Garmin Express 6.0.0.0

 

It is now available with new device software 5.60

Zeros

Any software version that ends in "0" makes me wary.

A software version that ends in 0.0.0 scares me off entirely!

I'll wait.

Maybe your concern is well founded, but since the last many releases of Garmin Express have been increasing the second segment by .1, it seems that 6.0.0.0 is the next logical release number. (5.5.0.0 ... 5.6.0.0 ... 5.7.0.0 ... 5.8.0.0 ... 5.9.0.0 ...). I suppose they could go with 2 digits as in 5.10.0.0, but 6.0.0.0 is just as logical.

Do whatever you are comfortable with, but the 6.0.0.0 release number does not make me wary in the least.

It would be nice if we had a summary of the updates for any version. 6.0.0 is not to be missed and will download. For this update, most changes apply to things like fitness watches. Here is the Change Log:

Change Log:
Added support for Rep Counting during Strength and Cardio workouts which can be created on Garmin Connect Web and Garmin Connect Mobile. To enable Rep Counting, ensure that Settings > Activities & Apps > Strength > Rep Counting is enabled. Start the timer to automatically count reps during sets. Press the lap key to rest between sets. You can edit the number of reps and weight for your last set during a rest period. Press the lap key to advance to the next set.
Added support for All-Day Stress. To view the Stress widget, hold the Up key from any widget and select Add Widget > Stress. You can view your current stress measurement on the widget page. Press the enter key to view a graph of your stress over the last four hours. Press Down to access the Four-Fold Breath relaxation timer.
Added support for setting up Wi-Fi Networks on device. After syncing with Garmin Express or Garmin Connect Mobile at least once, go to Settings > Wi-FI > Add Network to search for Wi-Fi networks. Select a network. If the network is secure, enter its password to join it.
Added support for manual calibration of the Barometer. (Settings > Sensors & Accessories > Barometer > Calibrate)
Added support for Hourly Alerts. (Settings > System > Time > Alerts > Hourly)
Improved device key handling while using Connect IQ apps.
Improved the course navigation icons for better visibility and contrast.
Fixed an issue causing Varia UT800 Smart Headlights to periodically disconnect or power off during a ride.
Fixed an issue causing the Running Dynamics Pod to disconnect when using Connect IQ Apps.
Fixed a potential issue preventing a course from being joined when not joining it at the start.
Fixed a potential issue causing Personal Records to be reported inaccurately.
Fixed an issue where the device would not transition to the climb screen while using Auto Climb in certain situations.
Fixed an issue where the sunrise and sunset alarms were not working as expected.
Fixed an issue where the elevation plot for a single activity in a multisport activity would display the elevation history of the entire activity.
Note: There are language files and a sensor hub update that is available to all users

GE update

I guess I will update. I usually wait to see if there are any issues with the updates.

Change Log may not be for Garmin Express 6.0.0.0

I believe the above referenced Change Log is for Software version 6.00 for the Forerunner 935 and not for Garmin Express 6.0.0.0.

Thanks

Thanks for letting us know about the update. I would not have known about it except for reading it here.

Hope it doesn't install automatically

But I don't seem to have control over that.

Forced to Update...

Even though 'Never' is selected for the 'Checking for updates' option, GE still checks for updates automatically and it won't let you do anything else but click on the upgrade button on it's pop-up notification.

The privacy selection for 'Sharing Data' seems to be fixed and retained now.

Yep

If it's deemed by Garmin to be an essential update you'll be forced to accept it, although there is a work around to this but only worth it for those with older systems that won't run the latest versions.

Minor updates won't be forced upon you.

I don't update that often.

When I see a release 6.6.6 is when I will worry smile
