Garmin Edge 500 firmware issues

Every bloody time... So I just upgraded my Garmin firmware to v3, and now the bloody thing thinks it's moving all the time. Picking up the rotation of the earth, are we?

Anyone else experiencing this problem? If so, is there a fix other than rolling back the firmware to v2.8?




You might want to read this about upgrades....

Although I have the firmware you refer to and don't have any such 'drift' issues. It's quite normal when you stand still for any decent length of time that the signal will 'drift' around due to the accuracy of these things. Eg.... you might look to have moved in a small circle. If you go inside then maybe that circle would be larger than standing still outside.

How far does it say you are moving? If it's 100s of metres that's a bit suss.

I had several issues with the upgrade. If you don't need all the new power related stuff, I strongly recommend rolling back to v2.8. I managed it by googling for the old version - someone was hosting the file I think.


It seems to have sorted itself out now. Weird. Thanks for the tips anyway. I'll be watching it closely from now on.
