You use Garmin Training Centre to create workouts

Is there any way to set the power zones on the 500 without doing so through the software that came with the unit?

...and how does one change the max HR? I've been through the menus, but obviously missed it. Ugh.

From memory, via Garmin Connect (connect 500 first), go to "settings" (top right hand corner) and "Training Zones"
one thing though, i could nt lower MaxHR without first lowering all the previous ones first
you then click Save and "send to device"

GTC says there is only one road in my city, which is the major highway that passes by. It doesnt have any city streets, or all the country roads that I ride on. are maps downloadable or is this software truly absolute garbage? I cant even upload the routes from my 500 as they are 'incompatible'!

rg try using http://connect.garmin.com, I think that is what you want to see in way of maps.

That's what I'm doing now :thumbup:

I guess all GTC is good for is creating workouts

Well I've drunken the Edge 500 koolaid. So far it works pretty awesome anally nicely with my Macbook Pro. I was able to adjust my zones but just went in and edited them in the Training Center and then upon syncing it was loaded into the Edge.

For those of you who have used Garmin Edge 500 and Powertap cpu unit,

What does the Garmin has that the PT unit doesn't have? altitude?

Forgive me is this has been addressed before, couldn't find it though.

I can view activities on the unit and in Garmin Connect but when attaching .fit files to an e mail the files are either not showing up or are very small/no data (eg 9KB file attaches for a two hour ride).

Any thoughts?

Thanks very much.

Thanks

I have a 305 with cadence and hr now and am getting a 500. If I want the HR, can I use my 305 strap? Are the head units the same for the 500 (with or with out HR) ?
Thanks

I really like to buy this device but primarily I will use it for heart rate/ speed instead of gps. Does the garmin edge 500 record beat to beat heart rate data (R-R). And: does firstbeat athlete analyses the heart rate for EPOC/ TE calculation?
