  • 1030 refuses to upgrade from v5.00

    I got my 1030 a few months ago to replace my broken Edge 1000. I've not been doing much cycling recently (since getting the 1030) but am starting up again now.

    I've had a lot of connection/syncing issues with my Android phone/Garmin Connect Mobile so thought I'd check the firmware.

    Unlike with my Edge 1000, I've not been offered any firmware updates through the device. However, I can see that I'm on v5.00.

    Adding the device to Garmin Connect on my Mac, it also says that no updates are available for my device. It's only if I go to connect.garmin.com that it suggests that a software update is available (v7.00).

    If I go into the device -> about -> software update and click refresh, it tells me that no updates are available, either when connected to Garmin Connect Mobile or directly to the internet over wifi.

    Is there any way to get this device to recognise, download and install the latest firmware?

    Thanks,

    Euan.

    My experience is that software update is most reliable when performed from a computer using the Garmin Express app rather than the mobile app. You can download that app from the garmin website here https://www.garmin.com/en-US/software/express/ for Mac or PC.
    You should connect your edge to a computer and try that.

      Thanks for the reply Martin.

      I have tried three different methods to update the 1030 including using Garmin Express (v 6.11.0.0) on MacOS connected directly to my 1030.

      Still no joy.

      Thanks,

      Euan.

        You try doing it manually. Copy the file below to the Garmin folder and rename it to gupdate.gcd. If there is gupdate.tmp file on you unit then delete it.
