  1. Hi Alex,
    what a fabolous idea – it works – but there is one bug. The %FTP-values are transferred as fixed watt-values to garmin connect (80 % FTP in the workout on ergdb becomes 80 watt on garmin connect). Is it possible to fix this? That would be great!
    Thank you,

  2. Following your instructions and using a Garmin Edge 520. When I start a workout I get negative power targets, example -957 to -953. Where is the FTP % computation performed?



    1. Hello zjdieterle, Actually we just send a percent of FTP to Garmin so the actual Watts is calculated by Garmin, you must have your FTP set correctly in Garmin Connect. I tested again today and everything is working fine, and I know this is working fine for other issues so really this should be something you just need to configure. Negative watts sure sounds strange though.

      1. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the training screen in Edge 520, 820, 1030, 830, 530. Target power is correctly calculated and if instead of the training screen there will be a data field “target power” it will work well. Unfortunately, the scale of the training screen will be with minus values, for example -910 …- 900 or, for example, -872 …- 858.
        Examples in shared screen shots (Edge 1030 in Polish;)): https://photos.app.goo.gl/URg6vxRdzuNtPBUG8
        Solution of the above-mentioned problem of incorrect scale on the training screen? Report to Garmin support;) – and for now, I suggest to introduce the possibility of sending the target power, which has been defined in ERGDB.
        What’s more, if there is such a possibility, I would ask for the possibility of setting not just the target power, but the average target power, e.g. from 3 seconds or 10 seconds – to choose from. This will reduce the number of messages with too little or too much power when training outside, on the trainer it is easier to maintain a constant power, but here too, the narrow range is exceeded.

        Regards, Leszek.

        1. Hello Leszek, I use a Wahoo so I have not really tested this other than my watch. I just ordered a 530 so I can fully test this. I understand what you mean and this should be a fairly easy fix/improvement. I will let you know what I find.
