Changes made from version 3.20 to 3.50:
- We have made changes to prioritize ANT+ connections in the sensor search UI and highly encourage anyone having sensor or phone connectivity issues to remove and reconnect all of their sensors.
We recommend using the ANT+ connection on a sensor with your Garmin devices. There are no customer facing benefits to using the BLE connection unless that is the only option for the sensor to be used and there are often additional features to be gained by using ANT+ with a Garmin device. We see the main customer benefit of a BLE connection on a sensor to be for usage with indoor training apps running on smartphones, tablets, or home desktops at this time.
- Fixed a connectivity issue that could cause ANT+ or BLE sensors to lose connection and never reconnect.
- Fixed an issue with Bluetooth communication that was impacting phone connectivity and device power down stability.
- Fixed a shutdown that could occur when calculating a route.
