Garmin Express is the software required to install Garmin maps and software updates on your devices. The updates are released several times a year and should be installed for the best experience of Garmin Devices.

Map Updates - Map updates help you stay updated with the latest routes, streets, and locations of the map installed on your Garmin Navigation device. Map updates can take a bit longer to get installed as the map files are large and consist of detailed information.

Software Updates - Software updates are to improve the performance of the Garmin device by making changes to the operating system files. These updates are comparatively smaller in size and hence takes less time. Once the software updates are downloaded, you need to reboot your device to finish the install.
