My garmin 945 is not recording distance accurately when open water swimming. When comparing to a friends 935 the distance is completely off. It doesn’t track when I swim back on myself. Any advice?
It's an old sad story...
It happens with almost every Garmin devices, i have reported many times to beta teams but seems that simply they don't care about it... . I have to use a Suunto 9 for my open water swim or use distance correction with Strava.
I have just spoken to Garmin's support and they suggested me changing some settings:
1) check the version of the GPS on the 945 (5.40)
2) Change the frequency of the data sent during open water swimming:
Go to settings> System > data recording
Change from "Smart" to "Every second".
Don't if u tried this, just in case you haven't. I will do some ocean swim tomorrow and let you know if it worked. Let's see....
