I'm thinking about getting a Countour, either the HD, or the ContourGPS.

If you're going to use Dashware to synch Garmin data anyway, is there any  value in getting the ContourGPS?

Not really.

- You'd be paying for two GPS units
- The Waterproof housing doesn't work with the ContourGPS
- ContourGPS doesn't give you the Cadence and HR Data (Assuming you have that data from your Garmin), and Power, if you have that too...That is the cool data to import into Dashware.

The only cool feature that the ContourGPS has in my opinion is the ability to use a smarphone as a viewfinder via Bluetooth..but, I have never had an issue lining up my camera while bike mounted.

A first ever road ride.

My nephew Dustin gives road cycling a try for the first time. Still shaky and unsure of the gears but practice takes care of that.

There is something so great about seeing a smile on a kid's face. It reminds me of why I still cycle today and why it's been such a part of my life. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome. Simply awesome. Brought back so many great memories of my past.

Nice job, Auntie.

Along with being funky weird, you are definitely funky cool. Wasn't sure what to think when I clicked on the video, but the smile on his face said it all.


Very nice.

Well thanks I think..... Yes, he was all smiles, and had a great time. Riding is all about having fun and staying fit while doing it.

Very cool Psycho Bird. Great to see a kid riding. Too few these days.

Does he need his seat raised a bit?

Ignoring the time honored  show biz wisdom of not following animals or children, my first ride with the new contour:

And there is a limitation in the dashware "bicycle gauge"  It  maxes out at 600 watts.  If you watch the guage it's pegged at 600 for a bit.

Haha, I made the gauge and I did the scale to 600 because I don't usually go over that... You can edit it to show more.

For us computer illiterates, how would you edit the gauge to make the scale go up to 1000?
