Not quite there…

well, Sports Tracker worked just fine while driving the car, but on my bike ride today, it failed. Twice over the course of my ride it stopped logging GPS after about 1 mile. Every time I checked, the GPS had a fix – but that doesn’t mean that at the time it failed it did not – it’s a bit hilly out there, but it should have had a fix…

Suffice it to say that my “workout statistics” are somewhat biased… since the time continued to run, but the distance not…

Interestingly enough, the software DID identify the pictures I took on the route – but since the track ended prematurely, it didn’t know where to place them, except at the end point…

On the other hand, I figured out how to upload tracks and routes onto sports tracker (the option is very hidden away – both software and website are clearly beta…). So I made Google maps of a couple of rides (or potential rides), and uploaded them (using this link http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/gmaptogpx/ to convert them, plus some post-editing).
A GPX route (between [rte][/rte] tags) becomes a route, a track ([trk][/trk]) becomes a workout. So with some tricks, it is possible to post-edit. But that’s precisely NOT the point of this software….
