Cannot activate Software-only Garmin Mobile PC
sledjunk
Does anyone know if Garmin has shut off the server for activating the software only version? I just switched computers and installed Garmin Mobile PC on it. This is the software only version which will work with any GPS. After installation, it asks for the product key but when it tries to connect to Garmin I get:

Could not connect to Garmin server. Check your connection settings and try again.
I believe that the settings on my end are fine.

Any ideas?

I just tried it with a GMPC disk I had on a Virtual XP machine I was setting up and it worked perfectly. You had better check your internet connection or something related. You could always try again...maybe it was just a glitch.

I had tried it a few times and it failed. After I received your reply, I tried again and it worked this time.

Probably the server was down for maintenance or something minor. Glad you got it to work!
