    Its pretty easy as long as you don't get one that was possessed like mine was. Wink

    The whole world said I shoulda used red but it looked good to Charlene in John Deere Green!!

    Run for fun? What the hell kind of recreation is that?  quote from Back to the Fut III

      Does anyone know if your supposed to reset it (hold down the lap button) before each run? If I don't reset it, sometimes mine will continue the previous days run and not start a new one. When that happens I have to export to SportTracks, export the GPS data, delete the previous day's points, then import into SportTracks again. It's a pain in the butt!

        I reset before each and every run for exactly the reason you mentioned.

        Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.

            Holding down the lap button is how you tell it that you're done with one "event" and want to start a new one. Continuing with the last event is exactly what the Garmin is supposed to do if you don't end that event by holding down the reset button. There is another key sequence that actually does a software reset on it. Something like power and mode held at the same time. The only major glitch I've had with mine is erratic behavior once the lap database memory was close to or actually filled up. At that point, I had to dump the data to sporttracks and erase all the data on the watch.
            I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.
