Don't know if this will help but it might be worth trying, especially if you just did a software update. I have a 520 and it gets frequent software updates. After an update it ends up just showing the Garmin screen and seems to be bricked because nothing else works - even the off button doesn't work. The solution is to just let it sit showing the Garmin screen for five or ten minutes so it can process and load the new software which seems to take a long time. It eventually opens onto the main screen.

Please perform pairing as described in you user's manual. Device must be paired before becoming available.

The reason is linked to startup of the device probably. I have same issue.

2 ways to improve :
1/ Startup your device
You need to startup device, and wait automatic change of the screen to the ride mode, from the sattellite search screen.
You also can check you have more than 4 sattellites before starting a ride. Altitude can only be computed when at least 4 sattellites are synchronized. So start your device in the open air, not indoor, nor close to a building.
Garmin devices start automatically and have probably a smoothing function that make altitude converge to the reality slowly from a started erroneous capture.

2/ Upload your ride on Garmin connect site, then apply altitude fix algorithm proposed. This algorithm will fix the altitude of your waypoints, both fixing pure altitude start issue, and also fixing denivellation computation, which is erroneous because of cumulation of errors.

Hope this helps
