Garmin Edge 130 : Test, Analysis and Opinion

Esta página está disponible en español

Este año 2018 no ha sido excesivamente prolífico en dispositivos de ciclismo por parte de Garmin. De hecho sólo se han presentado dos, este Garmin Edge 130 y el Edge 520 Plus (que realmente es un «refrito» del Edge 520 original). Bueno, en la misma fecha se presentó también el RTL510.

It might seem that this has been a year of transition and that nothing is of much relevance beyond renewing the range or keeping it current, but let's not deceive ourselves, this Edge 130 is a little more than it seems and covers a part of the market that Garmin has not covered until now.

When we are waiting for new launches we always want to see the latest, most expensive, most feature-rich product. It gives us a sense of advancement, awakens our curiosity to see where the market is going and of course activates our most consumerist side. The small Edge 130 does not meet any of these points, and may seem a totally irrelevant product because it has no novel features or lights and bells that make it stand out from the rest of the market. However, it does deceive.

And it does so simply because it looks like a very simple device, but in reality it is full of possibilities, and not only as a unique device to accompany your bike on any outing, but also for those of you who have other more capable devices but want something smaller and lighter for the days of competition. 

I've been trying out a loaner unit from Garmin for a little over a month now, so I know everything the Edge 130 has to offer, and I liked it so much that I bought one to add to my collection even before I finished the trial. In the meantime, the trial Edge 130 will be coming back to Garmin in the next few days along with several other devices I have ready to return.

Remember, if you like the content you find here you can collaborate with the site by buying your device through the links provided. It can be either the Edge 130 or anything else you need, you will pay the same and return a small commission in return.

Let's go back to Edge 130. You want to know what I liked about Edge 130 so much that I got one before I finished the test? I'll tell you later.

Garmin Edge 130 Features

When you first see Edge 130, the first thing that comes to mind is that it's a simple bike computer. It'll tell you how fast you're moving, how far you've traveled, and how long you've been training. Hopefully you'll also know your heart rate, and it'll have a GPS to save the route you've taken. But little else.

What else is such a little thing going to do? 

Garmin Edge 130

It does more than you'd think. I'm not saying it's a match for Edge 1030, but it's not much of a match for Edge 520 either. Take a look at its feature list because it's longer than the size of Edge 130 suggests.

  • It has a barometric altimeter. The data of altitude and meters ascended will be real (and not by GPS)
  • In addition to being compatible with GPS satellites, it also supports GLONASS and Galileo
  • Supports external sensors, both ANT+ and Bluetooth
  • It is compatible with power meters
  • Compatible with ANT+, Varia and Varia Radar lights
  • Autonomy of up to 15 hours (although the real one with use of sensors is less)
  • Route navigation
  • The new extended display function is available
  • Support for live Strava segments
  • Allows you to install Connect IQ data fields
  • Connection with smartphone for update, training synchronization and call and SMS notification
  • Compatible with LiveTrack
  • Accident notification to family/friends in case of unusual slowdown
  • Only 32 grams in weight

I will now compare it to the Edge 520. Not because it comes to replace it or because they are similar, simply because the price range in which you will find them is very similar. What can you find in the Edge 520 that is not available in the Edge 130?

  • Edge 130's screen is monochrome and 1.8″, Edge 520's screen is color and 2.3″
  • On the Edge 130 we can only set up one sport profile, the Edge 520 supports several
  • We do not have advanced data fields such as intensity factor, normalized power, TSS... They are available on the Edge 520
  • Advanced training and smart roller control cannot be programmed
  • Although we can install Connect IQ data fields, it is not possible to install
  • Of course, there are no maps, although the Edge 520 does not stand out at this point either (for that you would have to go to the Edge 520 Plus)
  • He's missing half his weight (is that bad?) 
  • The Edge 520 lacks compatibility with Galileo, has no enlarged screen, the display for showing segments is less practical and is considerably larger. Not everything is in favour of the Edge 520 in the comparison...

This is mainly what makes it different from the Edge 520. There are a few more things but this is the most remarkable and what may concern users the most. Which one is better for you? It will depend on your use, keep reading and you will find out.

How Garmin Edge 130 works

The Edge 130 is not a replacement for any other device in the Garmin range. It may look like the Edge 25, but it has nothing to do with it, it is much more complete.

As a new device it is associated with some changes to the button layout. It is not a totally different experience, and if you are used to moving around in Garmin menus everything will sound quite familiar, but there are still some changes.

To begin with, there are fewer buttons. On the left side, there is only the button to turn the Edge 130 on and off. The same button also serves to activate the display lighting, which can be set to 10 or 30 seconds on or left on permanently, at the cost of reduced range.

Garmin Edge 130

Meanwhile the right side only has two scroll buttons, the upper one will also serve as a menu button if you keep it pressed.

Garmin Edge 130

As you can see, both of these arrangements are not the usual Garmin arrangements, and as a smaller device there is not as much space for buttons.

Where everything is kept as we are used to is at the bottom of the screen, with the start/pause and turn buttons.

Garmin Edge 130

But the difference here is that these buttons are also used for menu control. The start button will be used to confirm or access a menu, and the dial back button to return to the previous menu. In the past these two buttons only had their specific mission.

The menu also varies, and is now much simpler. As soon as you turn on Edge 130, the cycling display will appear with battery and sensor information at the top. You must wait until it finds both a GPS signal and all the sensors (you'll know because the icons stop flashing) and you can start your workout by pressing the start button.

Garmin Edge 130 - Main Screen

If you press the scroll buttons instead of starting the activity you will see the notification and time screens.

Garmin Edge 130 - Notifications

Garmin Edge 130 - Weather

If you want to enter the menu to change some settings, press and hold the top scroll button to enter the main menu where everything becomes more familiar to the Garmin user.

Garmin Edge 130 - Menu

This is where you can change profile settings, activate navigation, view statistics and history, etc.

As for data pages, we can configure up to 5 screens with a maximum of 8 data in each one of them. The difference with other models of greater range is that in the case of the Edge 130 there is only one cycling profile, it does not offer different profiles depending on the type of use you are going to do (road, mountain, race, etc.). 

Garmin Edge 130 - Configure Data Fields

In addition to these five data screens we can add other predefined screens for map, compass, altitude, time, notifications or segments.

The rest of the profile settings are the usual ones. You can set alerts, autolap (although it is not possible to set the distance), automatic pause... The usual.

The Edge 130 is a model designed for the lower end of the range, but it is compatible with all types of sensors. Garmin has not blocked the use of any of them, as it usually does with cheaper devices. In particular, it supports all of them:

  • Heart rate via ANT+ and Bluetooth
  • Speed and/or cadence via ANT+ and Bluetooth
  • ANT+ or Bluetooth potentiometers
  • Lights through ANT+
  • Radar Varia through ANT+

Particularly noteworthy is the compatibility with potentiometers.

Garmin Edge 130 - Potentiometer

If you use pedals that have cycling dynamics, such as Garmin's Vector 3 or Assioma (when updated), Edge 13 will not display or record it. This information will be lost in the wind.

Where Edge 130 is most limited is when selecting some data fields, especially those related to power. We have the most basic data such as 3-second power or return power; but more advanced options are not available: current factor (IF), normalized power (NP), 10 or 30-second average power, etc.

This is the most important limitation, although it is possible to solve it thanks to Connect IQ as I will show you later.

Once you have set up your options you can start recording your workout. The screen will show the screens you have selected, both the data screens and the specific screens you have selected (compass, map, altitude, etc.) I especially like the one with the segments (from Garmin or Strava), because it follows the latest design that Garmin offers in the new devices and that is much more useful than the first one we saw in the old Edge 520.

Garmin Edge 130 - Segments

In addition to showing the route profile, the target we are competing against is variable, changing it according to how fast we are.

While you are recording your workout you can access the menu by pressing the top scroll button. It will allow you to make any changes to screens or settings without having to stop the recording.

Garmin Edge 130 - Main Menu

You can also choose the back to home option to get the route to return to your origin. It will show you the path you have followed to that point. Or you can mark a location to return to later thanks to the compass. It will simply tell you the direction to follow and the distance, but not the path because Edge 130 does not have a map. Although I will talk a little more about navigation below.

After completing your workout you can synchronize it by connecting the Edge to your computer or by Bluetooth through your mobile phone, and you can view it on the web or in the mobile application.

Garmin Edge 130 - Synchronized Training

Again, we can see that the power analysis is also different for Edge 130, as we have more detail in more advanced models. Here you can compare the data shown for Edge 130 (left) with Edge 1030 (right) for the same workout.

Garmin Edge 130 - Synchronized Training

Adding missing data fields

The biggest limitation of the Edge 130 is the power support, not in the aspect of allowing it to be used with a potentiometer to measure power, but in the data it offers. The offer is quite limited, allowing only these power data to be selected:

  • 3s average power
  • Average power
  • Lap average power
  • Power kJ
  • Maximum power
  • Power zone

It may be sufficient for a large number of users, but more advanced users will be more limited because there is no trace of more advanced fields such as intensity factor, normalized power, 10s, 30s or 1s averages, etc. In this case two things must be taken into account.

The first is that there are metrics that aren't there simply because Garmin didn't want to add them. Nothing limits Garmin from providing an average of the last 10 seconds of power. Or instantaneous power (although few people will use it). This is an absence that Garmin makes of its own free will, not because of device limitation or any other limitation.

There is a second thing to consider and that is with the more specific metrics such as normalized power, TSS, intensity factor, etc. These metrics come from algorithms that, if included, Garmin would have to pay a fee for their use. And they have not been added given the most basic profile of this model -and its lower price-. 

Aunque no debemos olvidar que tenemos Connect IQ disponible para campos de datos, lo que nos abre las puertas a multitud de aplicaciones. Así que lo que no se ofrece de serie podemos conseguirlo de manera «paralela».

An application is available from the Connect IQ Store: AppbuilderWith it you can have all those data fields that Edge 130 lacks and in a very simple way. But we have a limitation, we can't add more than two Connect IQ data fields to the activity profile, so you will have to choose which ones you want to add.

After installing the application you will have to configure the data field through the application on your smartphone.

Appbuilder

Just enter the necessary data.

Appbuilder

  • Label: The name that the data field will have on the screen. In this case I have put the normalized power, so I have called it NP.
  • Formula:Where does the formula come from? From the application examples page. Or from the instructions it displays, create your own data field. 
  • Display format:: To choose if we want decimals or not, or if it is a time or pace field.
  • Record data to FIT file:If we want to save this data to the FIT file (and have it available in the workout analysis) we obviously need to select this option.

And with this you'll have your power data field normalized, something that Edge 130 doesn't offer as standard. It's also possible to put more than one value in the formula, so you can put more than one data in a single data field and be able to get around the limitation of up to two Connect IQ data fields.

In my case I have finally added a field to show three data (we are not limited to one, we can select several): lap normalized power, total normalized power and intensity factor. The formula used is this:

lapavg(timeavg(power,30,1)^4)^0.25 + '/' + avg(timeavg(power,30,1)^4)^0.25 + '/' + formatdecimal(avg(timeavg(power,30,1)^4)^0.25 / MY_FTP, 3)

Garmin Edge 130 - Appbuilder

However, I modified the formula after the photo to add decimals in the case of the intensity factor.

If you want to add a second field you will need to download another application (that's why there are the Appbuilder B, C, D, etc.) and repeat the configuration procedure, since when you select the data field you have created you will have to select the application where you have entered the field.

It's a great application that opens the door to a multitude of additional data fields (which you can also have on any other device, not just the Edge 130). Plus, if you like math you'll enjoy being a pig in a poke by designing your own algorithms from all the variables you can use. Five stars without a doubt.

Extended display function

The extended display feature was introduced with this Garmin Edge 130. It will not be unique to this one, although that is perhaps where it makes the most sense. Other Garmin models that support this feature include the Edge 1030, Edge 820 and Edge 520 Plus, and it is expected that they will come to market in the future.

What is the extended screen? When we put the Edge in this mode it will act as a remote screen from another main device. It will not record data, nor will it use GPS or have specific alerts. It simply displays data from another device, acting as a remote screen. Something like the Apple Airplay, but in a sports version.

The watches that are currently compatible with this feature are the Forerunner 645, Forerunner 735XT, Forerunner 935 and the Fenix 5 and Fenix 5 Plus ranges (5S and 5X included).

It is activated directly from the device's main menu.

Garmin Edge 130 - Extended Display

Once selected, Edge 130 becomes a sensor and waits to receive a connection.

Garmin Edge 130 - Extended Display

A continuación en tu reloj deberás hacer una búsqueda de sensores, igual que si estuvieses buscando un sensor de pulso o un potenciómetro. Aparecerá un sensor de «Pantalla» junto con el ID de dispositivo que el Edge 130 muestra en pantalla.

Garmin Edge 130 - Extended Display

Once selected, both will be linked. Nothing else needs to be done on the clock, as it is just another sensor to be searched for at all times. And while the Edge 130 is in this mode it will display the clock information whenever it is in close proximity. Likewise, if you turn the Edge off and back on, it will do so again in the extended display mode, not in normal use mode.

If you want to exit this mode, simply press and hold the menu button to return to the main menu and retrieve the full functionality of your Edge.

Garmin Edge 130 - Extended Display

As for the enlarged screen, the screen of the Edge will be divided in two. In the upper part we have two data fields that cannot be modified: total time and return time. In the lower half we have the data fields that we have configured in the clock.

Garmin Edge 130 - Extended Display

You can see that there is a slight delay in the information that shows something less than a second, but it does not affect its use at all.

We can use the scroll buttons on the Edge to change the screen between those we have configured on the clock. And I insist, where you have to select which screen you want to see is on the clock since the Edge simply reproduces the information that it dictates.

The fact that we move the screen in the edge does not mean that the clock will change, so we can have one screen with data in the clock and another different one in the edge.

Garmin Edge 130 - Extended Display

So we can have a screen in the clock with four data that we are not interested in having always available although we do consult them (distance, cycling time, slope, etc.) and in the Edge see those that are relevant at all times (intensity factor, normalized power in lap, heart rate, etc.).

This way you can have up to 10 data simultaneously, six visible directly on the Edge screen (the four on the clock plus the two fixed) along with an additional four to be consulted simply by looking at the clock.

Here we can use all the data fields that the clock has, including those that are not available on Edge 130: normalized power, plus power averages, etc. The only limitation is that we cannot display Connect IQ fields.

Garmin Edge 130 - Extended Display

The same alerts will appear on screen as on the clock, so if you have alerts set up they will also appear on the Edge screen.

I insist on repeating that in this mode the Edge 130 is not recording anything and we are not using its GPS, everything will be recorded on whatever the clock is recording. This is definitely a feature designed with triathlon in mind. You can leave the Edge on the bike with the zoomed-in display mode on (it will not turn off) and when you get back from swimming, it will connect to the clock exactly as the other sensors on the bike will. You will avoid having to hit the start recording button and you will not have the cycling part duplicated.

Navigation on the Garmin Edge 130

Among all the things the Garmin Edge 130 offers is also navigation. Of course it's not advanced navigation and the Edge can't display maps on screen, but we can download routes and follow them as dotted routes, just like on watches like the Fenix 5 or FR935.

Routes can be created through Garmin Connect, or imported into the web and then synchronized to the Edge wirelessly.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

You have a third option which is to use the new route creator which is available in the new versions of Garmin Connect.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

This utility imitates the creation of routes that can be made on Edges that do have a map, with the advantage of a much faster experience thanks to the huge power difference in favour of your smartphone. It also uses the Trendline function to opt for popular routes.

By making a basic selection of the type of route you want to take, the approximate distance to travel and the direction of departure, the application calculates a route that you can then send to the device.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

After synchronizing the route you can select it from the navigation menu.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation menu

After opening the route you can see a summary, view the map and the altitude profile.

Once the route has been started, Edge 130 will show you the route to follow. Remember, without maps, simply track the route.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

The Edge display will alert you when you are approaching a turn, telling you where to go and how much farther to go. You don't have to be on the navigation screen all the time, it will also display the warning on any data screen and be superimposed on the rest of the information.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

If you go off-road it will indicate that you are off-track, but obviously without a map it will not be able to create an alternative route for you.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

As you can see it is a simple navigation, similar to what you can have in any clock other than a Fenix 5 Plus, but in many cases it is more than enough. The limitations can be in areas where there are many detours, or having to take an exit in a roundabout with several exits and not hitting the right one. 

Finally, remember that, additionally, we can make the return trip at any time of our route. It offers us two options, through the same route or in a straight line.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

The first option will guide us through the same path we have followed, while the second option will show a compass arrow that will indicate the direction you should follow and the remaining distance.

Garmin Edge 130 - Navigation

Opinion Garmin Edge 130

I suppose I can sum up my opinion of the Garmin Edge 130 simply by my actions. As soon as I tried it I decided to replace my Garmin Edge 520 with the new Edge 130. My case is different though, as I also have an Edge 1030 which in many ways is very similar to the 520. 

With Edge 130 I have a much smaller device that is perfect for race days (and why not, any other training as well). I can use it either independently or by displaying watch information. And on days when I need something more specific I can go back to the 1030 and use its map navigation, its larger size for better visibility or guided training. As a complement, Edge 130 is a great option and my clear choice for race day. Wearing Edge 1030 on a cycling segment of a triathlon would not make much sense or be too comfortable for me. There the little 130 is like a fish in water and I have the ability to use it by itself or as a watch data display. I think Garmin has created a perfect device with triathlon in mind. And as such it fits me perfectly in its use, much better than the Edge 520 did.

This is my case, I have a multitude of devices and I can switch between one or another at my leisure, but it doesn't apply to all the others. If I had to choose a single computer for everything maybe things would be different and I would opt for some superior model, at least at this time when the price difference between the Edge 130 and the Edge 520 is very small given the novelty of the 130. In a few months when it is possible to find the 130 at cheaper prices maybe you should think seriously about using the extra features of the Edge 520.

Don't be fooled by its small size and being a low-end device from Garmin, it is fully capable of meeting the needs of the most advanced users.

Buy Garmin Edge 130

  1. Thank you, Eduardo. As always, impeccable work.

    I didn't know about the appbuilder... I think I'll take a good look at it

    1. They have nothing to do with each other... to begin with the navigation of the Edge Explore... but this one does not support power meters.

  2. The FR230 is not compatible with the extended display, but it could be used as an external pulse device, I mean, I have the FR230 for running, but when I use the bike I use the FR230 and an Edge520. I would like to see the pulse of the FR230 so I don't have to wear the band or when I go up the Edge520 takes my pulse data from the FR230, can it be synchronized?
    Thanks for your page.

    1. The FR230 has no optical sensor... if you're referring to the one on the band, you simply have to pair the Edge 520 with the band.

      1. Sorry, I meant FR235, not FR230. What I want is to synchronize the pulse data recorded by FR235 with the workouts recorded by an Edge520

        1. Yes, the FR235 can transmit heart rate data, but the truth is that with the reliability it has in cycling what I recommend is a chest pulse sensor .

  3. Good morning.

    I would like to know if it supports gpx paths from Wikiloc (no direct download via IQ) but downloading the gpx file to the computer and adding it via cable. Or is it only possible from Garmin Connect?

    Thank you

    1. Yes, either by downloading for Garmin from the Wikiloc page (they used to have that option, I don't know if it continues) or by uploading the GPX file to Garmin Connect.

  4. Hola Eduardo. Enhorabuena por tu trabajo. Cuando leo otras reviews parece que todas siguen un guión, pero en las tuyas siempre encuentro cosas nuevas y no «estandarizadas». No siempre los de fuera tienen que ser mejores. Tengo un Edge 520 y hace tiempo que lo querías cambiar por lo siguiente. A mi me gusta utilizar waypoints para saber por ejemplo, cuánto me falta para llegar a una subida y a continuación que el sistema me salte al siguiente waypoint para saber distancia a cumbre. De hecho, como truco por si te gusta para tu planificación en carreras, te diré que corriendo en carreras cuyo recorrido no conozco, me las estudio y también hago así. Después en las cuestas regulo con Stryd y más o menos sé que distancia me queda de esfuerzo. Para correr uso Ambit y Movescount, para planificar, aunque cuando lo cierren ya veremos (te preguntaré otra vez :-). El caso es que cuando compré el Edge 520 me llevé un chasco pues no me lo permite. Si, admite waypoints, pero no asociarlos a una ruta ni ir saltando de uno al otro. Al menos yo no he podido. Para ciclismo me sigo apañando con un antiguo Garmin Oregon, que tenía para excursiones y uso Basecamp, para asociar a la ruta los waypoints. ¿Tu sabes que ciclocomputador me permitiría hacer esto? Prefería ir a tiro fijo y no andar comprando y devolviendo. Quizá los que son compatibles con Basecamp, pero no encuentro información sobre ello en la web de Garmin. Gracias por adelantado.

    1. Thank you, Pedro.

      As you say, Basecamp is a program that's associated with mountain navigation units, not Garmin Edge. There's no cycling device that allows for that use.

      For what you're asking, keep an eye on http://www.bestbikesplit.com because he does similar things.

  5. Hi! Great explanation!
    I consult you, to follow a track, the map is fixed and always to the north... (As you advance the cursor that indicates your position disappears and you have to jump the page so that the cursor is centered again)

    My question is, can I set the cursor to be fixed and the track to move?

    Thank you!

  6. Hola Eduardo! Lo primero darte la enhorabuena por tus análisis. Son de gran ayuda cuando tenemos dudas a la hora de decidirnos por un dispositivo, muy distintos a los de otros sitios donde lo único que hacen es leer las especificaciones de arriba a bajo.
    Estoy en la siguiente situación: Hago triatlon y algo de Btt también. Tengo un Fénix 5 y un Edge 810, con los que estoy muy contento. De hecho, en su momento me decanté por el 810 en vez de por el 820 ya que para btt me parece superior (más pantalla y mejor funcionamiento táctil). Ahora me estoy plantenado dar el salto al 830 para poder tener más métricas de ciclismo y seguir manteniendo un buen seguimiento de tracks con mapas. Pero después de leer tu análisis, ya me planteo comprar el 130, poder usarlo como pantalla externa del fénix 5 para tener todas esas métricas(de momento no tengo potenciómetro, pero estoy en proceso. Sí lo tengo en el rodillo), trainning effect, etc. y seguir usando el 810 para navegación de rutas en btt. Con esto me ahorraría mínimo 200€ y creo al final tendría lo mismo. Decir que la Btt la uso en pretemporada de uso más recreativo, la salida del fin de semana, etc. no para entrenamientos específicos. ¿Que opinas de esta idea? Gracias y un saludo!

    1. Gracias Martín,

      Si estás contento con el 810 para navegación, el 130 es una buena opción como dispositivo para lo que te digo. Yo estoy contento con el Edge 130 porque aunque sencillo, es perfecto para el uso que le doy (competición). De hecho ahora ya es el que llevo fijo en la cabra, y ahí ya casi nunca monto el Edge 1030 o el Edge 830.

      Mientras tengas en cuenta las limitaciones que ofrece (campos avanzados que hay que crear manualmente, hasta dónde llega la pantalla externa, etc.) es una buena opción perfectamente válida.

  7. Que tal Eduardo? Fantastica review. He estado viendo varias estos dias y la tuya es la mejor con diferencia porque vas a temas concretos y ofreces soluciones. El tema es que siempre he usudao el 520 y ahora no me carga porque la bateria se recalienta. Estoy variando la opcion de cambiar al 130 porque me gusta el tamaño pero yo miro bastante el If y el NP. La pregunta es, con la app que comentas es facil de poner las formulasformulas??? Es que soy un poco torpe para la electronica. Muchas gracias.

    1. Gracias Guillermo.

      La primera vez que introduzcas los datos te va a costar trabajo, porque como tengas el más mínimo fallo a la hora de escribir te va a dar error y tendrás que revisarlo 20 veces. Pero una vez hecho y que lo tengas funcionando, no lo vas a tener que modificar nada más que para cambiar el valor de FTP.

  8. Muy buen análisis Eduardo. Me gustaría, por favor, que me aclararas una duda. Tengo potenciómetro de pedales Assioma Favero y quiero saber si se muestran los datos en el Garmin 130.
    Thank you very much.

  9. hola Eduardo tocayo enhorabuena por la esplicacion del garmin 130. me gustaria saber si en la pantalla donde pone grado se refiere a la inclinacion de la subida pues en otros garmins lo pone en% y tambien lo que me interesa es la orientacion si es al Norte o hacia adellante. Gracias y un saludo

    1. Pues sin tenerlo ahora mismo delante, se puede añadir la pendiente en la pantalla de datos, pero no estoy seguro que se llame grado. Pero supongo que sí.

      Para la orientación tienes que seleccionar el campo de rumbo.

  10. Good afternoon, Eduardo,
    He intentado poner la potencia normalizada con la fórmula tal y como lo pones, y no le debido de hacer bien porque no me coge el dato de potencia normalizada.
    Me aparece en la pantalla del Garmin lo siguiente: NP -!Syntax
    ¿Sabes dónde puede estar el error?

    Thank you very much.
    Greetings
