The Garmin company is widely known for its GPS navigation. Additionally, it provides various products for the automotive, marine, aviation, outdoor and sports markets. If you are using one of the Garmin products, it is likely that you use the Garmin Express app for Mac to manage your Garmin devices.
In this post, however, we want to highlight another topic. If you want to delete Garmin Express on your Mac because you wish to clean up your computer or for any other reason, read on to learn how to uninstall Garmin Express on Mac.
Remove Garmin Express Manually
All Mac users are likely familiar with the uninstallation method of dragging and dropping an icon to the Trash. However, if you want to remove the Garmin Express Mac application from your computer, this method will not delete the app completely. Due to the fact that every application creates service files on your disk, you will want to delete these service files in order to entirely remove an app. Usually, the service files are stored in the user’s Library folder. This folder is hidden by default to protect critical system files from accidental removal. Nevertheless, if the Garmin Express app’s executable file has been deleted, its service files are useless and you can freely delete them. So, to remove Garmin Express from your Mac manually, take the next steps:
- Quit Garmin Express.
- Open the Applications folder in Finder → select the Garmin Express.app and drag it to the Trash.
- To get access to the user’s Library folder, open Finder → in the menu bar click Go → Go to Folder → in the window that appears, type ~/Library and click Go.
- Within the user’s Library folder, find and delete all unneeded service file srelated to the Garmin Express application. Check for them in the following subfolders:
- ~/Library/Application Support
- ~/Library/Saved Application State
5. Empty the Trash bin to complete the full removal of Garmin Express from your Mac.
