>General Running>Are these "Electronic GPS Devices" more harm than good? Lets talk Devices.
I am a pretty new runner. I dont have to worry about 40mile runs. But before I bought my Garmin, knew that 8 hours was a limiting factor, just not for me. - User Error seems the best response to this complaint.
Thank you all who have explained all the ways to run without GPS. I dont look at my GPS too closely, but since my life is hectic, I need to know if I am 2 or 4 miles away from my start because I need to get back, shower, and do something else. Also, when I run, my math gets fuzzy sometimes. So I have easily mistaken being 2 miles out as 4 or vice versa. GPS helps with that.
I have also used GPS to help me find my way back when trying out a new route. My phone GPS works, no map on my watch, but it does have a direction and distance to return to start.
