Bug List (GCM 3.19, W10M Build 15228)

Hi, I would like to introduce a new thread list that should collect all bugs for a given GCM/W10M combination.

Known issues:

- Battery drain (big issue, GCM is using more than 50% of battery in background)
- Bluetooth connection is lost way too often (also if phone is lying nearby)
- Watch is not reconnecting automatically when lost Bluetooth connection.
- When a notification is received on the phone and the watch is not connected, GCM reconnects to the watch but does not push the received notification.
- Sync is not reliable, especially when an app should be installed
- it happens sometimes that GCM shows a successful sync (green bar) but the data was not transferred from the watch.
- Music controls do not work at all (always waiting for connection to the phone). If the music control widget opens and has connection, it is not possible to start music.
- impossible to download Golf course from mobile phone (always waiting for connection to the phone)
- impossible to sync more data than the first screen (=actual day) on Fenix5 (always waiting for connection to the phone)
- app crashes on startup and need to be started a few times. Sometimes only a phone reboot helps.

Please post your problems and I will update the list so Garmin has an overview of what issues we are facing.

  • I am still on the earlier build, so can't add to the bugs list yet.

    However, in terms of working functionality and bugs, I will note that GCM installed on an up to date Windows 10 Pro PC works perfectly. Same App, different deployment. Frustrating.

    Anyway, back on topic: Bugs.

    Are you on Creators Update or a previous version? In case it is a previous one we can create another thread for this combination of GCM and W10M.

  • I have the problem that data is synced, but not my activities.

    Might this be the issue that sync is shown as successful but data is still missing?

    I am on the Creators Update, yes, but an earlier version than 15228. I don't think we need a thread for my version, as Garmin know it is broken and are apparently working on it. W10M Build 15228 or a later version will be available to all soon enough, I hope. Hopefully a new version of GCM. I just posted so I will be notified of updates, and to point out GCM works properly on W10.

    I was going to say all my details are in my signature. But I can't see my own signature anymore unless I am logged out of the forum, and I can't see anyone else's signature. It seems that Garmin can't even get the vBulletin software to work properly after this upgrade. Gives me much less hope about GCM.
  • I have the problem that data is synced, but not my activities.


    It happens quite often, but not all the times.

    I should add, that if I have two or more activities a day to sync, the 1st one will sync normally but not the following ones.

    This sounds like the issue a lot of people have, where the sync seems to be completed (green bar) but not everything is synced. This issue is already mentioned in my list at the top.
  • Wanted to reply, but my account on this forum hasn't been working for 2 days.

    Now it works, I wrote a reply, but the forum was giving me the error: "Error while saving content: SyntaxError: Invalid character"

    So it seems there should be a session on the forum to discuss of the problems of the forum, too :(
  • I?d like to ad some other issues (Bug List (GCM 3.19, W10M Build 15228 - L950XL; Fenix5):

    Golf activity:
    - impossible to download Golf course from mobile phone (always waiting for connection to the phone)
    Weather app:
    - impossible to sync more data than the first screen (=actual day) on Fenix5 (always waiting for connection to the phone)
