Sorry for yet another Garmin thread but I've had a quick look if I can find anything re this problem on here and I can't. Basically I think my Garmin is slightly under-measuring the distances I run.
In my last 4 training runs I've downloaded the info into Sport Tracks and on each occasion the distance Sport Tracks says I've covered is about 0.25 of a mile further than my Garmin says. Then on Saturday I ran a 10 mile race (exactly 10 miles on SportTracks too) but again my Garmin says 9.80 miles.
Anyone had anything similar and if so is there an easy remedy? It's not a massive problem really, but one I'd like to sort out even if it's just to view my mile splits accurately.
Any help gratefully received!
OK cheers for that - makes sense!! It's not a problem as such really - more just a little bit annoying I guess, but only cos I usually pour over my stats and mile splits afterwards and try to work out where I've lost time.
It's only really started doing it in the last 2 weeks or so too (seemingly) - there was often a 0.05 or so difference between Garmin and SportTracks but that's by the by really - but when I've been getting differences of 0.3 of a mile I had wondered if something was maybe wrong.
Not to worry - I think I'll just crack on and adopt your strategy - sounds good advice!
