  • Fixed an issue where the device could register a speed spike during Ski activities.

  • Fixed an issue where the device will crash when trying to manually connect to an ANT sensor after enabling Airplane mode.

  • Fixed an issue with golf maps drawing incorrectly after the last beta update.
  • Fixed an issue where the map would intermittently stop updating during an activity.

We have temporarily removed in-activity data field editing in this beta. We have identified a few bugs and while they are difficult to reproduce, we do not want our customers to experience these issues. When these bugs are resolved, this feature will be added back in to software.
