Garmin Forums decide to unsupport older devices

Postby texmurphy » Fri Aug 28, 2015 1:57 pm

For those of you who have older Garmin devices and still look to the Garmin Forums for device support, this may be of interest:

These, especially the Edge 500 / 705 / 800 Forums were still very active and offering much advice to users of old devices.
The only hint of this action is in a blog post at http://garmin.blogs.com/my_weblog/2015/08/changes-coming-soon-to-garmin-forums.html
Please Garmin, put these forums back. At minimum put a prominent link to the archived forums. There is no obvious link at present.
The Edge 500 Forum can still be accessed by https://forums.garmin.com/forumdisplay.php?219-Edge-500 but will not allow new posts. There are more than one post (often several) for every day in August 2015 in the Edge 500 Forum.

I do not think a World Tour Pro rider needs this Garmin forum for support for his Garmin Edge.
But according to this webpage Niki Terpstra (Etixx-QuickStep) still uses a Garmin Edge 500.

So, how can Garmin hold the Edge 500 to be obsolete?

I hope I can enjoy my Edge 500 for another long time.

As of today, 16 October 2015, Garmin Forums appear to have further cut all access to any "legacy" devices.
There is no longer any general posting into the Cycling Forum https://forums.garmin.com/forumdisplay.php?20-Cycling
Users were continuing to use this forum to discuss issues with Edge 305/705/500/... devices. All such discussions have been removed.

This includes fixes to faulty recording of activities.fit.
All swept under the rug and tidied up!
