... if you'd like me to get your routegadget cleaned up. I would:
  • contact Valerie and ask for her to delete your current route
  • re-upload and adjust to match reality (whatever that is)

    Because I really want to see! :)

    Great job sticking with it. That map is amazingly dense!! Definitely the hardest thing when West-Pointing (particularly when accounting for the way-too-long courses).

    Thanks. I don't know how to "contact Valerie" and have her delete the course. The issue is clearly that I didn't start my watch for 3 plus minutes. If anyone out there knows how to delete a course without bugging Valerie, let me know.
    So, my RouteGadget skills are equivalent to my orienteering-Sunday skills.

    Your RG track has been deleted. (You can't do it yourself.)

    Thanks, Sandy! More after meetings.

    Zowie: Ann and Brian chauffeur me around all weekend, I screw up Day 2. I screw up RG. Sandy (and Val?) delete the screwed up RG. Hugh volunteers to fix things.
    That's FIVE people involved with keeping me afloat. Thanks much. Really appreciated. It takes a borough - in Swarthmore we're calling it "aging in place".

    I like to feel needed, so you checked that box! ;)

    When I uploaded it, it already put in a 3m:10s 'offset', so I don't think it changed. Good to go (as it's going to get). Pretty whacky S > 1.

    AFTER I got to #1, the route shown is accurate. Before that - not at all. For example, I stayed on the trail (conservative, right), scampered below #1, went all the way to #3 and then, finally to #1. Alien intervention? Temporary satellite shut-down?

    If you have it aligned to splits it probably shows the originally posted route. You might have better luck uploading from a computer and manually adjusting where you punched the controls.

    Valerie's email is Vmeyer9086 at aol dot com

    Likely poor satellite connection at start, particularly if the watch didn’t have time to get a good lock. Janet: I tried that, too, with identical results. Just a mediocre track to #1. We all know you went down the trail. :)

    To clarify: I could have manually done the bits to #1 to get it all to align, but not worth the work.
