As a customer of Garmin, you should ask them to publically document
the update protocol so that Linux folks can reimplement their Windows
updater. You should also suggest that they offer the firmware files
separately to the Windows updater so that it is possible for Mac/Linux
users to do updates.

That doesn't look helpful.

I would guess you need to blacklist the garmin_gps module and or
disable the udev rule that gives you a tty device, reboot and then run
their Windows updater under Wine/CrossOver.
