Garmin Edge 500 set up question

Postby booge » Thu Feb 21, 2013 8:21 pm

Got a Garmin Edge 500 today, cheap with no manual. Found a manual online but still doesn't answer my question. During the set up phase what "position format" do i choose? I've seen another forum question regarding this but the position format they were told to choose isn't on my device. Apparently choosing the correct position format will give you the correct time

I believe the position format is how latitude and longitude are expressed. You can leave it at the default which is hddd mm ss.ss (degrees, minutes, seconds). It doesn't affect time-of-day settings.
