General Instructions for First Use of Garmin Edge
I find that the manual for the Garmin edge 205 has some surprising omissions, like how to actually use it (as opposed to setting it up).
This is what I've figured based on experimentation. Let me know if I have it right. Note that I have turned Auto-pause to ON.
Let's say I'm riding to a mall, doing shopping, and riding back.
1. Turn on the Edge
2. Wait until the satellites page disappears
3. Press the start/stop button
4. Ride to the mall
5. Press the start/stop button, put Edge in pocket
6. Do shopping, return to bike
7. Press start/stop
8. Ride home
9. Press start/stop
10. Turn off Edge
Is that correct? Would that be recorded as one trip? If I turned off the edge at the mall instead of just pressing Start/Stop, would it be two trips?
