What settings should I use for my Edge 520 Plus, 530, 820, 830, 1000 or 1030 with Garmin Power Courses?

Garmin Power Course and TCX Power Route files allow you to load your Best Bike Split race power plans onto your Garmin devices to use during your races. When running during a race, power alerts will pop up at the bottom of your screen to indicate the proper power target based on specific latitude and longitude points along the course. These courses must be manually loaded to your Garmin device as Garmin Connect does not yet support power alerts.

Before starting, make sure you always have the latest firmware installed on your device.

Data Fields for All Edge Devices

We recommend the following data fields when using Garmin Power Courses on your device. These settings will help guide your actions as power target alerts are prompted.

  1. 3 Second Power Average
  2. 10 Second Power Average
  3. 30 Second Power Average
  4. BBS Power Target (ConnectQ)
  5. CRS. Pt. Distance (not available on all devices)
