Garmin Updates EDGE 530/830 to v7.0

The list of updates is massive, and it’s not just for the 530. If you have an 830/1030/1030 Plus they also are getting some love, but I don’t have those guys, so sorry, you’re on your own ;). Fantastically, it looks like you don’t even have to use Garmin Express to get it now, as each post (linked here) includes the download.
