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.

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?

Looks like Highway 422 needs a draw bridge for you.

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

Sonofa you really need to set up a Global Regatta course. You've got all the gear to start racing for fun!

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...
