Step 1: Charge the
Battery
Warning: This product
contains a lithium-ion battery. See
the Important Safety and Product
Information guide in the product
box for important battery safety
information.
The Edge is powered by a built-in
lithium-ion battery that you can
recharge using the AC charger
included in the product box. You can
also charge the Edge using the USB
cable and your computer. Charge the
Edge for at least three hours before
you begin using it.
Edge 605/705 Owner’s Manual
Getting Started
note: To prevent
corrosion, thoroughly
dry the mini-USB
port, weather cap, and
surrounding area before
charging or connecting to
a personal computer.
TIP: The Edge will not
charge when outside the
temperature range of
32°F–122°F (0°C–50°C).
To charge the Edge:
1. On the back of the Edge, pull
up the weather cap from the
mini-USB port.
2. Plug the mini-USB end of
the AC or USB cable into the
mini-USB port on the back of
the Edge.
Getting Started
Step 2: Install the
Edge
Mini-USB port
under weather
cap
3. Plug the other end into a

information, see page 60.
For the best GPS reception, position
the bike mount so the front of the
Edge is oriented toward the sky. You
can install the bike mount on the
stem or the handlebars. The stem
installation (shown here) provides a
more sturdy location. The optional
wedge should be used under the
mount for a better viewing angle.
To install the Edge on your
bike stem:
1. Place the wedge on the bike
stem, and then place the bike
mount on the wedge. Make

About GPS
On the satellite page, the available
satellites are flashing while the
Edge searches for satellite signals.
Acquired satellites and each
corresponding bar below change
to solid. The GPS accuracy and
coordinates appear at the top of the
page.
Using the Map
The Global Positioning System
(GPS) is a satellite-based navigation
system made up of a network of
24 satellites placed into orbit by
the United States Department
of Defense. GPS was originally
intended for military applications,
but in the 1980s, the government
made the system available for
civilian use. GPS works in any
weather conditions, anywhere in the
world, 24 hours a day. There are no
subscription fees or setup charges to
use GPS.

Heart Rate Monitor
The heart rate monitor is on standby

note: The Garmin logo
should be right-side up.
4. Turn on the Edge and bring
it within range (3 m) of the
heart rate monitor. The
heart rate icon appears on the
menu page.
5. To customize data fields, see
page 47.
6. If heart rate data does not
appear or if you have erratic
heart rate data, you may
have to tighten the strap on
your chest or warm up for
5–10 minutes. If the problem
persists, you may have to pair
the sensors. See page 57.
Caution: Consult your
physician to specify heart
rate zones/targets that
are appropriate for your
fitness level and health
condition.
Many athletes are using heart rate

Generally, heart rate zones are

your maximum heart rate.

How Do Heart Rate Zones
Affect Your Fitness Goals?
Knowing your heart rate zones can
help you measure and improve
your fitness by understanding and
applying these principles:
Edge 605/705 Owner’s Manual
• Your heart rate is a good measure
of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate
zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and
strength.
• Knowing your heart rate
zones can prevent you from
overtraining and decrease your
risk of injury.
If you know your maximum heart
rate, you can enter it and allow the
Edge to calculate your heart rate
zones based on the percentages
shown in the table on page 36. If
you do not know your maximum
heart rate, use one of the calculators
available on the Internet.
Heart Rate Monitor Battery
For battery information, see page 58.
GSC 10
Using Accessories
Your Edge 705 is compatible with
the GSC 10 speed and cadence
sensor for bikes.
Both magnets must be aligned with
their respective indication lines for
the Edge to receive data.
To install the GSC 10:
1. Place the GSC 10 on the
rear chain stay (on the side
opposite the drive train).
Loosely attach the GSC 10
using two cable ties.
2. Attach the pedal magnet
to the crank arm using the
adhesive mount and a cable
tie. The pedal magnet must be
within 5 mm of the GSC 10,
and the indication line on the
pedal magnet must line up
with the indication line on the
GSC 10.

is not enough room between
the sensor arm and the spoke.
The magnet must be aligned
with the sensor arm indication
line.
4. Loosen the screw on the
sensor arm and move it to
within 5 mm of the spoke
magnet. You can also
tilt the GSC 10 closer to
either magnet for improved
alignment.
5. Press the Reset button on
the GSC 10. The LED turns
red, then green. Pedal to test

crank arm passes the sensor,
and the green LED blinks each
time the wheel magnet passes

a reset. Press Reset again
if you require additional
passes.
6. When everything is aligned
and working correctly, tighten
the cable ties, sensor arm, and
spoke magnet.
Training with Cadence
Cadence is your rate of pedaling or
“spinning” measured by the number
of revolutions of the crank arm per
minute (rpm).
40
There are two sensors on the GSC 10:
one for cadence and one for speed.
Cadence data from the GSC 10 is
always recorded. The speed data from
the GSC 10 is only recorded and
used for distance calculation when
the GPS signal is weak or the GPS is
turned off.
For information about cadence alerts,
see page 18.

Accessories
If you purchased a sensor (with
ANT+Sport wireless technology)
separately, you need to pair it with
your Edge.
What Is Pairing?
Pairing is the connecting of sensors,
such as your heart rate monitor
with your Edge. After you pair the
first time, your Edge automatically
recognizes your sensor each time
it is activated. This process occurs
automatically when you turn on the
Edge and only takes a few seconds
when the sensors are activated and
functioning correctly. When paired,
your Edge only receives data from
your sensor, and you can go near
other sensors.
Edge 605/705 Owner’s Manual
Settings
To pair accessories:
1. Move away (10 m) from other
sensors while the Edge is
trying to pair with your sensor
for the first time. Bring your
sensor within range (3 m) of
the Edge.
2. Press menu > select Settings
> ANT+Sport.
3. For each accessory you have,
select Yes > Restart Scan.
NOTE: For information
about using accessories,
zones, and calibration, see
pages 34-41.

Troubleshooting
Problem
The buttons don’t
respond. How do I
reset the Edge?
My Edge never gets
satellite signals.
The battery gauge
does not seem
accurate.
Appendix
Solution/Answer
Press mode and lap/reset simultaneously to reset the Edge
software. This does not erase any of your data or settings.
Take your Edge out of parking garages and away from tall
buildings and trees. Remain stationary for several minutes.
Allow the Edge to fully discharge, and then fully charge it
(without interrupting the charge cycle).
• Stay 10 m away from other ANT sensors while pairing.
• Bring the Edge within range (3 m) of the heart rate monitor
while pairing.
• If the problem persists, replace the battery.

Appendix
Problem
The heart rate data is
inaccurate or erratic.
66
Solution/Answer
• Make sure the heart rate monitor is snug against your body.
• Warm up for 5–10 minutes. If the problem persists, continue
with the following suggestions:
• Reapply moisture to the sensors. Use water, saliva, or
electrode gel. Clean the sensors. Dirt and sweat residue on
the sensors can interfere with heart rate signals.
• Synthetic fabrics that rub or flap against the heart rate
monitor can create static electricity that interferes with heart
rate signals. Wear a cotton shirt or wet your shirt if suitable
for your activity.
• Position the heart rate monitor on your back instead of your
chest.
• Strong electromagnetic fields and some 2.4 GHz wireless
sensors can interfere with your heart rate monitor. Sources
of interference may include very high voltage power lines,
electric motors, microwave ovens, 2.4 GHz cordless
phones, and wireless LAN access points. After you move
away from the source of interference, your heart rate data
should return to normal.
