IOS 9 upgrade messed up Smartphone Link app display

 

I upgraded my iphone 6 to OIS 9 as soon it came out. The only surprise was Garmin Smartphone Link app. Now when you open the app, you cannot see much on the icons, it is all white.

I am surprised that Company like Garmin will not test their app on IOS 9 betas and release an upgrade before hand like other companies did.

This is just a display problem, once I go on the road then I will check if this app works or not.

Update to iOS9

I started updating at 11:00 AM MDT using iTunes under OS X 10.10.5

I updated an iPad3, an iPod5, and an iPhone5. The three took a total of just under 3 hours as many users crowded in.

I am liking the improvements so far.

After upgrading to IOS 9, Smart Link app still works for you? Very strange. I called Garmin, even they had same problem as well on iphone 6.

Surprised

I'm surprised that you guys would make the leap so quickly. I have learned from experience to wait a while and see what the reviews say and user experience is. In fact, I was none too happy with the upgrade to IOS 8 as it trashed the music player, a very important feature to me. Point being, I am quite hesitant to do OS upgrades whether on my iPhone, my Android phone, or my Windows desktop.

Go to Setting>Cellular,

Go to Setting>Cellular, scroll all the way to the bottom. There is a new setting there that is ON by Default. WIFI assist. It will use Cellular data when the WIFI signal is low. This means it will use Cellular data when you don't realize it, and if you are on a low Data plan you will burn through a to of data you didn't realize you were using.

It appears that IOS 9 upgrade varies with the hardware type. All iphone 6 users have same problem like me but looks like iphone 5 has no issues.
