My Garmin asks "Firmware Update"

Wikiloc App for Garmin asks you to update the firmware but you already have the latest version?

Some Garmin devices have firmware's version synchronization issues.

Try upgrading the watch with Garmin Express application.
Once inside, follow these steps:  Express Software, Register, update and sync your device with Garmin Express  

If it continues asking to update, we recommend you to follow these steps:

  • Windows:
    1. Plug the GPS device into the computer
    2. Open the Computer
    3. Open the Garmin drive
    4. Open the Garmin folder
    5. Delete the GarminDevice.XML file
    6. Eject the GPS device from the computer
    7. Power on the device
