Will my cadence reading be derived from my PowerTap Power Meter or from the Garmin Cadence Sensor?

When using an Edge that is paired up to a PowerTap power meter and a Garmin Speed/Cadence bike sensor (GSC 10) or Garmin Bike Cadence Sensor (BCS), it may be noted that each accessory is capable of transmitting cadence.

When using a PowerTap hub and a cadence sensor at the same time, the Edge devices will report cadence through the separate cadence sensor. However, if the cadence sensor is not present, cadence will be reported through the PowerTap hub.
