Garmin 500 won't read Ibike Newton Data

Garmin 500 won't read Ibike Newton Data

Postby Abu Jack » Wed Jul 15, 2015 8:35 pm

Yesterday my Garmin 500 stopped reading my Ibike newton. I've been using them together for years. Yesterday the 500 just stopped reading data. I was at a local crit and it showed multiple sensors and then just stopped reading any power data. I tried it with my wife's garmin 500 it would find it either. It's almost as if the Newton dumped the GT firmware. Any suggestions. It seemed like it would pick up other riders I rode with today, but when I got my bike home and tried it where I know there are no other power meters around it wouldn't read anything. Thanks

Your GT FW is intact.

It sounds like, somehow, your Garmin became paired to a different power sensor.

At home, make sure your Newton is on, spin your bike wheel, then perform a pairing process in your Garmin setup menu.

Hopefully that will do the trick.

I tried that both with my own Gamin 500 and my wife's(never used power). It wouldn't pick up the Newton power data on either garmin.

Do the following:

1) Connect your Newton to Isaac

2) Go to "Edit/Edit Profiles..."

3) Click the "Extract from Device" button. Your Newton's profile will be highlighted in the window

4) Click the "Export..." button

5) Save your profile to your desktop

6) Attach your profile to this thread

I fixed it. I guess the garmin must have picked up a powermeter at the last crit I did. I rescanned for sensors on the Ibike. The dfpm showed as off. Then I turned on the Garmin and it read the Ibike. Back to normal.
