  • Although this software is believed to be reliable, it has not yet been released for production and should be used at your own risk.

  • Fixed an issue with 12-speed gear shifting systems.
  • Fixed the Indoor Trainer 'Remind Me' prompt to ensure it does not prompt again if the user declines the reminder.
  • Changed the trainer resistance data field title to Grade for better clarity.
  • Modified the prompt for LiveTrack auto start timeout to occur at most once per activity.
  • Fixed an issue with ClimbPro where some short climbs were not detected.
  • Fixed layout issues introduced on the Bike Lights widget.
  • Fixed an issue that caused POIs to show incorrect bearing and distance.
  • Only show Grit and Flow in the activity summary if they are valid.

  • Fixed an issue that could keep the device from fully entering suspend mode.

Changes made from version 5.10 to 5.24:

  • Indoor Riding Improvements
    - Added the ability to set system time using WiFi or Bluetooth when GPS is not available.
    - Added a Free Ride indoor trainer mode that enables the trainer to be set to a target grade.
    - Added a 'Remind Me' prompt for the trainer search.
    - Made a change so LiveTrack is not started automatically for indoor or virtual activities.
    - Prevent light network from forming indoors.
  • Elevation and ClimbPro Improvements
    - Added grade coloring to the elevation chart.
    - Added grade coloring for segments.
    - Changed the Time to Destination data field to show estimated time to the top of the climb if ClimbPro is activated.
    - Fixed an issue with cumulative ascent and ClimbPro not working properly when a course is transferred from Garmin Connect.
    - Fixed incorrect category colors on the ClimbPro page.
  • Made Mountain Bike feature settings available in all activity profiles to allow for Grit, Flow, and Jump data metrics to be enabled if desired. These remain turned off by default for all non-MTB profiles.
  • Added the ability to configure the minimum ride length that should prompt for Nutrition/Hydration intake.
  • Added the ability to customize the activity track color on the map.
  • Fixed an issue where GPS satellites were lost more often than they should be.
  • Improved Bluetooth friendly names to include BLE and BT so they can be distinguished from each other.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause unit-to-unit transfers to fail.
  • Fixed an issue with OSM roundabouts giving incorrect guidance.
  • Fixed an issue where the Course Creator out-and-back was not working properly.
  • Integrated the ability to use cached weather data for Firstbeat analysis.
  • Updated the turn review map page so the distance on the top left of the screen updates and the data field on the bottom left shows Heading.
  • Made OK the first response for LiveTrack and Text Message response prompts to minimize interaction while riding.
  • Improved the Reset HR Zones and Reset Power Zones behavior to only reset the zones and not the Max HR value or FTP.
  • Made it easier to switch between the month/week view in the Training Plan calendar page.
  • Fixed the alert sound not working when a workout is complete.
  • Fixed false level of timer precision on Garmin segments.
  • Fixed handling for long course names.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the device to lock up.
  • Fixed ANT+ shifting data not being correctly written to FIT files.
  • I submitted a bug report via email about my weather radar widget not being able to display images downloaded from the internet.  The app worked fine on previous versions of FW on my 830, but it appears that on this beta, it just hangs during the download.  I tried on my wife's 830 with FW 5.10 and I see error -1006, unable to process image.  The same code is working fine on the my Edge 1000 and multiple watches.  The last FW I remember it working on with out issue was 5.00, so I suspect something for crossed with the makeImageRequest() in these later FW releases.
