Garmin cadence has been working just fine until .....yesterday became a bit erratic, and today wasn`t picked up at all :( SO changed battery, reset unit, repeated `restart scan` on Edge 705 (and an old 305), nothing detected on eitehr Garmin unit >>>problem with sensor system ?? . Red light blinks OK on reset of sensor, 705 functions just fine. Any thoughts?
ta :)

    Change the battery?
    reload the software?

    Battery changed, and software OK as Garmin works fine with another cadence sensor on other bike ..........

    The battery in the cadence sensor that does not work may need to be changed

    When you say you reset the unit, did you put the battery in backwards for a few seconds? If not then try that trick.
    More problems but still living....
  • 1) Try moving away from the other bike - head unit may struggle to pick up the correct sensor.
    2) Remove battery for a couple of minutes to reset the GSC-10, then try repairing
    3) Replace battery
