Polar Precision Performance SW

edited June 2007 in Workshop
This is a plea- does anyone know of an idiots guide or demo that shows how to use the software effectively. The manual/help file is 100 odd pages and not user friendly. i dearly want to customise the graphs and analyse the data and to be honest i don't know where to start.. i'm good for the setting up of the S725X and downloading profiles exercises etc but the graphs? Help!

    Err....no. But if you do find anything can you let me know please.

    The best way I found was to just mess about with it until it does something near to what you want it to.
    I have it working fine on my computer, but if I ever have to upload it to abother computer (a hard drive died on me before) it takes me an age of fiddling about to get it to present things how I want.

    Have you tried emailing Polar UK - they are very helpful.

    If it's any help, here's a micro summary of the basics ( i.e. as far as I ever got )

    Select a day in the calander view
    - tab between exercise 1 .. 2 .. etc. ( if you have more than one that day )
    -click on the curve
    - View | View Active Properties ( to faff around with the displayed data scales etc. )

    The one which took me ages to find, was how to set units - e.g. altitude to meters not feet:
    -Options | Person Properties | Measurement Units

    These seem to get saved to C:\Program Files\Polar\Polar Precision Performance\{YOUR_NAME}\{YOUR_NAME}.ppd , but they not did use XML or obvious tagging within each data group :-(
