Good. I'd noticed the Smart Link app wasn't staying connected after I updated my phone to iOS 11. Maybe this will fix it.

Well that's good to hear, Dave. Hope I'm as lucky. I had another glitch recently, when I upgraded my iPhone. I no longer have access to Advanced Weather on my GPS (through the Smart Link app on my phone). It wants me to make the in-app purchase again. Obviously something didn't get transferred when I switched to the new phone. I sent an email to Garmin support, a couple of days ago, but have heard nothing yet. Of course, I could just buy it again for $5, but it's the principle of the thing (and it'll be December in less than 24 hours, so it's not like I'm riding long distances).

Hmmm, just how far are you going for that $5 principle?? Actually it's just getting into riding season down here.
