    Neither of us really knows whether they're being made, but that isn't relevant. What's important is that they're being sold en masse.

    The question everybody is spilling so much ink over is what's...

    I don't know, but as a cyclist you can get one, new-in-the-box, in the $150 ballpark.

    If you park in downtown Cle Elum (because free street parking is available) it's 1,205 feet gain to the end of the pavement (over 43.6 miles). A lot of it is small ups and downs. Here's an...

    The "Live Tracking" thing is pretty nice, too. Before you ride, it sends your wife an email with a link, then as you ride it uploads your position and when she goes to the page it shows her where...

    Were they all text/email, or coming from other apps? You can allow/deny specific apps the right to notify your device in Garmin Connect Mobile if it's other stuff (eg you can say yes for email and...

    Before you get too excited about the feature in the Garmin, have a look at this:

    I'm not even a Strava member and I use their heat map to find good rides when I...

    32s will be fine if you do Teanaway Road, toddles. If you park in Cle Elum it's about 45 miles of pavement for the round trip, more if you want to go up the dirt road, and then I can't say what kind...

    A lot of GPSs measure long, eg if you ride 100 miles they might tell you it was 102 miles. You're riding in a fairly straight line most of the time, but GPS has a lot of jitter. Plus, depending how...

    I believe that. Their Explorist 710 will be my last Magellan, and probably my last hand-held hiking GPS.

    A few things:

    (1) I use that feature on a regular basis, literally every time I ride with cell reception.

    (2) What you're talking about is actually the reason companies make more than one...

    I've got an old Magellan hiking GPS unit. One of the hikes I did last year showed a distance of many thousands of miles; what happened was exactly what you're talking about. Zooming in to look at...

    Long before you get to Blewett, go left on T'way Road. It's the route to the Esmeralda and Ingalls Pass trails. I'd recommend parking in Cle Elum and riding out to 29 Pines.

    You can take back...

    I'm at a loss here. First you're saying the feature set in the Garmin doesn't matter because you don't understand the features. Next you're saying you can't just ignore features that are missing in...

    If you have the sensor you could prove that this isn't true by riding through a tunnel. If the speed sensor isn't used, your speed will drop to zero or null.

    Yes. But probably not by much (outdoors).

    I don't use the speed sensor with my Edge 800 or Fenix 3. The two of them are remarkably close at the end of each ride, it's typical for them to differ...

    Samsung's Galaxy phones cost in the ballpark of $600. People don't realize that because they pay for the phone by overpaying for service every month, in exchange for a phone subsidy. But if you...

    PS - More and more phones these days have barometric altimeters and aren't limited to (not very good) GPS elevation.

    The Apple Watch isn't seen as a competitor to Garmin's fitness products, for several reasons. Even "Cult of Mac" wrote an article about how Garmin's watch is better than Apple's, for running etc.

    A text is probably better than a voice call in an emergency anyway. You get your message across faster, the recipient can be in a noisy place, you need less battery power and less network access to...

    That stopped being true a long time ago.

    Most people these days have a device in their pocket with instant access to almost all the world's accumulated knowledge. And use it to watch cat videos.

    How important is weight in a MTB? The gearing is so low I feel like if I can't climb something on the bike I'd need a rope for it anyway.
