Garmin Releases 6.00 Firmware for Edge 530 / 830 Computers

I’ve been running the 5.68 beta on my Edge 530 for about a week, and it’s been really solid. As usual, Garmin is doing a staggered rollout, but anyone who wants to rush in (guilty) can try encouraging it via Garmin Express or download (530 | 830) and make things happen the old fashioned way…

I was really hoping that Live Track 2.0 would be in this release, but alas, it’s a no go.

Changes made from version 5.50 to 6.00:

  • Segments
    -Fixed issue with detecting segments that were going in the opposite direction of travel
    -Improved segment and ClimbPro UI cooperation
    -Fixed issues when approaching a segment embedded in a course and other minor segment UI issues
    -Fixed issue where segment virtual partners would claim to be finished almost immediately after starting the segment
  • ClimbPro
    -Improved estimated time to end of a ClimbPro climb
    -Fixed ClimbPro page graph drawing
    -Fixed issue where disabling “Pop-up on Climb Approach” would disable ClimbPro completely
