I don't understand why you're selling it then - why not just return it?

Also, the Edge allows you to specify the number of fields on the display while using it, I'm sure the Cyclo does too. Maybe just have it show one or two things so you can actually read them.

ppl tend to speak up about negative things more then positive... I don't have a lot of negative things to say about my Edge1000 so far either. It's been a hell of a lot my consistent then my Edge 810.

OK, fourth ride and no doubling of distance. I did all my pauses manually and everything seemed to record just fine. Not 100% sure it's related but I'll keep trying.

Is there anybody, anywhere out there, that has anything good to say about this thing. Thank you.

I don't have one, but I will say that Garmin has a history of this. The first releases of all of their cycling products are full of bugs, but over the course of the next year they will come out with a series of firmware updates that will fix it.

So last night I had a different problem. My ride seemed to record fine, but after I performed a sync, the data showed up correctly on the Cyclo site but the numbers were off on Strava. The mileage was higher and the average speed was like 25 mph!

I'm going to give it another week or so, but if I keep getting these weird problems I may just return it and go back to my Garmin 500. I really wanted the mapping feature of the Cyclo but I can't have my data being inconsistent. I refuse to pay what Garmin wants for their product.

OK I must be missing something. How do I turn a recorded ride into saved track? I can't figure this out?

that's why it's doubly confusing to me that future products seem so buggy.

Have you tried Dual Eyewear? Google it - it's the solution for us oldie eyes.

4.1 was released in Europe so I assume the rest of the regions will follow soon.

Saw the distance issue again this weekend. If 4.1 does not come out soon and if it doesn't fix the issue I'm returning my unit. I only hope they will give me my money back.

Curious. Is the distance like slightly off or is it way off? And is that the only issue you're having? Thanks.

The distance doubles.

I haven't had success with downloading a gpx file to the device and having it follow it very well. But I admit, I've only tried it once so far.

Yeah, that would be very annoying and a deal-killer. My concern is that Magellan doesn't seem very concerned with the US market if a patch is available but only made available to Europe. Kinda tells you where they place their priority. The device itself looks great but I'm still hesitant at this point.

I have submitted a support request. I'll let you know what they say.

Does anyone have any new news on a update for the 505? I want to buy one this weekend but like everyone else has voiced... I would like the garmin sensors. Any recommendations on the best place to buy the unit and sensors?

I received a repose to my support request, which directed me to install the desktop client. This client "detects" whether or not your device needs updates (among other things). Between firmware, software and maps, mine needed 4. I completed the updates and so far so good. I will continue to test and post feedback here.

It had TBT before the update, and it has worked for me, but I've only used it once.

I understand now that the TBT can be taken off after the update.

OK? But why would you want to do that?

Before the update the 1000 wanted to send you to a shorter route when following a self made route. To take it off you can follow the route without getting any popups. It seems to be solved now.

Ah now I see the confusion. My posts are about the Magellan 505, not the Garmin 1000.
