NEW Bike Speed Sensor and Bike Cadence sensors (BSS & BCS)
Some older Garmin units only support concurrently connecting to EITHER the speed-only sensor or the cadence-only sensor (or a combo sensor).
Basically, the pairing menu only allows you to connect to one sensor in that category.
DCRainmaker has confirmed that the Edge 500/510/800/810/1000 all are fine, as is the FR910XT, Fenix2.
The vast majority of non-Garmin units support it just fine since those companies often sold the single-profile sensors (whereas Garmin never did).
On your unit, you’re looking for the menu option that says “Speed and Cadence Sensors”, as a separate line from Speed/Cadence sensor and Speed-only and Cadence-only sensors. So if you have four categories to choose from, you’re good. Three categories – then you’re limited on concurrent sensors.
