Re: [RC] Timex GPS - Karen Williams

There is no measuring of anything. You don't have to pre-set anything.   You
put on the watch and strap the transceiver to your arm, or belt or whatever.
The transceiver gets information from satellites which track movement and
measure distance.  Its a total no-brainer which is exactly what I need.
Stride does not matter -- there is nothing to set.   You start off going
0.00 mph and have gone 0.0 miles.  As soon as you (on the horse or whatever)
start to move, the numbers start to change.  Its amazing.

O.k., maybe I haven't had enough coffee yet, but can
someone clear this up for me - with the Timex Gps
watch, we are measuring how far we (as in me, not the
horse) has gone and how fast, right? I mean its all
relative because "me" is being moved along by a horse,
but hopefully you understand what I'm getting at! Do
you have to pre-set an odometer on the watch, I don't
recall anyone saying that. And so then I would have to
measure my horse's stride...how??? And if you are
changing pace from walk to trot to canter to trot to
walk, etc...how accurate is the reading (since the
stride is always changing length).
I'm going to get some coffee now. :)
