The new Garmin Edge 510 is a reasonably compact GPS-based bike computer that can work alongside a smartphone to provide interesting features like LiveTracking – where your family and friends can follow your position and performance online.
SRAM's Quick View Computer Mount is a simple and sturdy mount for a Garmin, Quarq or Bryton computer that frees up space on your handlebar or stem by placing the computer out in front of the bars. Not the first to market this idea, there's now several on the market, as we discovered in this article of alternative Garmin mounts.
Evening all. The rechargeable battery in me Garmin seems to on the blink, it's not holding it's charge seems to getting unreliable...
Has anyone had the rechargeable battery replaced? Did you have it done at a local jewellers or posted off to Garmin?
Just joined the forum so excuse any protocol muck ups.
I have an Iphone but am thinking of getting a Garmin so that I can get a SatNav and GPX compatibility. I want this to go on long journeys and not be constantly stopping. There's also the battery life thing.
I'd be really interested to see if anyone has any views
I've created a course for my Garmin 200. I tend to head out on a particular road, then ride a loop which comes back to that same road, which I then ride in the opposite direction until I reach home. However, for Garmin, this seems to be a combination of 'loop' and 'out-and-back' course types.
I've created the course as a loop, but when I hit the road to come home, the distance stops increasing, so my course isn't complete. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Basically my girlfriend and I both have GPS units. I have a Garmin and she has a Bryton. We have supposedly downloaded all the latest software off the respective websites, but when we try uploading the information to a Mac the remote drives disconnect. Apart from the disconcerting messages about damage to the device it is incredible frustrating. When I upload to a PC I have no problems. I used to be able to use Windows on my Mac (using parallels) to upload, but due to a software update this is no longer possible.
