  • Wifi connectivity problem

    Hi all, is anyone else experiencing WiFi connectivity problems? It started recently with 5.10...I've updated to 5.53 beta yesterday. Then I correctly synced via WiFi once...and today I got problems again. Sometimes it tells me it's not able sync....some other times I got code 500 error. Anyone else?

      Actually it seems to be able to sync just right after I do sync first with Garmin Explorer on pc. But right after the first successful attempt then it starts again failing transfer.

        I have the same problem (Code 0500) and it happened right after I synched via Garmin Express. The main firmware did not update during the update only maps and other things.

        Any suggestions besides restarting the watch and synching via the phone?

                  Same for me and it popped out of a sudden; no former update. Currently I'm on 6.58beta

                  IIRC I read in another thread that Garmin is aware of the problem and they are trying to fix it. No big deal for me so far because BT still works...

                      If you need Wi-Fi more than you need BT, this post from Brychu worked for me.
                      In the last 12 hours or so I havent been able to sync via wifi, is there some known issue although connect status website is all green? I’ve removed and

                        I had this problem with wifi uploads. I noticed that if I go to Settings -> Phone -> State (press to Not in use) and after that wifi connects fluently!
                        (I noticed that my Garmin watch tries to connect to my phone but if it is not available (for example as I try to save battery and disable bluetooth). So that disturbs wifi connection attempts! So there must be a flaw is software (prioritizing bluetooth vs. wifi).
