Garmin Connect

Just as we are all getting to grips with MotionBased Garmin has announced the new site will be called Garmin Connect.

This anouncement totally slipped by me as I was preoccupied with the Edge 705 anouncement. Hope it doesn’t change too much and the old links work as I now have over 70 rides on MotionBased.
I suppose it had to come as I don’t really use the Trailnetworks side and I don’t look at any of the running routes.
The Forerunner 50 sounds quite good value at $99 . This is going to give Polar a very hard time. Some of their basic models are close to that and don’t have gps on them.

One thought on “Garmin Connect”

  1. Hey Frank, Garmin Connect was announced the same day as they announced the new (605 and 705) devices 🙂
    I hope it’s an improvement in terms of speed over Motionbased, it’s so slow that I don’t bother using it anymore. When I first got my Edge 305HR, I would religiously upload all my rides to it, but it’s so slow for browsing and seeing other people’s rides, I got bored of it 😐

    Anyway, I’m confident Connect will be an improvement!

    See you outside Aldi’s on Thursday morning, we’ll need big elbows to stop people getting past us 😉
    Dave.
