Can You Make Garmin Training Center Crash? I Can.

Garmin Training Center crashes. A lot. Here's one of many ways to make it crash (hard):

  1. Set the GPS to indoor mode, biking.
  2. Do a 1.5 hour spin with your heart rate monitor on.
  3. Connect the GPS to your computer. Ask TC to read the data. Did it read? I bet it did.
  4. Quit TC. Start it again. Did it crash while starting up?

My advice to you is to back up your Training Center data. Every day. Note that the backed up files are XML and can be repaired later.

My other advice to you is to create a new Training Center user every month. This way, the slowness that occurrs when backing up data is only for the current month.
Hope that helps!
