To pair your Stage Power Meter with your Stage Dash device, first activate your Power Meter by turning the cranks 2-3 rotations, then go to:

m50/l50 script: main menu > manage sensors > add sensors > search via ant or search via bluetooth > select the power meter from the list.

script l10: main menu > [activity name] sensors > add sensors > ant sensors or bluetooth sensors > select the power meter from the list.

  • Your power meter should appear in the bluetooth and ant sensor list so you can choose which method to use to pair the device. be sure to verify that the 4-5 digit ID number shown in the sensor list matches the ant+ ID listed on the power sensor.
  • after successfully paired, use the zero reset button on the home screen [l10] or hold the enter button and select zero reset [m50/l50] to perform a zero reset on your energy meter.

We recommend bypassing the “search” function by directly entering the power meter ID. from here select “sensor details” and enter the ant+ id of the crank arm.

ant+ identification can be found on the silver label on the crank arm below the power meter capsule. it also appears on the card that came in the box with the power meter.

under “sensor details”, enter the 4-5 digit ant+ id of your crank. note: for the 910xt, press and hold the scroll button to adjust the number. the longer you hold it down it will scroll 1s, 10s, then 100s for edge 500, if you have a 4 digit ant+ id enter 0 for the first digit. After you have entered all the digits, select “done” from the number selection. this should take you back to the previous page. from here, there is no need to press search. just turn the crank to activate the power meter and when the main unit detects it for the first time, it should show “power sensor found” on the screen.

if you have the latest garmin firmware, it may also appear and ask you to calibrate. Before calibrating, first turn the left crank to the 6 o’clock position and make sure you are off the bike.

once you’re ready, select “yes” and it should return a calibration value to set the zero offset for your power meter. if it doesn’t appear, you can select ‘calibrate’ at any time from the settings > bike settings > bike 1 > ant power+ > then select “calibration”. this will always be an option once the power meter is connected and paired with the main unit.

ant+ identification can be found on the silver label on the crank arm below the power meter capsule. it also appears on the card that came in the box with the power meter.

under “sensor details”, enter the 4-5 digit ant+ id of your crank preceded by 0 to take up any extra space. eg if you have 7 blanks you may need to add 2-3 0’s before your ant+ id depending on if it is a 4 or 5 digit id. after you have entered the id, select the check icon. from here, there is no need to press search. just turn the crank to activate the power meter and when the main unit detects it for the first time, it should show “power sensor found” on the screen.

once you are connected, you can now calibrate the power meter. on the home screen, select the ‘tools’ icon > bike profiles > bike 1 (or applicable profile) > power icon > calibrate. The left crank must be in the 6 o’clock position with no weight on the pedal to continue. once you’re ready, follow the prompts to calibrate and it should correctly return a 3-digit number.
