Anyone tried the 3.68 beta? Looks like it's finally solving most of the problems.
Changes made from version 3.60 to 3.68:
Fixed power and cadence spikes over ANT+ and BLE
Prevent pedals from getting unintentionally unlinked
Fixed right sensor missing error appearing during a coast
Fixed power spikes due to missed messages from the right pedal
Fixed large balance drop outs
Fixed issue where power would go to 0 Watts over BLE
Fixed power spikes while coasting over BLE
Fixed power spikes when BLE connects while riding
Fixed potential cadence spikes after a short coast
Improved pedal wake-up detection
Improved communication to Garmin Connect Mobile

3.60 has been mostly fine for me so I don't feel like being the guinea pig here.

Wow, that's a big bug fix list.

That comforts my decision to have gotten rid of mine 6 months ago.....

You know what... kudos to garmin for actually detailing all the bug fixes though.

Most companys would have just written "performance improvements"

Yeah, but when you're paying a grand for a product like that, you kind of expect it to work out of the box, well I do anyway...maybe I'm just getting old!

My new Garmin 530 has been super buggy too, I was a heartbeat away from sending it back.

I've never had an iphone as buggy as my Garmin 510. 99% of the time I haven't noticed any problem that updates fix on my iphone.

My iOS devices crash to a black screen with the spinning throbber while the Springboard app restarts itself way more often than my Garmin Edge devices crash, though there is a total-time spent and complexity component too.

Don't get me wrong; i've never regretted going for the assiomas instead, even after I had to RMA my right pedal.
