I’m having connection problems to my Garmin GLO, how to resolve?

  1. Uninstall the “Bluetooth GPS” app if you have followed Garmin’s (bad) instructions, and installed it. You do not need it with RaceChrono, and it in fact obstructs RaceChrono from directly connecting to your Garmin GLO receiver.
  2. Make sure you have not connected your Garmin GLO from any other app or device. It allows only one connection at once.
  3. Make sure you have not enabled the “Settings > Expert Settings > Bluetooth fix” setting. If you enable it, your phone no longer connects to Garmin GLO.
  4. If all else fails, you can try to reset the device by first turning it off. Then turn it on, by holding down the power button for 20 seconds. The receiver does a cold reboot.
