- Garmin 810 issue – help please!
My wife has a Garmin 810. Up until last week, after a ride, she plugs it into the laptop, the laptop recognizes it connected & she can download her ride onto Strava via Garmin Connect.
But now the laptop has stopped recognizing the Garmin being connected.
Additionally when its connected to the laptop it times down from 15 secs to off, then once off, turns itself back on again, & starts the 15 sec countdown to off cycle again.
Can anyone help with whats wrong with it??Posted 1 year agostucMember
Mine did this.
I just did a reset to factory settings – had to reset activity and bike profiles and layout of pages as you can imagine, but since that it’s played fine.
I have also though put the garmin connect app and strava on to phone and unless I’m uploading routes I’ll now Bluetooth from 810 to Garmin Connect, and the auto sync between Gc and strava.Posted 1 year ago
Further to previous posts & solutions we’re still having issues downloading to the PC.
Done a few resets.
Tried several cables.
When plugged into the PC it charges the Garmin but it can’t be found on the file explorer.
Any other suggestions?
Currently uploading rides via Bluetooth to phone, but cant update Garmin software or upload routes from Strava.Posted 11 months agophil56Subscriber
I had this exact problem with an 800 a couple of years ago – try this if you haven’t already – sorry if the details are a little vague!
There’s an option to connect a Garmin as a file store – when the Garmin is off, turn it on while pressing the left hand button on the front at the same time. If this is successful an image of a filing cabinet will appear on the screen. I think you need to keep pressing both buttons until the start up is complete.
Once I did this Explorer could ‘see’ the Garmin, Then turn it off and back on normally. After that mine started working OK.
Hope that helps.Posted 11 months agob rMember
tbh I was just asking about Windows incase that was an issue.
IMO there is something fundamentally weak in the GPS devices software (and PC integration) as my current 810 has given up it’s Bluetooth ability again, I had constant issues with a previous Garmin and went through 3 Bryton’s.
But I’ve never had a problem with mobiles (Nokia and then iPhone 4S and now 5).Posted 11 months ago
