Has anyone bought a polar product with this version 5 of the PPP software. 

 

I believe its only available on certain new product ranges and as yet no ugrade is available for current v4 users.

 

The download v5 availabe is only a trial copy and of no use. However if you have purchased a new product from polar you may get version 5 as part of te deal.

 

I have contacted polarhelp desk international/local and they seem quite tight lipped about any upgrade free or otherwise. The idea that i need to purchase a new product simply to get hold of the latest version sticks in my throat..

 

Yet they seem to think this is ok some how.

 

I would like to copy your version 5, maybe they will wake up and make an upgrade available to their current clients and not fob us off.

Garmin.

Just buy a Garmin and you won't have to get involved in the whole Polar price fixing, software secrecy, send it to Jhb when it breaks saga. I needed something done on my Garmin and it was same day local service with a smile and massive discount for being a nice guy.

 

I love my Garmin I do.

Oh BTW SaddleSore

 

You only have to buy a Polar product once to get the software registered.  All future upgrades of the software is FOC and downloadable from the Polar Website.

Polar Website has version 4.03.043 for downloads still.

 

That version of the software was issued during March 2006 !

 

They have brougt out a newer range of heart rate monitors that work in conjuntion with certain of the Adidas range of running shoes, but the top of the range watch which replaces the 625x which I have, retails for approx R4 500.

 

Personally, given the choice if I have to replace my 625x I would probably seriously consider the Garmin Forerunner 305 due to the added functionality of the GPS mapping software.

I sent them an Error report on Version 4 today.  Will let you know if they will do anything or make me move to version 5.

The problem I have is that the start screen keeps refreshing, and I tried their troubleshoot thing, not that it is any help...

What model replaces the 625x?

The 625x is still available' date=' but the new top of the range watch is the RS800

The cycling version is the CS600 I believe.  Why don't you guys just download the trial and install the full version when it is available as an upgrade.  Just backup you user data and recover when you install the new version.

Spoke to Polar guys this morning...

CS600 is not quite the replacement for 625x either, as the CS600 is a Handle Bar Mounted Cycle Computer - Same as CS100 & CS200, whereas the 720/725x/625x is a wearable HRM with Cycling (and Running for 625x) functions
