Garmin and Giant Ridesense

Postby ADF_Sutto » Thu Nov 03, 2016 7:26 pm

My ridesense on my propel has decided it doesn't want to play the game anymore.

What I've done to try to fix it-

1. Took out the battery to reset the ridesense as per change,
2. Changed the battery for a new one as a low battery can stop it connecting while still flashing change,
3. Reset the my Garmin Edge 520 to factory settings and re-configured to my set change.

Stuck with ideas and to which one is being the pain. Anyone whose had this issue before please let me know what you did to get it working.

Make sure the speed/Cadence option is enabled and take the head unit off the bike and put the head unit right up close to the sensor and spin the crank (it should flash which will indicate its ok and its just a pairing issue). It should pick it up if the magnet is in the right place.

I've gone through 3 or 4 Ridesense before giving up with each lasting around 1 - 2 years.
If what you've tried didn't work. It's dead.

I've gone with the Garmin speed and cadence sensors in the end with my last Giant.

This is my post for same issue a few years back:

Just out of curiosity, is your frame size XS or S?
