Garmin don't list as compatible but it's ant plus, of course.

What data will I get?

    Ive got the 510, also not listed as compatible.

    You get TSS, IF, LR balance etc but not the cycling dynamics.

    Confirmed with Garmin over chat.

    From what i understand the data thats missing is what most folks dont know what to do with to make meaningful differences.

    LR balance is what i wanted so good enough for me for now.

    Sorry just seen you mentioned 3s with which you dont get LR data nor cycling dynamics.
  • Ta mate, so, I will get all the usual power stuff, 3s, lap, average, peak all that.

    I assume that the 3s will double what it sends before it sends it?

    Yep all that works fine and as you say 3s just doubles the left output
  • Excellent. Thanks very much!

    Just be aware there is an issue with the vector 3's.

    Had mine since Xmas but following a battery change they have effectively died (data drops until it stops completely). Lots of reports of the same issue on garmin forum - it seems the pedals are fine until the first battery change.
  • yeah, just saw your post. I may hold off.....

    Well DCR doesn't think there is a widespread problem but the number of reports are definitely growing.
    Like my experience, all seem to be after the first battery change.

    Garmin have apparently acknowledged there is an issue and are supposed to be quick to send out replacements. I have only contacted them this afternoon so hope to have a response in the next day or so. Will update my post in the workshop section with details.
  • From reading the posts it seems to be folk getting a bit heavy handed with the tightening of the cover which also acts as the battery holder. I've had the cover off a few times now with no issues whatsoever.

    A few no doubt but there is no way I over tightened mine.

    Plus garmin themselves have apparently admitted there is an issue and it's not through over tightening the battery port screw.

    Have you got a link to them admitting there’s an issue?

    Look on the garmin forum and dc rainmaker site. There are several users who have received replacement pairs and garmin have apparently advised them that they are in the process of changing the battery cover design.

    This thread is a pretty good example of the issues.

    Just an update.
    Garmin have responded and provided an RMA number. They have assured me I will have a replacement set within 7 workings days.

    They said they are working hard to find out what has caused the issue that some users have experienced and they are confident the replacement pedals will not suffer the same problems.
  • For the small number of people that have the issue – because it really is a small number compared to the units shipped (as highlighted by DC himself) – the problem lies in the right pedal of the Dual set. So 3S users should be fine.

    How many different forums did you post in btw?

    Only posted on here. A Google search lead me to the other forums.

    Hopefully DCR is correct and this isn't a full on design flaw. Only thing to remember is the issue raises its head after the first battery change. The battery life is very impressive so there is a good chance many users will not have had to change the batteries yet.
