Over the last 12 months since the release of version 3.3 we have been focusing on adding functionality to enable users to perform more insightful analytics.

  • Yes hats off to you Mark, great selfless work. Appreciated
  • I'll find out soon, but does it still identify the Garmin Edge 820 as a Garmin2530 (last development release does this). Not drastically important, only cosmetically.

    I did wonder what the 2530 was... will download tonight and update everything.
  • Opened bug #2195 - as I see it's not rolled in (looks like a one-liner to add to FitRideFile.cpp - analogous to #1919/#1922)

    edit: and I've made commit #2196 to fix it :mrgreen: (pending merge by a more competent person than me lol)

    It can in its Training function.
    However, it takes a fair amount of tweaking to get right ... if you want the simplicity of setup as in Trainer Road .. user beware... dont moan about it.
    How do you do it..? check out YouTube etc etc ... when things are based on OpenSource you are basically having to rely on your own initiative.

    Golden Cheetah is a fully featured freeware analysis tool .. that I have been using since 2011 and I am barely scratching the surface with what it can do.
