Garmin Edge 500 Question

Postby Rik on Thu 5/Dec/13 10:28am

I've got a Garmin Edge 500 running firmware V3.0. And ever since I sent it back under warranty to get a button fixed it doesn't have a power on beep. I'm sure it used to have a power on beep before I sent it away. Was I just imaging it?

Does yours beep (well actually its more of a dibble-eep) when you turn it on?

Mine is blue, but it doesn't beep like it thinks its a red one. Do you think it knows its on a red bike?

Magic - I tried the suggested change setting/restart sequence and it worked, my Garmin is now happily oblivious of its colour. Thank you

The original one will wait about 5 minutes to drop its guts after you relax and sell off the replacement :huh:

I've cracked the LCD screen on my 500. Still works, beeps, uploads to Strava; I just can't read the screen. The outer casing is fine.

Does anyone replace the LCDs?
