    Tips for Pairing ANT+
    Sensors with Your Garmin
    Device

    10 m away from other ANT+
    sensors.
    • Bring the Garmin device within
    range (3 m) of the ANT+ sensor.
    • After you pair the first time, your
    Garmin device automatically
    recognizes the ANT+ sensor each
    time it is activated. This process
    occurs automatically when you
    turn on the Garmin device and
    only takes a few seconds when
    the sensors are activated and
    functioning correctly.
    • When paired, your Garmin device
    only receives data from your
    sensor, and you can go near other
    sensors.

    • Make sure that the ANT+ sensor
    is compatible with your Garmin
    device.

    Putting on the Heart Rate
    Monitor
     caution
    The heart rate monitor may cause
    chafing when used for long periods
    of time. To alleviate this issue, apply
    an anti-friction lubricant or gel to
    the center of the hard strap where it
    contacts your skin.
    Do not use gels or lubricants that
    contain sunscreen. Do not apply
    anti-friction gel or lubricant on the
    electrodes.
    Wear the heart rate monitor directly on
    your skin, just below your breastplate.
    It should be snug enough to stay in
    place during your ride.
    1. Push one tab on the strap through
    the slot in the heart rate monitor.

    Consult your physician to specify heart
    rate zones that are appropriate for your
    fitness level and health condition.

    cardiovascular capacity and
    strength.
    • Knowing your heart rate zones can
    prevent you from overtraining and
    can decrease your risk of injury.

    Many athletes use heart rate zones
    to measure and increase their
    cardiovascular strength and improve
    their level of fitness. A heart rate zone
    is a specified range of heartbeats per
    minute. The five commonly accepted
    heart rate zones are numbered from 1
    to 5 according to increasing intensity.

    Replacing the Heart Rate
    Monitor Battery

    How do heart rate zones affect your
    fitness goals? Knowing your heart
    rate zones can help you measure and
    improve your fitness by understanding
    and applying these principles:

    1. Locate the circular battery cover on
    the back of the heart rate monitor.

    The heart rate monitor contains a
    user‑replaceable CR2032 battery.
    Note: Contact your local waste
    disposal department to properly
    dispose of batteries.

    About the GSC 10
    Cadence data from the GSC 10 is
    always recorded. If there is no GSC 10
    paired, GPS data is used to calculate
    the speed and distance.
    Cadence is your rate of pedaling or
    “spinning” measured by the number of
    revolutions of the crank arm per minute
    (rpm). There are two sensors on the
    GSC 10: one for cadence and one for
    speed.
    For information about cadence alerts,
    see page 9.
    Non-Zero Averaging for
    Cadence Data
    The non-zero data-averaging setting
    is available if you are training with an
    optional cadence sensor. The default

    occur when you are not pedaling.

    body.
    • Warm up for 5–10 minutes.
    • Reapply moisture to the electrodes and contact patch. Use
    water, saliva, or electrode gel.
    • Wash the strap after every seven uses.
    • Wear a cotton shirt or wet your shirt if suitable for your
    activity. Synthetic fabrics that rub or flap against the heart
    rate monitor can create static electricity that interferes with
    heart rate signals.
    • Move away from sources of strong electromagnetic fields
    and some 2.4 GHz wireless sensors, which can interfere
    with your heart rate monitor. Sources of interference
    may include high-voltage power lines, electric motors,
    microwave ovens, 2.4 GHz cordless phones, and wireless
    LAN access points.

    1. Take your Edge out of parking garages and away from tall
    buildings and trees.
    2. Turn on the Edge.
    3. Remain stationary for several minutes.
    Allow the Edge battery to fully discharge, and then fully charge
    the battery (without interrupting the charge cycle).
    Reduce the backlight time (page 40).
    You should see a new removable disk drive in My Computer
    on Windows computers and a mounted volume on Mac
    computers.

    Problem
    My Edge is connected
    to the computer, but it
    will not go into mass
    storage mode.

    I cannot see any new
    removable drives in
    my list of drives.
    My course file was
    renamed.
    Some of my data is
    missing from my
    Edge history.
    I need to replace the
    bands for the mount.

    Solution
    You may have loaded a corrupted file.
    1. Disconnect the Edge from your computer.
    2. Turn off the Edge.
    3. Press and hold MENU while you connect the Edge to your
    computer.
    Continue pressing MENU for 10 seconds or until the Edge
    goes into mass storage mode.
    If you have several network drives mapped on your computer,
    Windows may have trouble assigning drive letters to your
    Garmin drives. See the Help file for your operating system to
    learn how to assign drive letters.
    You can load .tcx and .crs files to the Edge. When you select
    the course for any reason, the file is converted to a .fit course
    file.
    When the Edge memory is full, it will no longer record data.
    Transfer data to your computer regularly to avoid losing data.
    Go to http://buy.garmin.com, or contact your Garmin dealer.
    Purchase bands made of EPDM only.
