I've been on holiday for over two weeks (including running the New York Marathon!) and only just set up ,my third 620 this morning.
I'm hoping for an improvement but I'm not optimistic. The prior ones occasionally found a signal immediately but 5-6 minutes was the average and sometimes over 10 minutes. Not nice in the winter when you're standing shivering waiting to go on your run.
I remain of the view that these are great devices when working but that Garmin flood the market with shoddy products with little visible effort to improve well known faults.
But does anyone else suffer the reliability problems i do? Or am I just unlucky?
ive had about 12 and spent around £2,000. I got through three 610's and have just had my 3rd 620 from Garmin.
Problems - slow GPS locating, screen freeze, watch dying on me, erratic and sometimes nonsensical distance and pace measurement, and perhaps most annoying - reverse charging. The reverse charging is a known issue on the 610 so I was astonished when it happened on my first and second 620's.
How do Garmin get away with flooding the market with fundamentally flawed products? Their return rate must be enormous as I alone have had 7 610/620's
