Garmin 5xx Erg Mode


Can I have the Garmin run workouts so my phone is free to do other things on? Run Zwift etc?

I can transfer the workouts via connect in outdoor mode, but this doesn’t control the erg.


Its not automatic but you could set up a Free Training peaks account and create a workout in there, which if you’ve got TP to Garmin Connect sync set up will transfer it to your Garmin. (The free account only lets you do this 1 day in advance of a wo though). If you then pair the garmin to the trainer it can then run ERG.

By create, do you mean build manually? Or will the TR app clone the w/o to TP?

Yip build manually. Nope TR doesn’t clone to TP which would be ideal.
