Garmin edge 130

set-up

Cycling Weekly - - TECH TESTED -

Of­ten with a cy­cling com­puter, set­ting the de­vice up be­comes a sort of bat­tle of wits. Wa­hoo and Lezyne have done very well, let­ting you use their re­spec­tive de­vices’ com­pan­ion app to cus­tomise data screens in real time. Garmin’s set-up process is still done on the de­vice it­self, but here it’s more stream­lined than on the touch­screen mod­els be­cause thank­fully there’s a lim­ited num­ber of but­tons you can press.

The top right but­ton acts as the menu, and from here you pro­gram your set­tings. To change a data screen you select it and then you can choose how many fields to dis­play, and then what each field dis­plays.

It’s quite self-ex­plana­tory and easy to fol­low: the play but­ton acts as ‘en­ter’, while the lap but­ton is the undo/re­turn but­ton. The same process is used to pair the head unit to ex­ter­nal sen­sors such as power me­ters, speed and ca­dence sen­sors.
