    Hello mountaineers! I have an expedition to Aconcagua planned on next february and I would like to know if any of you has used the Ambit 2 to record data on long expeditions (15-20 days). Main questions would be: How to record gps data AND save battery life? How to recharge on the go? Is it possible to record HR data on such a long trip?

      Hi, I am not sure about Ambit 2 but Ambit is possible to unofficially recharge by external battery pack (I use Goal Zero) or solar panel (I use Solar Monkey Adventurer).

      It is not problem to recharge Ambit but memory capacity is poor that is your only problem on long trips unless you carry laptop for sync.

      Downside of recharging is it destroys battery...slowly but steady. As Suunto said...it is designed for USB charging. Sometimes, you get problem with sync. You have to try it again.

      I use 10s record interval, which gives you few days of record. Nobody provided accurate data My experience is if capacity is about same like paper battery life (about 20 hours) in 1 sec mode. In 10 sec mode it is 200 hours. Longest interval without sync with computer was about 150 hours so it my be true my theory.

      My battery lasts about 8-12 hours in -20 deg Celsius. Then comes recharging with battery pack on short trips.

    Hi, I summited Aconcagua last week. If anyone is interested in the routes, altitudes or other numbers, it's all in my moves. (from december 27th till january 6th).

    And now a MANUAL version available as well: http://www.movescount.com/apps/app10019655-Hiking_Biking_xcountry_skiing_manual_lap . The app shows you for each lap: MAX and AVG SPEED, DISTANCE, ELEVATION CHANGE, SLOPE %INCLINE (or GRADIENT). The automatic version was recognizing laps based on min 20sec 'no move' interval - this feature has been eliminated in this version, which makes it more suitable for hiking. And if you like the idea of auto-lap recognition go for the previous version .

    New multi app for you - excellent for biking, hiking, xcountry-skiing, etc. http://www.movescount.com/apps/app10018294-Hiking_Biking_xCountry_Skiing_Analyzer - it automaticaly recognizes periods when you move and gives you info on max speed, % incline, elevation difference, max HR - no button pressing required. Enjoy!
