Garmin Fenix 5: Beta Firmware Ver. 9.53 Adds GALILEO ‘GPS’ Support — And That Is BIG.

Click to ENLARGE. From ‘Garmin Forums’ at:

Just announced today. Pretty significant in that Garmin now offers Galileo ‘GPS’ on the just released Fenix 5 Plus family.

Though I have not experienced it myself (or more to the point know any better) a LOT of people have been complaining about GPS issues with the Fenix 5 — though mainly when trying to get GPS in cities with a lot of skyscrapers blocking the signals. Galileo is said to have a ‘stronger’ more ‘penetrative’ signal. Hence the excitement.

But, remember this is a brand new BETA and Garmin just rolled out Firmware 9.20 just this week. So tread with caution. I thought about it and decided that I will wait. {Smile}.

Well, I wanted to make sure that I shared this with YOU.
