Edge 800 crashes when scrolling through course list

3 May, 2011

And another Edge 800 quirk.

1. When you go to your Course list and scroll up and down (using either the arrows or gesture) the Garmin locks up requiring a soft-reset (that’s holding down the power button for 10 secs)

2. You scroll down your Course list and you have a wacky named course at the bottom e.g. >>c>x>><?>>> (sometimes the characters change)

The problem is a corrupt course file. There is no way to easily work out which one is causing the problem. So you can either remember which courses you added last and remove them from the Courses folder of the device, or remove all the courses (copy them to your Mac or PC first) and then add them back one by one until you find the culprit.
