The existing Garmin Fenix 5, 5S and 5X have JUST had GALILEO support rolled out in beta. It doesn’t yet appear to be available for the Forerunner 935 but will surely follow in due course.

To be clear: This is NOT the Garmin Fenix Plus (review ed here) series. It’s the regular 5 Series

This is beta software and it’s race season…update at your peril. But, yes, I’m going to 🙂

My understanding is that this is single band GALILEO…so hopefully it’s better than GPS-only but there are hopefully more improvements to come in future watches. Fenix 6 anyone 😉

Full details of the beta release are shown below and here are the links…enjoy! :

Double check your GPS version is v4.40 (mine is v.4.4 even on the FR935…which hold out hope for the same GALILEO upgrade on the FR935)

Changes made from version 9.20 to 9.53:
