View Full Version : Can the Edge 800 auto lap?

02-06-2011, 07:23 AM

I am running basecamp 3.1.3 on Mac OSX 10.6.6

I've created a course using basecamp and transferred it to my Edge 800.

I would like the edge 800 to automatically time how long it takes me to complete certain sections of the course (climbs usually).

I know I can manually press the lap button at the foot of a climb and then again at the top of a climb to capture data about that section of the course but often I forget due to the effort required at these points of the course.

I was wondering, since I planned these routes using basecamp, is there a way to insert markers on the course that will cause the Edge 800 to automatically capture my performance between these 2 markers?

Thanks for your help.

The 800 should be able to auto-lap based on a course created from a previous activity that had laps created by the Lap button.
