Garmin 800

by big mick   February 11, 2012  

How do i calibrate the wheel circumference 700x25c into the Garmin 800 or does it set itself using satelites? Ive tired all ways to sort it but cant.The hand book has no mention on the matter.

You don't need to set anything, just turn it on and go.

Downhill bikes don't make you cool.

It uses GPS, it doesn't need such information as wheel circumference measurements. Smile

You need to lay your bike on its side when you first turn the unit on each time. This gives the satellites a clear view of your wheels, allowing the unit to calibrate itself for whatever bike you are riding that day. Once the unit has gained a full signal you can pick up the bike and just ride.

Menu > Bike settings > Bike Profiles > your bike > Bike Details

Set your wheel size there

then Menu > Bike settings > Bike profiles > your bike > ANT+

to pair the sensor
