I upgraded the firmware last Friday (yeh yeh I know, never update) as the new Garmin Express kept telling me it was out of date. I go to start it for my morning commute, it doesnt seem to be displaying anything. I hit start and it beeps but doesnt display the page I had setup, just the initial screen. I hit it again and it asks if I want to save or discard the ride so it seems to be recording OK. I change activity profiles to another I had customised, same thing.
So I set off without it running, get to a red light and while I am waiting for the green I had another go. I find that the "Race" activity profile works, so I set it to that and continue.
I get to work and have a bit more of a look. The Train profile that I had customised and the "Commute" one I had created have all had their page set to display zero items. I try and reset, seems to work Ok but after save and going back in they are displaying zero items again.
So now i have deleted those activity pofiles and recreated them - if it looses those I will start to get cranky
Anyone else had any similar problems ?

I don't expect odd glitches on a unit that costs as much as it does.

you're not the only one with this problem though - there were a handful of similar reports on the garmin forum, though it didn't sound widespread. my advice for future upgrades would be to check the change notes of the new revision - if there's nothing in them that sounds relevant to you and the device is otherwise ok, then don't bother upgrading.

After saving my ride, i tried to view the summary and it wouldnt load the ride (was annoyed as it was after a race). The garmin was unresponsive while it was stuck on loading the ride, and i had to hold the power button down to turn it off and on to use it. Once i set off for home I noticed that the 'Train' screen had vanished and only the 'Race' screen was showing. At home, i tried uploading to strava, and strava reported that file was corrupt. I reset my garmin to factory settings, and saw there was an update (which i ran) and since then had no problems.
But i have just reminded myself to make a backup of all my screens just incase this does happen again.

I have since started using it with a laptop on which Garmin Express does not exist and I haven't had a problem since. I just rely on the phone connection to upload the rides to Garmin and use the computer connection to charge it and upload rides to Strava.
I haven't updated to the latest update (3.0 I think) because the update notes are... vague.
