I use my smartphone for 100 miles rides without any issues, it could easily do double that if I was up to it. Is that short for you?
So, you're saying, on your word, that you will use a smartphone w/ GPS tracking and data acquisition in its entirety for the full duration of 200+ miles, in-and-out-of mobile coverage, and still expect it to have enough battery life to serve its actual purpose which is making phone calls in case of emergency?
Really? Without an extra battery?
Bullocks. Utter bullocks.
And, to me, 100 mile rides are short, btw.
Garmin 500 user, by the way, and if you'll notice elsewhere in this forum where other Garmin models were discussed I have expressly stated no interest in upgrading anytime soon. I am not a fanboy of any brand in any aspect of my life, as everything I use is specifically chosen for the cost/quality/value it has for my needs and goals in use of said product. That's pretty much my modus operandi
