I just got a g3 powertap and was wondering what the reason and results of using the non zero cadence setting on the garmin for power and cadence is.

Non Zero avg. simply means that any cadence, or power below zero will not be factored into your avg's for a ride. Kind of like using auto pause for speed so as to limit the effects of stoplights and such on your avg. speed.

I personally recommend including zeros for power and excluding them for cadence.

I only want to know how fast I'm pedalling when I'm turning the cranks. Power, you need to know the real average.
