800 setup to follow a course
Hoping someone can help me correct my errors in trying to follow a course on the 800.
For trail riding I have
Map>Track up, Guide Text>Never Display
Routing>Bicycle, Guidance>Off Road,Lock on Road>No.
Go to begining of course Select Course>Spanner>Turn Guidance >off, Course Warnings>on then hit GO and start timer.
Does this sound correct? It looks like I am following the course but there is no recorderd data from the ride. Any ideas and thoughts are appreciated.
You still need to start the timer to record data :-)
You know I found that just selecting the course, go, AFTER you start your timer is just easier. It will ask you if you want directions to the start, and I always say "no". When you hit the beginning, it will say "course found" and you are good to go.

Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.
Thiel and Z, Thanks for the replys I think that saying yes to nav to course begining was part of my problem and I probably should verify it is started after I hit start. Sometimes with full finger gloves it is haer to tell that it actually clicked. Thanks again.
