TRIAL MODE / Disabling the Automatic App Update

I have be receiving many questions with apps reverting to Trial MODE “RED BAR”.

This is due to the Garmin Policy to reset the Setting file that holds your email/and unlock information.

If this occurs, just re-enter your email (code if needed) in the App Settings.

To prevent auto-matic updates and unexpected Trail Modes, Turn OFF automatic updates.

How to turn off Auto Updates:

Garmin Connect Mobile – Select the watch in the Top Right, then select “General”, then Unset “Auto Update Apps”.

Garmin Connect App Store – Select the watch Top Right and then Unset, “Auto Update”.

Garmin Express – Select Tools & Content Uncheck, “Auto-Update Apps”.
