    Yeah, who knows? Maybe the cleaning crew needed the power receptacle where the Garmin Connect servers were plugged in, so a brief outage as they vacuumed. Now there might be the LiveTrack service that didn't automatically startup with the server. So we went from some people having consistent LiveTrack success (me) to nobody having success.

      pboos, my experience of the LiveTrack failure would not align with your suspected cause. I do not start LiveTrack manually, I use the "Auto Start" for LiveTrack. Therefore my App is never running in foreground when LiveTrack starts. Mine works on 4.8, fails on all future versions.

        LiveTrack seems to be back online. And I thought let us try the three versions 4.13.5, 4.12.3 and 4.8 To confirm my searchings from before.

        My tests I did on a Pixel 2 running Android Pie. Using AutoStart with a Forerunner 935.

        As expected, 4.12.3 and 4.8 both seemed to work fine. What surprised me though is that 4.13.5 worked as well. Even though 4.13.5 didn't seem to update as often (only like every 3 minutes, whereas the other versions seemed to update roughly every minute).

        Does anyone know if one can get LiveTrack to update more often (like every few seconds)? Or is an update every minute the best we can get?

        Only worked for like 10min. then got No Signal again. Will revert to 4.8 and keep testing on my runs.

            My experience: v 4.13.5 works a few times, then quits mid run and won't work for days, 4.8 works at least once every day, does not quit, but often needs a few tries and long wait (5 mins) to get started initially and show a position.

            I now start livetrack with app version 4.8 and an Epix before I leave, once it works I share the link and keep the session open, then use the FR935 to record activities as normal.

            Not ideal to run with 2 watches, but better than standing outside fumbling with the phone to get a working tracking link.

              4.13.5 doesn't work really, yes. Noticed it after doing a run. Only worked for like 10min (or even less) and then gave No Signal again. Now back on 4.8.
