Sensor Replacement
« on: June 09, 2014, 01:10:57 pm »

Hello,
While on a ride over the weekend, my speed sensor for my GB-580 separated and I lost the sensor.  Somehow the casing litterally separated after going over an expansion joint of a bridge.
Anyway, I went to the GSSport site and see there is now a new GB-1000 unit that has an integrated speed/cadence sensor.  Is this compatible with the GB-580?  If so, is it available for purchase and at what price?  I prefer having an integrated sensor anyway so when riding on a stationary trainer I can view speed/distance data.
Also, I have been having issues lately with my HR strap intermittently dropping signal and about 15-30 seconds later it returns. Not sure if it's a fit issue or what.  I recently replaced the battery thinking that may have been the problem, but it was not resolved with a fresh battery.

I doubt it, the 580 uses ANT+ and the 1000 uses "2.4 GHz".
There are other ANT+ sensors that should work.

Thanks Gerhard.  Can you tell me if a Garmin GSC-10 combined sensor will work with a 580?

Seems like it:

ANT+ is pretty standardized, I have not happened to hear about compatibility problems at all, as long as the device has support for the sensor type.
