that stupid message that says "Request error. Problem with content being sent, Try later."   Tried 2 different gps units so realised it must be a problem at "their end".

 

So kicked the PC, swore at the dog, uninstalled Garmin Express.  Reinstalled (obviously a new version) & everything is hunky dory.  Gee thanks Garmin!  Why not give us a clue?  I had it set for automatic updates so you would think a message would have appeared
