    Is there a better site to use then Motionbased?

    I was wondering if there is a better site to use to upload and analyze data from a garmin edge 305?
    I am not impressed with motionbased. I use the free service and don't think it is worth up grading to the payed service.
    I feel it is slow to up load. Does anyone have the upgraded service? Is it better? Faster?

    The upload is quick on my end (with the free service, even). What takes a little while is the post-processing. Motionbased post-processes the GPS data to improve accuracy.

    There are additional features you gain by upgrading to the paid service, but I haven't done it yet. I'm personally satisfied with the free service so far.

    I'm really not sure what you hope to gain from a different service. You didn't really elaborate on the possible shortcomings of motionbased for you. Really, it would help out if you told us what you want from it.

    I bought a two-year special from MB last December and it worked out to something around $4 a month.

    Frankly, MB is about all I use. The uploading can be slow but during "off' hours it is fine so I do my transfers early in the morning. I find myself constantly sending rides to my riding partners so they can see what we did. They find it fascinating.

    One thing I've noted is that the staff over there is very helpful and service oriented.

    There are others that you may want to explore such as:

    Take a look.

    I have been using SportTracks since I got my 305 a few weeks ago.
    I find it great.

    I too am using SportTracks and find it easier than the rest and you can get really cool styles of maps to choose without having to download a zillion different programs. I still use MB for the cool graph that ST doesn't have.
