Split long course

Garmin got bug when the Course is longer than 180 KM as my experiences, and it caused self reboot during recalculating. So I have to split the course into smaller segments, and this is also improve the loading time. Anyway, Garmin Edge isn't a fast computer.

In order to load the next Course into Edge without stopping the activity, the following steps can be used

  • Touch the screen
  • Tap on Home icon
  • Tap on Navigation
  • Tap on Courses
  • Tap on the Course to load
  • Return to Home page
  • Tap on the round activity icon on top of screen to back to activity screen if needed

If the activity is on, the power button will lock the touch screen. Otherwise, will off the screen.
