False Elevation Edge 705

I get a wrong elevation on my Garmin Edge 705, it's been working great for months and all of a sudden it shows the wrong elevation, it shows 1957 mts instead of 1450 which is the correct elevation.

GPS elavation


Hello,

The altimeter requires calibration on the Edge 800.
To calibrate the altimeter:
1. Select MENU > > System > GPS > Set Elevation.
2. Enter the elevation, and select the check box.

You may also want to contact Garmin Support for assistance.

I have a garmin edge 705. Every week I ride the same course. When I compare the graph of this same course they do not coincide. The starting point elevation is not the same aldo I always start at the same...


The reason is linked to startup of the device probably. I have same issue.

2 ways to improve :
1/ Startup your device
You need to startup device, and wait automatic change of the screen to the ride mode, from the sattellite search screen.
You also can check you have more than 4 sattellites before starting a ride. Altitude can only be computed when at least 4 sattellites are synchronized. So start your device in the open air, not indoor, nor close to a building.
Garmin devices start automatically and have probably a smoothing function that make altitude converge to the reality slowly from a started erroneous capture.

2/ Upload your ride on Garmin connect site, then apply altitude fix algorithm proposed. This algorithm will fix the altitude of your waypoints, both fixing pure altitude start issue, and also fixing denivellation computation, which is erroneous because of cumulation of errors.

Hope this helps

There is no "climb data", elevation gain when I download to Ascent software.


Hello. you may need to go to garmin.com/drivers and download a new driver into your computer before you use that software again. Joe

OK, There is a battery problem where the contacts become loose within the unit, i opened mine and followed the instructions i got on this site...MTB gurublog If you decide to do so..however if the 305 is in warranty contact garmin.com and ask for new unit... they accept the problem is widespread.

Total elevation gain consistently way too high (20+ percent)


I have the same garmin, and have the same problem.
The high changes even during flat runs so when added you have this overamount of climbing.
I just reduce the points of the track and then the addition is more accurate.
My problem now is that the GPS stops working during runs (turns itself off). Awful!!!

Will the garmin edge 705 provide/ be able to produce a power watt measure during outdoor rides and what do i need to purchase to be able to get this information?


The 705 comes in multiple versions from basic that will give you heart rate to a team garmin version that has the cadence, speed, calories, etc. As for power meters the 705 is 3rd party compatible to show you watt measurements.
The following third-party ANT+Sport-enabled power meters are compatible with the Edge 705:
  • iBike
  • PowerTap
  • Quark
  • SRM

305 Elevation Problem


Sorry to have to break (no pun intended) this to you, but I have had two units do this. Once this problem starts eventually the Elevation field will display and stay at 65616. The problem is with the barometric altimeter and cannot be fixed without sending the unit to Garmin. When you call Garmin technical support, they will have you do all sorts of resets - be patient - eventually they will concede that the unit is busted and give you an RMA. Both times this happened was after the unit got a little roughed up (one time dropped it, the other time was mountain bike tumble) - evidently the altimeter is the least robust part. Good luck.

Elevation Problem


Some models have the Barometric Altimeter which needs to be calibrated, and some units do not.

Vertical Accuracy of a properly calibrated Barometric Altimeter is +/- 10'. If you have a unit that uses provides a GPS Elevation only, a +/- 50' vertical solution is pretty standard.
