More LiveTrack woes

Edge 1000 - forums.garmin.com
Sadly, this topic is revisiting an earlier moan for me

One of the really cool things that I like about my Edge 1000 is the ability for it to send back a LiveTrack feed to my wife when I'm off solo riding. The website is a little clunky, but it does at least show her where I am on a map...

...or at least it would, if it ever bloody worked :-(

When I first got my Edge 1000, LiveTrack was pretty much non-functional. It was improved during the early firmware updates (and corresponding fixes to the Android app) but as of now, it's back to pretty much non-functional again.

The most common error I get is "could not start LiveTrack", but more often that not, it looks to be working fine, but the position doesn't update from the starting point.

My configuration:

- Edge 1000 - Wifi + BT on

- Phone - Wifi + BT on

- Phone - Auto-start LiveTrack enabled

- Phone - Strava Beacon Enabled

I've read that some people are manually disabling Wifi on both phone and Garmin before starting a ride to allow the LiveTrack to cleanly start. This will probably be my next move.

Does anyone else have any other magic suggestions?
