I have a 4iiii podiiiium left-sided powermeter (R8000 175mm) that I'm having issues with.
The problem is power and cadence dropouts on my Garmin -- it's working fine with my wahoo head units.

First I bought a Garmin 1030, but the dropouts where fairly regular there. I was able to return the 1030 unit as I read people where struggeling with similar issues.
I then bought the new Edge 830, but I'm still experiencing the same type of dropouts. On my ride today I had 4 or 5 dropouts in the first 10 minutes of my ride.

For reference I'm riding a Canyon Aeroad in size 56 using the integrated aero-cockpit with Canyon's own head unit mount.

I just updated the firmware (1.20 > 1.30) using an iPhone. My Android app never prompted me to update the firmware, so this may have helped, but I haven't had the chance to test it yet.

Anyway, is this something you guys have experienced? It's obviously pretty annoying.

Are you pairing the PM via the same protocol on both the ELEMNT and Edge units? They both accept BLE and ANT+.
