Guidance Text not updating

Post by steerage250 » Sat Jan 05, 2019 2:45 am

I set up a test route around my neighbourhood and followed it (on my bicycle). It generally worked as expected, however after passing through one particular waypoint, the Guidance Text retained that waypoint name, yet the Distance to Next was counting-down correctly to the next manoeuvre. After making the next turn, the Guidance text updated correctly to the next manoeuvre. I repeated this test for the same result.

I repeated the route with exactly the same result.

Reported to Garmin.

Did you send them the route (gpx file) and inform them which point had the issue?

Yes I did - along with the tracks and a photo of the screen as it was misbehaving (my posting here was an edited version)
