I was hesitating between buying the Garmin Edge 500 and the GB-580P.
I finally went for my budget and bought it on on Amazon for $122, free shipping
For me, the sole purpose of this GPS is mountain biking.
So, I went for a ride this weekend, here is my first impression...
The GPS had a hard time with speed, even thought i wasn't moving, the GPS always had me at a speed of 0.1-0.5 km/h.
I had full GPS signal.
Is it possible to have a better fix that that ?
Altitude didn't seem accurate also.
Cadence had spikes that were not accurate.
At the end of my ride, I wanted to stop tracking, but I created a unwanted lap, how can I delete that ?
I installed the software (Training gym pro I think), but it doesn't allow me to do much. I need to export my ride as GPX and it doesn't seem to do that. I read that SportsTrack can work fine with this GPS, but do I really need to pay $35 to use my GPS ?
Where can I buy extra bike mount ? The mount will most likely break on a good crash, so I would like to have some spare parts in my backpack.
The instructions manual is quite slim for all the feature that the GPS can do, can you direct me to a better place that explain in great depth the potential this device ?
I have a Cannondale RZ-one 2011.
So i tried to set the speed sensor low on my Lefty.
Doing this way, the magnet is on the disc brake.
After riding for 5 minutes, I had cover about 1500 km!!
I think that the sensor didnt like the fact the magnet rotation was to close to the sensor, so I disable the sensor for the rest of my ride.
So I have to setup the speed sensor on the rear wheel.
Anybody has it setup there and does/should it function correctly ?
I am running firmware 1.02.
Thank you all for taking the time to answer my post.
