That's odd, Just In Time.
When you say it's doing current and average, do you mean there's an option to show either, or is it displaying both at the same time?
I've had my 110 for about 18 months now, and am not aware of the current pace facility.
Problem sorted. Yup - it varies according to how fast you're going in that lap.
Still pretty useful imo.
I dont get this pace thing, i was looking to get a GPS watch which whilst running i could look at the watch and it would tell me i was running a x pace at whatever point in the mile i was running- does the 110 not do this?
This is an issue with GPS in general. None of them show real-time pace properly - I think it's down to the amount of computing power needed but I could be wrong.
However, footpod models like the Garmin FR60 do show real-time pace and do it well, but of course they're not GPS so you don't get mapping and navigation.
I loved my 110 - when it worked. After about 6 months the first one stopped taking a charge properly and eventually was just dead. Garmin swapped it for me for a "refurbished" one that was a bit tatty but did work. Until a couple of weeks ago when it stopped taking a charge once again. and now doesn't work at all. It's just out of the 1 year guarantee. I've asked Garmin what I can do but they haven't replied yet. It was great when it worked, but I think I'll look for a different brand in future.
I had a 405 and I found the instant pace feature jumped around too much to be useful. With the 110 you can set the auto-lap to a minimum of 400m and it will tell you the current average pace over the distance so far. I found this much more accurate and useful.
p.s. I complained above but having had a good play with it last night I think it's actually the charger clip that's the problem and not the device itself.
Elevations can be all over the place. After uploading a recent run, I noticed that at one point I'd plummeted into a 200m hole, then immediately climbed out of it. Funny, coz I don't remember that actually happening.
Can any help, my garmin 110, says that I'm running the first in double figures!!!. When I know I'm as my running buddy has his garmin we run at the same pace and his records us doing around 9.00 / 9.30. So why is this on my garmin 110? It's only the first mile.
