    - Made ClimbPro available for navigation to a location and for round-trip courses. 
    - Added a setting in the ClimbPro data screen setup to specify which climbs should be detected (All, Medium/Large, Large Only). 
    - Removed the ClimbPro page from the timer loop if there are no climbs left in the ride.
  • Made improvements to the Segment user experience.

  • Added directional arrows for round trip courses.
  • Fixed cosmetic issues with Extended Display mode.
  • Added additional info to the nutrition/hydration settings page.
  • Turned backlight on when the user laps or there is an autolap during an activity.
  • Automatically sized the text in the elevation data field.
  • Improved overall device stability by fixing crashes and freezes.
  • Looks great but what about the GPS/reception issues I and others have reported??

  • We are still working on a resolution for that reported problem.

  • Finally you have worked on workout page...

  • I don't see anything about BT connectivity issues, Live Track issues, or the above-mentioned GPS reception issues. Probably the top 3 topics discussed in the various threads surrounding the 830/530. Hopefully they're in the works

  • Installed this version today, hoping it would cure the sporadic freezing I'm experiencing. 

    Unfortunately the freezing is still there and worse on the map screen, where you can't scroll around now in the map, it just keeps springing back, very frustrating!

  • "Allowed graphical workout data fields to be configured on regular data screens." Missing the workout step graphic

  • Please disable the constant promting for "Connect to indoortrainer"... It totally annoying it pops everytime the Edge is turned on and sees my NEO2T. However I don't want my Edge to control my NEO. Zwift or Taxc Desktop App does that much better. But declining the prompt just makes it pop up again everythe time I turn on my 830. 

    Very annoying

  • Can we change track colour in this update? Can explain why Garmin not allows to do that ?

  • Good work Garmin.

    Leader priority on Strava was much needed. Will be testing today. Garmin-Matthew is the segments widget now working ? Previously it didn`t show nearby segments. And last bit related to segments - are segments shown properly in Stava Routes IQ app. Last time I`ve checked they were either incorrectly calculated in "time ahead/behind" or didn`t show at all.

    ClimbPro tune up very good. Feature is perfect for me.

    But as others noted please resolve BT connectivity. It`s driving me mad. On several days after setting it up everyhting is fine, then I have to do it from scratch as unit is not linked. GPS accuracy is good for me but sometimes signal is lost without visible obstacles. This is really strange as FR945 which has the same chipset is doing excelent job both in term of signal stability (good even in deep forest, mountains) and accuracy. Same for BT connection which on FR945 is rock solid.

  • I installed the beta, but my 830 restarts continuously!
