Post by ml1850 »

Anyone know of an app to log descents,distance,etc for kayaking? Something like Strava for cyclists. Thanks ML

I've used my Garmin bike computer in a aquapac, kept it in my BA pocket.
I just uploaded it to Strava & saved it as White Water Kayaking in the categories that they have.

Poop.

Was that from when you could select kayaking rather than cycling/running?

They were all cycling segments.
I put in a ticket asking them to transfer them to kayaking.
The helpdesk person said they couldn't, and two days later they were all deleted.
When I responded to ask why they'd deleted them, he said that he hadn't (He blatantly had. The entire list I sent him was deleted, but any segments I'd left off the list hadn't been).
I asked for them to be reinstated (i'd found a way to save them out, so they could potentially be re-uploaded as kayaking segments) and he said that he couldn't as they were permanently deleted.

A few months later I put in a separate ticket asking for one of them to be re-instated. This one went through to a different helpdesk person, and it was re-instated with no problems. Not had the time/inclination to do every single one of them individually.

Very frustrating.

Ah! That's poor from the helpdesk person.

There have been some fast 'claims' to a few sections, might have to jolly people to start strava'ing again and see if the claims stand up, when some actual precipitation arrives.

Depends what sort of logging you want.

If you are primarily interested in performance then Garmin and/or Strava are useful - looking primarily at speed, heart rate, power output etc. The details of where exactly you went are relatively less important in those aps.

If you are primarily interested in navigation and route-finding then Viewranger may be better. It can be made to work on ordnance survey maps downloaded to your smartphone/tablet/whatever and so navigating and recording routes is much clearer. And Viewranger will still let you import/export GPX files, which can then be uploaded to Strava if you want to put aroute up there. It is a free ap which gives open source maps for free but has a reasonable charge for premium (i.e. OS) mapping.
