Garmin IQ Tip: Just updated the firmware?

Garmin IQ Tip:

Just updated the firmware?

Give your watch 2 restarts after firmware update, yes two! Also restart the application that installed the firmware update, too.

Why restart? A firmware update usually contains many different updates (gps, bluetooth, ANT+, Wifi, and all the other sensor hardware, too. To complete these updates usually takes more than one restart to enable the individual updates.

Also prevents the IQ install error, “This app requires an update of your fēnix 5S. Please use Garmin Express to update your watch”

So, Update and Restart!

  1. Dear Sir/Madam,
    I bough your app package last year. But after firmware updating, they changed into trial version.
    Should I purchase them again as their name acquire “Plus”?
    I’ll wait for your reply.

    • No, your code is good for the life of the current watch. Just reenter your code and the app will unlock. If you purchased a new watch, i ask to purchase a new code.
