SOURCE: Garmin Edge 305/GSC10 Cadence and speed sensor

Had the same problem. Here is how I fixed it.
1. Changed the battery in the cadence sensor. (GSC10)
2. Turned on my garmin 305 edge outside to acquire satellites (probably not nec but did it anyway)
3. Pressed reset on the GSC10, saw red/green flash (what order?)
4. Here's the missing step: On the Edge unit, go to SYSTEM.
5. Scroll to bottom, choose ACCESSORIES.
6. On acc. page, go to bottom, under Cadence Sensor, to the option RESTART SCAN. Press That. Now your cadence and speed should work.

SOURCE: recently purchased a edge 305cadenec/heart

Suggest you first try changing the battery in the sensor...then reset, then rescan for it on unit. It seems like quite a few have been shipped with dud batteries.

Good luck!

Cadence does not register on edge 705


This is probably a pairing problem. Device and cadence should be paired. Pairing is often lost when changing battery.

Pairing the Edge 305 and sensors
Once you have installed the Garmin Edge 305 and the cadence sensor they need to be paired. As they communicate wirelessly with each other the Edge needs to connect to each sensor before it can receive input from it.

The initial pairing needs to be done away from other wireless systems this allows the Edge to pick up the sensors it is supposed to be monitoring. This is a little like black magic, but it seems to work quite easily.

The cadence sensor has a small press contact which puts the sensor into pairing mode. The HRM just seemed to connect by itself.

Subsequent pairing is much faster as the Edge 305 seems to remember which sensors it is paired with. If you have problems or need to change one of the sensors then you can use a setup feature to either turn the sensor off or to re-pair it.

I have installed my Garmin Edge Cadense Sensor, followed the instructions and seems like both the crank arm and wheel sensors are ticking and sensing. However, the edge does not seem to receive the...


There are two tests

705 first - settings, ANT+sport, accessories, check that cadence sensor is set to YES

press the reset on the cadence sensor and rotate the cranks - the LEDs should flash every time the magnet passes the sensor. if not its the position of the magent relative to the sensor that needs adjusting.

Hope that works

Cannot get my new cadence(WIND)sensor to work. will aparently teach. Any ideas


No reactions to any buttons:

Reset the training computer by pressing all the buttons simultaneously for two seconds until the display fills with digits. Press any button and set the time and date in Basic Settings after the reset. All other settings are saved. Skip the rest of the settings by pressing and holding STOP.

Polar Cadence Sensor W.I.N.D.

To activate the cadence sensor in your training computer, select Settings > Features > Shoes/bikes > Bike
1/2/3 > On > Cadence > On.
Teach new sensor? is displayed.
• If your sensor is already taught, select No.
• To teach a new sensor, make sure that there are no other cadence sensors nearby (40 m/131 ft) and then select Yes.
After selecting Yes, Start test drive is displayed. Rotate the crank a few times to activate the sensor.
The flashing red light indicates that the sensor is activated. Completed is displayed after the
teaching has been finished. The training computer is now ready to receive cadence data.
To return to time mode, press and hold the STOP button.

Good Luck,
Techjoel

Distance and average speed don't compute.


My solution included changing the battery in the cadence sensor (GSC10). You might not need to.
1. After changing battery, take bike outside. Turn on Edge 305 to acquire satellites (might not be necessary..)
2. Press reset button on GSC10. Should see red/green flash.
3. On Edge 305, go to SYSTEM.
4. Scroll down to ACCESSORIES.
5. On Accessory page, scroll to bottom, under Cadence Sensor, and press RESTART SCAN.
That fixed my Edge 305 - cadence and speed do appear now.
