I called Garmin SA last week and was told that they are waiting for stock - 2 weeks. Apparently, is the SA SKU needed that includes mapping for our region. so it's anybody's guess when it'll be available

Does anyone know if WhatsApp messages come through on the 530 ?

 

(Please don't start a debate about whether or not you want WhastApp while you ride)

 

Possibly also check if "Telegram" comes through the 530 ....

 

 

Apparently Telegram is friendlier towards third party applications than WhatsApp ....

They do on a Fenix 5, so stands to reason they will on the 530.

Hi Splat

 

Yes WhatsApp messages will come through on your Edge 530.

You might have to enable it on the unit and on your phone. But it does work and come thorugh on the Edge 530.

If I'm lucky enough to get one (read afford), I hope this is true.

it took many frustrating emails to Garmin when the 520 plus was released to verify this.

Which no one could, then did, then didn't, then weren't sure, then did, then eventually verified it would not be the case.

 

would be super helpful if it's the case with the 530

Seems that the 945 is still not shipping locally either. I'm in need of longer battery on my 520 for an upcoming cycling holiday. I'm going to have to pull the trigger soon on the 520+ or the 530. waiting breathlessly....

Can you not fit a Garmin Charge Power Pack - https://shop.navworld.co.za/garmin-charge-power-pack.html ? Supposed to double battery time even if it is expensive. Otherwise, look at a dynano hub front wheel and usb charger

Not on the 520 I think.  It has to have those contact points at the base of the mount.............
