Calibrating head unit

Postby shaw6417 » Sun Sep 19, 2021 11:29 pm

Hi guys

I have decided to try and do some indoor cycling and have linked my Elite turbo muin,and the misuro b+ sensor inside of it too my garmin edge explore.

However the issue i am having is that it is giving the wrong speed,i am hand cranking it and i am going over 30mph. So after some research i needed to change the wheel size, if my serial number is greater than 30 i divide it by 13.2 right? Well my s/n was 07174 which bring me too 543.4 i entered that on my wheel size and its better but still not correct. Am i using the correct formula,for my garmin edge explore please.

Thank you very much

Hi

There are some inaccuracies in what you wrote.

About serial number and wheel circumference setting on Garmin:
- trainer serial number < 30000 -> you have to put your wheel circumference in the setting
- trainer serial number > 30000 -> you have to divide your wheel circumference by 13.2


So, you have to use your complete wheel circumference.
That said, I think you're not using the proper circumference measure (as you said that you set 543mm after dividing it).
A normal wheel is around 2000-2200mm.

Please measure your real wheel circumference.
Here you can find one possible way to do it: https://elitesrl.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/a ... cumference
