VO2max not changing during training cycles since the new Edge 1040

Since changing from the 530 to the 1040 my VO2max shows 59 for 4 month without changes, independent of the training cycle I'm in. Previously it was fluctuating between 57 and 64. According to Garmin (data files provided) my VO2max varied between 59 and 59.4 and that the new 1040 measures differently. Anyone else has this experience. 59 as an average is about right but my VO2max can not be the same in my off season as well as in the final building block with tapering.
