    SportTracks smoothing for Edge 305

    I had been wondering why SportTracks had been showing a lower total ascent than the Edge 305 for all my rides, until someone pointed out the track smoothing setting. I discovered it makes a huge difference, as in a factor of 3 or more, between a setting of 120 seconds (the default I think) and 0 or 1 seconds.

    What should this value be set to, and how can I tell what the best/right value is? What are you all using?

    Thanks for the heads up! I had just left all the settings at default. I go back and forth with SportTracks for fitness data, and TopoFusion for ride stats, and had wondered why the difference, but had not followed up. With the setting you suggest, they work out the same. I guess it depends on how you want your data, raw (low 0-1) or smoothed.(120).
