This update will clear your history and settings if you are not already on the second software update (20.58) because we have to re-partition the flash memory to make room for certain features. There’s actually a manual procedure for backing up and restoring your history and settings if you want to go through the effort to retain your data.

Change Log

  •  Improved overall system performance including button press reaction time and menu system navigation.
  •  Improved accuracy of Instantaneous Speed and Pace measurements.

    When’s the next software update? The distance and pace accuracy on this last update didn’t help much – very frustrating!

    • Hopeless as well
