Re: PM5 firmware update and HRM issue

Thanks....

replaced the battery in fall 2017. So I'll give that a try. It just seemed odd that it started the day I upgraded my PM5 :-) But it seems unique to me, so it's probably the Garmin and not a firmware glitch.

PM5 firmware update and HRM issue

Hi there, I've updated the firmware in my PM5 this past month (there were 2 updates) and ever since, my Garmin HR monitor is spiking. It seems reasonable for me for the first one or two intervals, but then during rest intervals, where I tend to increase SPM but not effort, it spikes. For instance, m...

Re: ErgData cannot connect to my bluetooth heartrate monitor

Thanks! I am using a garmin strap which only connects via ANT. The folks at C2 sent me a souped up PM5 and every time something crashes, I am supposed to look at the lights on the back of the PM5 (there are 2!) and record a little diagnostic program. I don't mind doing it, but it got kind of annoyin...

HRM and Ergdata

I have been struggling with my HRM (Garmin chest strap) and Ergdata freezing. I even upgraded my phone to see if that was the issue. Now I am thinking of either switching to Rowpro, or getting a different HRM. What other HRMs do people use that connect to Ergdata? I have an apple watch, but I am not...

Re: ErgData cannot connect to my bluetooth heartrate monitor

Thanks I am still having issues. The only time I haven't was when I was using a new phone that hadn't been registered with my carrier. Everything was flawless. So for me, that means there is interference somewhere. I am using a garmin strap. I'm so tired of stopping and starting I might just go back...

Re: PM5 looses Bluetooth AND Ant+ connection

I've been dealing with this issue for 6 months.(see above) I thought it was my phone (iPhone) so I upgraded. Still had issues. Worked with C2 people and never quite got anywhere. Then I started thinking about the times it did work (mainly when I got the new phone, but didn't register it with the car...

Re: PM5 looses Bluetooth AND Ant+ connection

UPDATE -

Switched out the batteries in the PM5 and then rolled back the firmware to whatever was the last stable one... 22? Anyway, the beta firmware seemed to be the culprit.

Worked fine after that.

Re: PM5 looses Bluetooth AND Ant+ connection

This same thing is starting to happen to me. I had no problem for a year, and the past few weeks, I am loosing bluetooth connection to my iPhone and my Garmin HR.

Re: AM vs PM workouts

Thanks for the ideas. I suppose I could pull it off if I had time to have a snack/coffee - but then I am losing a bit more sleep. House full of teens/young adults means late nights. The bit about the vertebral discs was interesting. It makes sense. My lumbar region is so sensitive in the morning tha...

AM vs PM workouts

Hi there, I am going back to the Erg after a winter/spring of compounded illnesses. Blech. So I am looking at this as 1- a way to concentrate on correct form and 2- changing my workout schedule to the morning before work. How do people Erg in the morning? Any hints? I am all over the place in terms ...
