Riders using the SRAM RED eTap wireless electronic shifting groupset can now view their gear profile and battery status on their Garmin Edge 520 and 1000 devices. Both Garmin devices now integrate with ANT+ and provide a data field for both gear ratio (front gear/rear gear) and front and rear derailleur electronic battery status.
“This was something we promised with eTap and we’re excited it’s now available as consumers continually demand greater access to their data,” said SRAM Product Manager Brad Menna.
All of the updates for the Edge 520 and 1000 can be accessed via Garmin Express, which should prompt users to install the update the next time they plug their Garmin into a computer. No updates are required to SRAM RED eTap.
SRAM RED eTap comes as standard equipment on top 2016 complete bikes from brands including, but not limited to: Specialized, Giant, Trek, Focus and Canyon.
