- Garmin Edge 200 altitude query
No, think the bottom field can be switched between altitude, total climb and ….????…
It’s a great value bit of kit, just a bit of a shame you know it’s capable of so much more but artificially limited. For example, the time would be nice.
 I’m wrong – average speed, total ascent and calories burned at the bottom. Really could have done with something more useful than the calorie estimatePosted 5 years agoDoctorRadSubscriber
I’d not be using GPS for altitude measurement, at least not as a navigation aid. Altitude accuracy is around 1.5x worse than horizontal accuracy, so you’ll be luck to get much better accuracy than 25m even with a clear view of the sky. And of course, 25m vertically is rather different to 25m laterally.
If you want accurate climb data from your GPX files, upload them to bikehike.co.uk or GPSVisualizer.com, either of which will resample the altitude data using a publicly available digital elevation model.Posted 5 years ago
No, I’ve not bought one already but thought it was a good fit.
I don’t really need super-accurate height data on the trail, just to know where I am on a climb (was handy in the alps last week).
Might have a look at Bryton or MotoActv instead – any other recommendations for simple bar mounted gps computers?Posted 5 years ago
