fantastic - good to hear.
How about getting me a new Garmin :)
Not sure if it's connected to the new update but I had to load this mornings ride to strava manually, took ages searching for activities.
yep - yours is borked too by the sounds of it Pat.
I pinched the fix files off Adam. They are useless. There is a Garmin update programme and it cant even detect the 500 as a usb device.
Im just waiting for the next firmware update.
How often does Garmin bring out Firmware updates?
AVO phoned me with a suggested fix, he had a similar problem. Delete any courses from the Garmin and it should allow the auto upload. I'll try it tomorow and let you know.
yep - made sure all my courses and activities were gone before the firmware update.
Not to steal your thunder Patrick but after a frustrating week (after the upgrade) after reading your post I deleted the 'Courses' and the 500 now uploads automatically. Thank you Ball Boys.
Worked fine for me too this morning Derek. Thanks AVO :)
I did the factory reset this morning - and seems to be working again!!
Make sure you havn't got dozens of rides in the activies folder.. I clear mine out monthly and it speeds up the initial search
After putting off updating since the update was released I finally did it. All went well but now when I went to upload my ride it hung for ages (like 12 hours) so I had to do a master reset and now seems fine. I did remove courses and delete activities except today's ride to make it faster as was Garmin's recommendation.
Nothing ever works properly with firmware updates! Maybe I should have read through this post more thoroughly before doing it.
