I hadn’t used my ‘Garmin Fenix 5 Plus‘ for 20-days. I was instead wearing an ‘Amazfit Verge‘ with a very pleasing AMOLED display.

Yesterday, when I went back to the Fenix 5 Plus, the first thing I did was USB charge it on my PC. While I was at it I fired up Garmin Express to check for updates. There were NONE! I was surprised. I expected there to be one. Nada.

So, today I went looking. OK, there is a 6.51 beta, released on December 17, 2018, but per the Change Log it only has one bike-related fix.

Hhhmmm … I am surprised and disappointed. I had expected that Garmin would have rolled out a slew of fixes and some new features. Maybe it was the holidays. Stay tuned … What else can we do. Try to contact Garmin? That was a JOKE.

Downloaded automatically, without I even noticing it, when I plugged my Fenix 5 Plus into my computer on Friday night, November 30, 2018. Couldn’t have been a large download. By the time I fired up ‘Garmin Express‘ it must have been already downloaded because I did NOT see it updating on ‘Express’.

Only realized that there was new software once I unplugged the USB-cable and a message came up about the new software that has been downloaded.

Have not noticed ANY changes, whatsoever, as yet.

I went looking for what changes had been made. Refer to 3rd image above. I am NOT blown away. Nothing that applies to I. Hhhmmmm. I am sure they fixed various ‘small’ issues that they are not telling us about.
