(If I can fix my fan on my laptop today so it boots up, I’ve got a post sitting in drafts about just that…)

Comment on How to train indoors with your Garmin device by Peter Mason http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2010/01/how-to-train-indoors-with-your-garmin.html#comment-1707281 Sun, 25 Sep 2016 15:38:30 +0000 http://localhost/dcrm/?p=854#comment-1707281 Hi DCR
I do hope that you can help.
I noticed this fairly old post while looking for some advice about Garmin Connect. I have recently moved from a Polar V650 to an Edge 1000. I cycle MTB and road and do crossfit training. Polar Flow worked with the Edge and my Polar FT80. GC is a far nicer package and the Edge is streets ahead of the V650, but what do I use to record crossfit training other than to keep the Edge in my pocket?
I would be grateful for any advice.
Thank you for an excellent site. It is hands down the best equipment review site on the web.
Regards
P

But you’re looking at 10,000+ photos on something like a 64GB card (usually cost about $15-20). Video will depend on what resolution you specify.

2) Splash/rain, but not immersion (due to the connector primarily)
3) Just video

Comment on Troubleshooting your heart rate monitor/strap HR spikes by Marcus http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2010/04/troubleshooting-your-heart-rate.html#comment-1707252 Sun, 25 Sep 2016 15:08:26 +0000 http://localhost/dcrm/?p=815#comment-1707252 My solution for heartrate reading dropouts, which didn’t even stop after replacing the HR strap with a new one and drove me nuts, was to open the transmitter pod and applying WD-40 spray (link to en.wikipedia.org) to the contacts inside (between the battery and the pod) and the connectors between the pod and the strap.

WD-40 also helped me making my Suunto Ambit work again after one of its buttons didn’t move anymore last winter after about a particular wet and cold run. Great universal product.

Thanks for this thread and the website, Ray and everybody who participates in the comments. Hope I can add something valuable for another reader, too, with this and helps saving some bucks erringly spent on new HR straps.
