Sorry, "<" and ">" characters are not allowed.
Uploaded a 17mi route, and it says it has over 2500 track points. I read that my Ambit2S can only handle and navigate routes with less than 1000 track points. Is that correct? Do I need to upload the route into GPSies and slim down the track points to less than 1000? How does one do a 50mi or 100mi route?
My solution for this: (I use this database of tracks: http://www.routeyou.com/nl-be/user/view/124619/wy-homepage.nl ) 1.Export the desired track as GPX. 2.Use GPSbabel (http://www.gpsbabel.org/ ) to do the next conversion(s): 2a.The original GPX can't be read in Movescount, so I output this GPX with option 'Format: GPX XML'. 2b.Button 'Filters' has the option 'Routes and Tracks' where you can simplify the GPX downto e.g. 1000 points.
Other option: splitting the GPX in 1000 pnts-GPX pieces.
Start2Run- I think you answered the question. Yes- I need to shrink the track down to less than 1000 points in order to use it as a route. Which- I use GPSies.com for (similar to your suggested tools I suppose). Funny- my Garmin 405 doesn't have any problem with the 2500pt route. ???
I use GPSBabel already for years. Don't know what the quality of GPSies conversions and route/track-points reduction is at this time. In the past I had complaints.
Ambit can store a lot of routes/tracks. In the past I did a 1000K cycling with my daughter ( http://www.routeyou.com/nl-be/group/view/5874/van-nieuwpoort-tot-arlon.nl , along 'only' rivers and creeks -no canals-), a lot of points were needed. I splitted this up per river or creek, ending up with around 14 consecutive GPX...
it sounds like you are saying that you needed to split a single route up into multiple smaller routes in order to live within the 1000pt limitation. Is that correct? Will I need to do this for a 50mi trail run? (either that, or reduce the number track points).
What are your objectives? Assume the original 'long' GPX is accurate and directs well small corners and deviations from straight directions (in most cases this is not! -except my routes, I edit to match reality-):
1.Is ACCURACY most important, i.e. the track/route should reflect well the true path: Split the GPX into pieces. The true distance of the original GPX is not violated then, you will have correct feedback on the distance to go.
2.Else: Reduce the track points with an intelligent tool
Just got the Ambit2S. Would like to upload some of my recent Garmin tracked runs into Movescount. I've been able to upload the .gpx files as a route, but the full workout data (HR, time) didn't get there. How do I import a move?
Hello all! I was hoping someone who knows about all the numbers after a workout could possibly help me out. I seem to always train up into a PTE of 4-5, but I feel fine afterwards. Also, the kcal burn moves count gives me is way above what estimates are on other websites. I just want to make sure I'm not doing something wrong.
Hi Erewnoh! Check page 8 here: http://ns.suunto.com/pdf/Suunto_Training_Guidebook_EN.pdf BTW - it's very unlikely you would be reaching always PTE 4, 5. Most likely you haven't set up properly your REST_HR and MAX_HR. The first you can measure with http://www.movescount.com/apps/app10011524-Sleep_Monitor_-_Rest_HR_identification. And for MAX_HR you need to do some serious effort (e.g. run as fast as you can for 3min, then walk for 2min, and repeat until you cannot do anything anymore).
Just don't relay on the formula: (220-AGE) - in my case it is about 20bpm off (and many other people report the same. If you set your MAX_HR too low, then your reported PTE, calories, etc. are much higher than they should be. I recommend this article: http://completerunning.com/archives/2006/11/02/how-to-accurately-determine-your-maximum-heart-rate-have-an-out-of-body-experience-at-the-same-time/
Hello! Did someone use Storm Alarm App? How does it work? Can I see notification on the screen? Will it be on the main display or only in training mode?
Thank You! Dina
Hi everybody, someone can explain me what is " R-R" we find among moves count values? thanks in advance!!!
Hi OrsoGio, simply said: R-R is a beat-to-beat interval, and 'R' letter corresponds to the 'R-part' of the QRS peak in an ECG wave. Again - each heart beat is reflected in the ECG diagram as a single QRS peak; hence, R-R interval is the time distance between heart beats measured in ms. For more check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_rate_variability and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QRS_complex . You may also google for Suunto white papers (e.g. on: Recovery, Training Effect, EPOC, etc.)
