  • Fenix 5x Memory Full aka Cannot Save Activity or duplicate an APP

    Hi
    on my 5x i running latest beta 7.56 starting today i was not longer able to save any new Activity. There were about 350 Activities on the device. After deleting about 50 of the older ones, i was able to save a new Activity again. So my question is there a limit of Space? Free Storage is about 6GB on the device.
    The Activity was totally lost.

    Also i am not able to duplicate an existing app, as it always get a message that it is not possible to save a new app. I should try to delete a Profil and then try again.

    Did you try to add a duplicate app through the "green + add screen, or by copying the activity within the chosen app settings?::::::::::::::::
    There is a limit to the activity storage as you found out :-)
    but I don't know what that is?
    I think the watch is supposed to delete the oldest activity when full, to allow you to save more recent ones,but that didn't seem to happen for you.
    At least all your activities are stored online.
    The 6Gig is partitioned just for map storage.

      Hi nobodynowhere0815,

      The watch should automatically remove old activity files to make room for new ones. How often do you sync your device with Garmin Connect? If you don't sync often, that may be what prevented your watch from clearing space for your new activity.

      Thanks,

        Hi
        Thanks for the quick Response
        About the Saving of a new Activity.
        I sync with Garmin Connect Mobile and/or Garmin Express frequently. With the mobile Version surely every day.
        None of the old Activities were removed because i bougt my watch in september and the oldest Activity is from September.
        What is the space for Activities?
        About adding or duplicating apps.
        I tried with the green + add screen.
        I can add an app that isn't available on the app selection, but i cannot add an new one, or duplicate an existing one.
        Something seems to be not ok with my storage space.

        Also i noticed one or 2 weeks ago, a problem by sending a course to the watch.
        Garmin Express was not able to sync that course.
        After a few tries it finaly was sent to the watch.

        just to tell

        thanks Gerald

            I added the hike app to the default apps, select it, hold up, scroll down to "copy activity" and got the same message that i should try to delete a profile to save a new one.
            I have actual 22 apps in the selection, incl. 3 favourites.
            German Language as 3 favourite

              Hello
              Problem seems to be solved.
              After deleting some of the older Activities, i am able to save new ones again.
              Can someone tell the total memory for Activites?

              The Problem with the duplictating Apps is also gone.
              I removed some of the Apps with Garmin Express Mobil (Connect IQ Apps) and install them again.
              Now it is possible to duplicate an existing App.
              Is there also a Limit an what Limit of free Space is required?
              Thanks
              BR Gerald
