Saw this little beauty called the barfly. It seems like a great idea to get the edge off the stem/bar and out in front.
Not so good on a mtb but would be fantastic on the roadie.

I'm going to ask Santa for a GPS bike computer, and am interested in opinions on the best make / model to get. I don't need maps, just stats and HR. I know Garmins are popular, and I've read good things about Bryton. Anyone have any advice for me? I mean for Santa?

I've had a quick hack at turning the blurry and pixelated maps that C2C have published into track files for my GPS. These are not official, may not be correct, but are just my interpretation of what I've seen from the web site. Here are the first two as .gpx files:
i have been trying to download the trail maps from NOBMOB to a garmin gps. the KML files open perfectly fine in Google Earth however i have been unable to convert these files to a .gpx or .crs file. i think the issue is that the .kml files that come directly from the website have embedded http:// links to other data files. google earth seems happy to dynamically pull these links in however all of the conversion utilities that i can find just port the "http://blahblahblah" link and thus not the base coordinate data.
ok, i've not had broadband for a while and am now back in the land of the living with my new connection. i've been saving all my rides on my gps and they all show up on the history section. i've gone to upload them onto my inbox on motionbased and after initially uploading for a while it says once comlete that there are no new rides on my device!!!! what gives???
by the way, some of you already know i'm far from being an I.T. expert but this is a fairly basic task!
I have exported the route created on bikely and tried to load it in my Edge 305 but I am having dificulties. Has anyone loaded routes from bikely before or am I doing something wrong. To load to the GPS unit I am using the Motionbased Agent but it says something like invalid file.
PS. If someone has the Edge 305 and could test it using the below link that would be great
I was looking for software for free that I could use on my PDA Dopod
D810 aka HTC P3600 which has inbuilt GPS. I came across:
Provides tracking info and data such as altitiude, distance, time etc
unfortunately no HR ability.
Unsure on battery life as can't ride at present due to a hand injury
at the dam but a test in the car with the file saved to a kmz file
and emailed to my PC showed excellent accuracy with distance markers.
I just downloaded a free app on my iPhone from the app store called MotionX-GPS. I got the light version which is free and there is another version which you pay about $3 for. The free one is unreal, but i may end up getting the paid version to support this great developer.
Anyhow below is the information that it gave me after a ride when i chose the option to email the ride (track) to me. To test it i just did a road ride around Homebush and didn't start it properly until i got to Silverwater.
