    Edge 305 Cadence Problems

    Tonight, the Garmin went gaga on me. It would register RPM's if I was out of the saddle, but once I sat down to spin, it went to 0 RPMS. I went into the accessories, and started the cadence scan several times with no luck.

    Has anyone ever had anything like this happen to them?

    Thanks!

    I've had something similar...

    Have you checked the battery? With sitting and spinning, you're usually at a lower crank speed than when you stand and hammer. If the battery is getting really close to dead, the added zip of stand and mash might register (faster crank arm = more signal for the sensor), but the sit and spin might not.

    I'd suggest swapping the batt and re-setting the sensor.

    Pedalling hard maybe twists your crank to the point it gets closer to the sensor. I'd ensure your cranks are tight, then re-adjust the magnets. Possiblity you pedaled so hard one time that your crank actually contacted the apparatus and moved it.
