  4. Garmin Fenix 6 just launched https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/08/garmin-fenix6-pro-solar-series-review.html https://www.techradar.com/news/garmin-fenix-6-series-is-official-with-big-screens-and-new-running-tools
  5. Hoping to get some help here. I've googled around and can't find the exact thing, but I'm guessing if it's possible someone on here would have figured out how. The problem: I want to be able to view WHERE I am on an elevation profile for a certain route - quite practically, I've often done (Mtb) races and pulled out my phone to look at the elevation map, cross that to how many km's we've done, and been able to go "OK, looks like we have that x big climb left", or "we're this far now into that hard piece" etc. I'm wondering if somehow, using the EDGE 520's segments or route profiles, you
  6. I'm looking at purchasing a new Garmin watch. I have had a look at the Venu SQ i really like it A LOT! Any Venu SQ users out there that can maybe give me some insight on this piece of tech?
  7. So I am looking at buying the Fenix 6x. I'm leaning towards the Sapphire, but would probably have bought the Pro from Takealot for R9999 if I didn't miss that deal last week. The Pro is R12k at Takealot now, and the Sapphire is between R15k and R16k. At these prices I'll probably still go Sapphire (unless I get a really good deal on the Pro somewhere). I'm currently on a Fenix 3 (not Sapphire, not HR) I love the color of the bezel. Does this color compare to the 6x Sapphire bezel? Not so sure about the black on the Pro. Amazon is the same price as local after shipping, duties and having to
  8. Good morning technie/touring Hubbers! Planning on doing more long distance challenges this year incl. longer Audaxes etc. Been interested in the Edge Explore for some time since it was known as the Touring, but cannot find any evidence that it is sold in RSA. Seems more geared towards the European touring market. Anyone have one/seen one?
  9. Hi there Hubbers! First thread for 2020. Didn't reach top 10 for 2019 like I did in 2018, need to get back up there!! To those who own the FR945, or even any Garmin that has the Music capability - do you also face the issue that once you "activate" the music (holding bottom left button) and it searches for your BT earphones/headset, that if said earphones/headset isn't already turned on, and you turn it while the watches is searching, it refuses to connect? Then you have to "forget" the earphones, re-search (where it promptly finds it again)? I always forget to turn the earphones
  10. Hi Hubbers - Not sure if there is a thread like this so sorry if there is already one. I'm in the market for a decent cycling / gps computer.......navigation is not necessary but will be a added bonus. Main features to track your ride; display HR / Cadence / Power ect. I would really like to have a device where I can import a previous race and then compete against that time.....I assume this will be like virtual pacer? So if my previous CTCT time was 4hrs, I want to know how far I'm off in reaching the goal. Any advice or device you can recommend? Garmin / Wahoo / Bryton .........

  13. Which would you pick between the two? Any pros/cons.
  14. I am in the market for a bike computer, I have been deliberating between the Garmin Edge 530 and the Wahoo Elemnt Roam for quite some time now. This is more of a question on Wahoo South Africa's pricing than opinions between which is better (I am however still open to suggestions!) In South Africa, the Edge 530 (*listed at R6000) is nearly R2000 cheaper than the Element Roam (listed at R7999), fine. When observing UK prices. the Garmin Edge comes in at R5499 (at a R21.15 - GBP exchange rate), making it an 8% price increase in SA to UK. The Element Roam is listed at R6345 in the UK (again,
  15. Good morning folks, To those with a Forerunner 945 and using Deezer, who has had issues after the last update with syncing the music over Wifi? When I hold the bottom left button down to access my playlists, it just shows a blue IQ text with a small yellow exclamation mark. When I bypass that, and it does try to sync, after a short while it just says not all content can be downloaded at this time or something to that effect. Help will be appreciated. And please, don't tell me to use Spotify instead.

  25. This looks like a very interesting concept.
