    Tracking Miles

    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, I didnt find a "general" section, but I wanted to find out what gadget you guys use to track the distance riding. All the gps's I am looking at dont specifically say if they store Distance traveld or not so i wanted to get some oppinions on what my options are.

    Thanks in advance!

    All the GPS's I've ever seen including cheap ones could show speed and distance travelled. You may have to go into the set-up if you want it displayed on the main screen but I think they all have this info.
    Also, if you adjust your paddlewheel so the speed reads close to your GPS speed you will get fairly accurate results with the trip meter on the machine. The paddlewheel has been known to vary quite a bit though even when set-up correctly.

    I didnt notice that my ski has a trip meter? Going to have to look into that!
