Does it all suck?
I've been using a Garmin 305 for a month now, and I've come to the conclusion that all software that hooks into/works with this thing all sucks. I try to load my last ride into Training Center, and it barfs a lung. Load it into MotionBased, and my cadence data disappears, and it has all the responsiveness of a lobotomy patient on valium. My circa 1972 World Book encyclopedia has maps that are more complete than those in TC. Of course, there is also the utter incomprehensibility of the user manual. It tells me I have a virtual partner--that is great and wonderful. Of course, to figure out how to program the virtual partner, you have to use the virtual manual, that exists in the virtual world where Garmin 305 companion software doesn't suck.
