    Can anyone help with this problem.

    After months of working together perfectly, my 705 has stopped displaying power from my power tap . I see that other 705 owners have had this problem but I can't see the solution.


    The 705 detects the powermeter but displays either 0w or very occasionally intermittent and very low watts.

    I have tried a hard reset.

    I don't have the PT CPU.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    The Power tap is less than 1 year old, and I have been told the battery should not yet be an issue.

    I am planning to try the powertap with a friends garmin this weekend to try and isolate the problem.

    I end up replacing my Powertap batteries every few months.

    Hi

    First place I would look would definitely be the batteries, I change mine more regularly than 12 months even if everything is working as I reckon that's the limit of their life. Nothing worse than battery failure when you least want it, apart from leg failure, or heart failure of course :eek:

    All sorted, batteries in Powertap followed by another hard reset on the garmin fixed the problem
