The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.

Me and my gang in Breck
First, I'll admit I'm not Gizmo Girl. But, I did take the new Garmin 205 out the other day and after loading it onto the computer, successfully got that great dotted yellow line representing my route. Maybe I missed it...totally possible...but I've read all the help in the training center, there's nothing that I could find in the manual...so hopped onto the Garmin site. Looks like in order to see more detail I may have to upload a set of maps??? All I get right now is the route (which was in the woods) and then the xway with no other surrounding roads. I can't see how to get more detail w/o uploading more maps (additional expense??) which I wasn't aware of. I thought before I spent more time on it I'd consult my "living encyclopedia" here on RA!!
That which does not kill us makes us stronger. Neitzsche "Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go." "Dedication and commitment are what transfer dreams into reality."
My biggest problem with all of these, besides lack of cross-platform support, is the lack of ability to edit or to zoom in.
SportTracks allows you to fully edit your GPS waypoints -- move them, delete them, whatever -- or add your own new waypoints in order to smooth a track.
- Yeah. THAT IS COOL! Of course RunningAhead will let you do that once it uploads GPS, eh Eric?
Berner you run in Chicago most of the time, right? How do you find it does near tall buildings? Mine is totally lost downtown. In fact the buildings dont have to be that tall if I'm close to them. If I'm running next to a 4 story building that is right up against the sidewalk the Garmin is totally miffed.
Works great in suburbia and one of the things I'm really looking forward to is running on trails with it when the snow is gone.
