Garmin 500/800 NP, IF, TSS firmware update?
Quote | Reply
Per the release information from the Vector, Garmin is providing on screen NP, IF, and TSS in the 500/800. Anyone see anything on when this firmware update will be made?


http://garmin.blogs.com/...e-with-vector-1.html


Get an ‘Edge’ on the competition: For users already using a Garmin Edge® 800 or Edge 500 cycling computer, adding a Vector power meter will take their training to the next level. Not only will the Edge display total power, left and right leg power, and cadence, it will now also display in real-time the widely adopted power metrics from TrainingPeaks™: Normalized Power (NP ™), Intensity Factor (IF ™) and Training Stress Score (TSS ™). The Edge 800 adds a new interval summary page to enhance the power-based training experience.



Edited to add the page with updates. Nothing yet. http://www8.garmin.com/..._details.jsp?id=4715

i had read the firm was was end of september but that hasn't turned up.

i did get to play with the vectors though, with a garmin edge 800 with the updated firmware (firmware date was 16th of september or something)....

I do want NP, TSS etc, as i do wonder why at the end of intervals im buggered, but then when you see the NP for an hour is around by FTP it makes sense!

I just updated my 500 last night and was really hoping for NP and TSS, but it was not present as an option :(

the latest 500 firmware is from May which explains why no NP yet

Yeah, at InterBike they initially said 500/800/310XT by end of Sept, but then corrected that to note that it was going to be 800 first, then 500, then 310XT - all happening pretty quickly after one another. I suspect we'll see the 800 update in the next week or two, then from there as announced.

There was a bit of 'all hands on deck' related to some of the 910XT stuff in recent weeks, likely diverting some resources temporarily. I suspect that'll continue until 910XT public release.

Hope this update comes in the near future, I'd love to have NP, etc, for IMAZ in four weeks.

Update just came in for the Garmin 800 firmware. 500 not ready yet.

Here is a view of my screen:

Wouldn't only NP change how you raced, and really wouldn't make much of a difference unless the course was hilly?

I hope this fixes the bug on the 800 where it displays "_ _ _ _" as your accumulated elevation gain once you pass 10,000 ft climbed in a ride.

You could always switch to metric units. You'd have the benefit of showing more than 3 times the elevation and join the rest of the world in the 21st century. Plus, as an added bonus it always sounds like you're going faster!

From what I understand, instead of displaying "-------", it now displays "Get off your bike already, 10,000' in a single ride is absurd".

Yeah, eventually I will. I hear the US will be switching to metric by 1990.

Anyway, applied the update and at the activity totals report screen shows the elevation gain. Won't know about the live display until next time I head to the mountains.

The Edge 500 and 310XT will be next.

For those looking for a boatload of screenshots, as well as all the data fields added, see this post.

Also note that it's not just TSS/IF/NP added, but also the new lap summary screen - which is pretty cool, very joule-like. And left/right power for those PM's that will support it. And the ability to now store up to 5 bikes in the unit.

Hi- great information on this thread, thanks!

Can you tell me if there is a way to review "Peak Power" for 5s, 30s, 1min., 5min., 20min, etc. during the ride like there is on the Joule?

No, previous rides are not calculated.

No, previous rides are not calculated.

But you should be able to download that information into software like cyclops poweragent to get the data you are looking for.

I saw that the 800 will store 5 bike profiles.

Do you know if the firmware update will allow the 500 to store more than the 3 it currently stores?

Suffer Well.
