Hey all, my garmin 910 xt elevation reading doesn't seem to work.  it shows a true elevation reading when in dormant mode ie on but not pressed start yet.

but as soon as I press start the elevation sticks at something like 65.62, and doesn't show the proper elevation graph when uploaded.  

PI tried a complete system reset and still same.  I also have not been able to upload the new garmin 2.8 version for some reason, no idea why.

written to garmin a couple of days ago buno heard nothing.

if anyone has same problem then be great to hear from you.

cheers,  TT.

have you tried to recalibrate it as opposed to a system reset, failing that have a look on the back and youll see a hole near on of the screws - make sure you havent got crap in it. and i suppose you already been on the garmin forums

Ok do a search in garmin correction 65.62 slow twitch and you should get to the same article

Thanks for that IR, and having followed that......yes it is faulty!   Doing IMUK next Sunday, so time to phone garmin!

i've had the same problem about 4 times in the past year - each time it has been swapped out and then the replacement has lasted about 3 months. My current one is knackered and Garmin have just agreed to replace it again because of all the problems I've had even though I am now out of warranty. 

Anyway if you push them hard enough - and pay a deposit up front - they'll ship you a new one before you return the faulty one. You really have to push for this but I've got them to do it twice now.
