Garmin Edge Software Update Januar 2019

Auch im neuen Jahr stellt Garmin seinen Trainingscomputern der Edge Serie neue Updates zur Verfügung. Die gesamte Garmin Edge Serie (1030, 820, 520plus) bekommt einen Beta  Zugang zum Galileo Satelliten. Außerdem werden für alle Geräte die Smart Notifications erweitert. 

Seit Jahresbeginn ist die weltweite Nutzung des europäischen Satellitensystems Galileo möglich, nach GPS (USA) und GLONASS (Russland) soll die Genauigkeit der Navigation mit Galileo noch präziser sein. Inwiefern sich diese auf unsere Outdoor Aktivitäten auswirkt, bleibt aber abzuwarten.

Garmin handelt in jedem Fall sehr schnell und bietet für Garmin Edge 1030 (Software Version 7.00), Garmin Edge 820 (Software Version 11.0) und Garmin Edge 520plus (Software Version 4.0) bereits eine Beta Version des neuen Satellitensystems. Dazu müsst ihr aber neben dem Software Update auch ein GPS-Firmware Update durchführen, dazu weiter unten mehr.

Außerdem bekommen alle o.g. Geräte Auf Wunsch auch neue Smart Notifications. Neben Anrufen und SMS sollen auch Tweets, Whats App und Facebook Nachrichten an den Garmin Edge gesendet werden.

Im Folgenden eine Auflistung aller aktuellen Software Upfates aus der Garmin Edge Serie.

Firmware Update nicht vergessen

Ich bin kein Freund von Garmin Express, der PC/Mac Schnittstelle zu den Edge Geräten. Aber leider kommt ihr um die Benutzung des Programms nicht herum, wenn ihr das neue Satelliten System Galileo testen wollt.

Neben dem Aufspielen des Software Update des Garmin Edge 1030 820 oder 520plus, dass ihr wie gewohnt über WLAN Zugriff des Geräts installieren könnt, müsst ihr für das GPS Firmware unumgänglich den Garmin Edge mit eurem Computer verbinden.

Dafür ist auf dem PC/Mac die Software Garmin Express notwendig. Nach der Installation könnt ihr den Garmin per USB Kabel mit eurem System verbinden und danach folgt ihr den Anweisungen im Garmin Express Programm.

Vorsicht: In der Vergangenheit führte die Nutzung von Garmin Express im Zusammenhang mit Updates bei Markus und mir häufig zu Problemen.

Garmin Edge 1030 Software Update 7.00

Software Update vom 08.01.2019

Neben dem Zugang zum neuen Galileo System und Smart Notifications  gibt es es eine ganze Liste an Verbesserungen in diesem Update.

U.a. sind endlich die Powermeter und Kadenz Dropouts behoben, kurzzeitig waren immer mal wieder beide Daten weg vom Display. Auch kleinere Steigungen sollen jetzt besser vom System verarbeitet werden,

Changes made from version 6.30 to 7.00:

  • New Beta Feature: Galileo satellites. There is now support to use the Galileo network of satellites to assist in getting GPS fixes.

  • Added cycling dynamics support for 3rd party power sensors.
  • Updated smart notification categories. In the phone settings, social and other smart notification categories can be enabled. This will make the Edge show notifications from other applications depending on how they are categorized by Garmin Connect Mobile.

These categories are off by default and must be enabled to be seen.

  • Completing a segment will now turn on the backlight.

Software Update vom 09.01.2019

Der Garmin Edge 820 liegt zwischen dem 520 Plus und 1030 als willkommene Alternative für Fahrer, die ein leichtes Gerät für den Wettkampf suchen aber trotzdem nicht auf die Routing und Kartendarstellung verzichten möchten.

Das Software Update 11.00 für den Garmin Edge 820 bietet wie auch für den großen Bruder Zugang zum Galileo Satellitensystem und neue Smart Notifications. Darüberhinaus ist die Liste der Verbesserung in diesem Update auch für den Garmin Edge 20 besonders lang. Ein verspätetes Weihnachtsgeschenk :)

Changes made from version 10.00 to 11.00:

  • New Beta Feature: Galileo satellites. There is now support to use the Galileo network of satellites to assist in getting GPS fixes.

  • Added enhanced support for Varia RTL510 radar tail light. As part of this, all ANT sensor processing code has been improved and should be more reliable.
  • Functional Threshold Power (FTP) and Lactate Threshold Heart Rate (LTHR) values should be more accurate and in line with other devices now.
  • Fixed crash that could occur when switching activity profiles in the middle of a ride.
  • Updated the manual activity upload UI. It will no longer be available if the auto upload setting in GCM is disabled, as this prevents GCM from accepting our upload. If auto upload is enabled, it should correctly reflect success when the upload completes.

  • Added UI to inform users of the impact of brightness and backlight settings on battery life.

2006 bin ich zum Radsport gekommen und seitdem von dieser Sportart fasziniert . Anfangs als Mountainbike Tourenfahrer unterwegs, kam ich schnell zum ersten Mountainbike Rennen, zum Leichtbauwahnsinn und erhöhtem Trainingsaufwand. Wegen der Befindlichkeit, nicht wegen der Ergebnisse. Seit 2012 bin ich auch auf dem Rennrad unterwegs. Und es macht Spaß.
