Anyone else having trouble with Garmin Connect?   I accepted a software update a week or two ago and now it's freezing every time I try to plot a new course. Annoyingly, it doesn't seem to allow you to save a course incrementally, so I'm spending ages keying in a route then, at about 120km, I suddenly get the spinning pizza wheel of despair and the only way I can stop it is to exit Safari and lose the lot.

I didn't even know that it was possible to plot a course in Garmin Connect.

I've been missing out.

All functionality that I use seems to be working just fine.

Garmin Connect on your computer (website) or are you referring to your phone?  On my Samsung Galaxy S8 it is working fine. Polar Bear course creation is at https://connect.garmin.com/modern/courses.

Edit: Just tried it using Chrome on my Mac ... 167 km course no problems.

You're really not.
There are many better routing sites available.

No, you'll need to save the file to your PC and then open RWGPS and use upload and it should save it as a route (it can get a bit confused depending on the file and think it's your ride but if that's the case then just click on save as a route and delete the ride). Once in RWGPS you can check it over, make any edits you like and then export as per instructions above.
