Garmin 550+ s*&^ the bed


Recommended Posts

I really like the idea of the 550+ collar and have enjoyed mine...when it works. More often than not, the collar and remote won't connect. I've chatted with Garmin so many times and the answer is always "we're pushing and update tomorrow!". Usually this will breath new life into the unit for a week or so then it's back to not functioning. After the latest update failed to even do that they finally agreed to replace the handheld portion. Anyone else have a 550+ that is hit or miss at best? My buddy works in a bike shop and apparently their watches and biking units have been terrible lately as well, they got hacked not long ago and he's thinking that has a big part to do with it.

Wanted to get one so I will follow this thread.

That said I do run an Alpha. What really pisses me off about that unit is that I use my MAC to update my transmitter, but have to find a PC for the collar! Someone had his/her head up ass when setting that up! Joined local library to access a PC just prior to COVID so still waiting to update collar!

I use a separate Garmin setup for training.
