Re: My Speed , My path on the lake!

Anyone can go "sideways" pretty fast...

How long did it take you to cross the lake..? 2 hrs +..?

To go 8 Miles..? 4 MPH not 4 Min/Mi...

Re: My Speed , My path on the lake!

Looking at the elevation gain you must have been sailing uphill a lot of the time, that would explain it

Looks like Highway 422 needs a draw bridge for you.

Re: My Speed , My path on the lake!

Whats with the elevation gain? Is that the GPS being dithered or is it the accuracy of the recording device/software?

Re: My Speed , My path on the lake!

I've noticed the same sort of elevation gain when tracking myself on a similar app. I always figured that it was just wrong about the elevations, but I wonder if it could also be an error in the way locations are sampled.

Perhaps we should be more concerned that he seems to be stuck in the middle of the lake
