Garmin 840 new distance PR not

I deleted all the old rides on my 840 but one, a 102 mile ride. Yesterday I rode 60 miles and got a new distance and TT PR. Has anyone had the device do this? Is there some setting gone amiss?

You can transfer your existing records to your new garmin. I forget how exactly (I think its through Garmin Express) but my distance record was recorded on my old 1000 and at some point I transferred it to my 1030 and 130+. I had to do similar with my speed records.

The 100 miler was recorded on the 840. That’s why I questioned the new record announcement.
60 is less than 100. Just a weird glitch I guess.
Possible an update scrambled its brain.

Maybe. I delete my Garmin’s memories often, particularly my older units, they’d becone incredibly slow and buggy if you didn’t, and Ive never lost a record. Perhaps look at the Garmin Connect web site under "Personal Records " to see if the correct activity is there. If it is click “Send to Device”, which will sync it via Garmin Express to your 840. Good luck!

Funny ….on that it shows the 100 miler as the longest.
Weird that the device would tell me I had a new distance PR of 60 miles.
Strava shows longer but that was when I had a 5 series.

try doing what HLaB said:

“Send to Device”

Ok thanks everyone
