Hi there,

I think the new Fenix is just peachy, but it does have a few glitches with elevation gain & ascent/descent. First off, it gives some very strange elevation gain values with uploads to Garmin Connect. For example, I uploaded this track as both a GPX file and a FIT file: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/224922897 and http://connect.garmin.com/activity/224922379

As you can see, the uncorrected elevation gain for the FIT file is nearly double that of the GPX file, for the exact same track.

Also, during an outing, the ASCENT and DESCENT data values are bogus, often reading hundreds or even thousands of feet before I've even begun moving.

Thanks; I sure like this unit otherwise!

I think this was fixed on the new firmware (2.6.0) update that came out yesterday.
