  • Plug your Edge head unit into your computer via USB cable and ensure that it shows up as an external drive on your computer:

  • Expand the .zip file from your downloads folder, and copy the aero-ciq-*.prg file contained within to the Garmin/Apps folder on your device:
  • Unplug the head unit from your computer and power it on. Navigate to the IQ App selection screen and select AeroLink IQ.

Out & Back Tests

The AeroPro communicates the with AeroLink IQ which, in turn, displays the current state of the test to the rider, for example:

Each state has its own icon, making it easy for the rider to understand

FIT Recording

AeroLink IQ can create a standard FIT file containing the relevant information for the athlete’s rides; pushing the Edge’s Start/Stop button will toggle the beginning and ending of data recording. When recording is active there will be a small icon and “REC” label in the top of the screen (as seen in the screenshot above).

Freeride Tests

AeroLink IQ should only used for out & back tests; the app is not required in freeride tests since the test is either active or not (as opposed to having multiple states while the test is active).
