Tip 3 :
The trip odometer is really screwed up with the original settings when you first use the 64s.
Why ? Because even if you don’t move it, like sitting down for a break, it will keep on counting the miles, or in my case kilometres.
Now this isn’t funny as there you are walking around and you have no real idea how far you’ve walked
“From the Main Menu > Setup > Tracks > Record Method, set to Distance > Interval, ) set to 0.06 miles or for those using kilometers 0.10 Kms, (the original setting were 0000.01 if memory is correct), I’ve set it to distance, rather than time or auto, though this is for you to try.
With this setting change it should allow for GPS wandering and eliminate it. If you still find the trip counter sting ‘adding up’ you can always up the 0.10 to 0.12 / 0.15 for example .
Of course if Garmin had implemented an auto pause as they have in most of their GPS this wouldn’t be necessary.
This should now giving a more accurate distance reading, ‘a suivre’ as they say in French…….
