What's New in Version 2.0.4
• Worked around iOS 11.2 Bluetooth connectivity issue that prevented Alexa requests from working
• Various bug fixes
Fixed in 2.0.4. Super handy again! Previously: No support for iPhone X yet!
App worked reliably with my old iPhone 6, but since upgrading to the iPhone X, the device is invisible over Bluetooth, and cannot be paired or connected. Same problem may exist with the 8 series. Fix this, Garmin!
Pity, because it was super handy, for Nav and Alexa, playing well with other audio sources, unless you are Navigating somewhere with it, in which case there is no way to mute the vocal prompts and it continuously steps on what ever you are listening to! Fix that, Garmin!
The Nav algorithm was very poor routing around traffic- I am still using Waze.
New iOS 11.2 update works reall well
I can Ask Alexa to ask Garmin to take me Home without having to take my phone out of my pocket. I can control my Thermostat Ecobee 3 and 4, iRobot Roomba and my Sonos Home Sound System from my car now.. as well as use most of my favorite Alexa apps.. Latest firmware update fixed all the issues I after upgrading to iOS 11.2
I originally posted here that the newest iOS upgrade had again broke in the app, but I was mistaken. I did a quick reinstall and it works perfectly. Very happy with this. Thank you Garmin.
