I have a Garmin 500 which I use as a headunit with the SRM.
Is it possible to use this combo on a Turbo and still get power, speed, distance and cadence?
Would the SRM and Garmin Speed/Cadence sensor work along with the SRM or would I need a PC7 with sensors?
Any help appreciated.
Otherwise no problem using a powermeter with the Garmin as a headunit on a trainer.

Your SRM reports cadence so you really dont need the Garmin Speed/Cadence sensor, only an ANT+ speed sensor such as Bontrager, Ciclosport BlueEye III, or a VDO Z-Series speed sensor mounted so as to record speed from the rear wheel.

Yeah it will. Trust me on this, 8 weeks straight on the trainer has taught me well
You also can edit the ride and untick the 'stationary trainer' box.
It was just that I had heard that when using the Garmin cadence/Speed sensor (of which I have three), the 500 will only accept cadence from that unit and will ignore the reading coming from the SRM.
Have any of you guys used this setup by chance?
The Garmin's will listen to cadence from the crankset based powermeter over the GSC10 cadence if both units are present on the same bike.

What the Garmin accepts/records depends on how you setup the speed sensor when pairing with the Garmin. Once paired, go to Settings -> Bike Setup -> Profile # -> Speed/Cadence -> More Details and you will see that there are check boxes to select between Spd/Cadence, Speed, Cadence. If you highlight/select Speed, then search, once the GSC10 is found/paired, the Garmin Edge 500 should then record only speed.airwise wrote:It was just that I had heard that when using the Garmin cadence/Speed sensor (of which I have three), the 500 will only accept cadence.
