Garmin has finally released City Navigator 2013.40.My Garmin Express software does not see this update yet but Garmin's MapUpdater does report the update is available. Downloading as we speak.
You can still use MapUpdater, direct link is here: download.garmin.com/lmu/GarminMapUpdater.exe
My maps are two years old. No lifetime maps, no downloads, no mapupdater, no Garmin Express. Life is good. 8)
Garmin Express worked perfectly for me on three different units. With the GPS connected to Express ,highlight DEVICE. in the lower left there is a pane with device opted by default. click on device,the tab will drop down giving you options to install to computer also.
If you want hassle free just use MapUpdater ... you have all the options you need there and at least there seem to be no problems with it :wink:(see links to it in the posts above)

The bummer is that Garmin only links to Garmin Express and doesn't provide a Map Updater link as an option.
A user over on the Garmin Software forums is reporting that Garmin is again posting the Large JCV file on their site. Here is the post: https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php?34677-CN-NA-NT-2013-40-full-JCV-file&p=166419#post166419 and here is the download link: http://download.garmin.com/support/2013_40/NA/JV/D3060090A.JCV Thanks Garmin for once again doing the "right" thing.
Express in Windows has 3 parts - program, tray applet and Windows service. Download is done by service. If you want to completely turn off Express, you should close program, exit tray applet and stop service.Both tray and service are started at Windows start, you can change this in Windows configuration. Then tray and service will be started when executing program Express.
Express saves data in different place on PC than MapUpdater. There shouldn't be conflict with data, but there is no cooperation either, data is downloaded twice.
