  • Memory available on the 310XT

    I can't find any way to see how much memory is left on the 310xt. I believe that when the memory fills up, it will just stop recording. But how do I know how much I have left? Can I do my 2 hour ride without deleting stuff? Anybody know how many data-points the thing can store when recording HR, Power, and Cadence?

    I know this is not exactly what you're looking for but this is the best information I have from the old MB forum:

    "The Forerunner 310XT stores the
    track along with the fitness information in the same way as our other
    watches. It can store approximately 20 hours of data (assuming 1
    trackpoint is being recorded every 4 seconds - Smart Recording)."

    Kind regards

    So my guess is that this equates to roughly 18,000 trackpoints (20*60*60/4). Compare that to 13,000 for the 305 and 16,000 for the 705.

      When the 310 gets close to filling up the memory, it will give you a warning that the memory is becoming too full. Are you asking if you can still do a 2 hour ride after seeing this warning?

      I would suggest you upload to your computer and then delete the old data. I tend to delete anything over a month. You can set Ant Agent to delete all information from the watch automatically after an upload, but that makes me nervous about losing data, so I prefer to control it myself. If the Ant Agent could tell the watch to delete anything older than a month, I would like that option, but it's all or nothing at this point.

        Maybe someone needs to confirm this, but my understanding is that the data is cleared off the device but downloaded to the computer if auto-delete is selected. At least that is what appears to happen on my Mac. I have an alias to the folder where the downloaded data appears which I use to upload info into SportTracks. (Have to do this as currently there is an issue with the ANT key being seen running WIndoze under Parallels). As far as I can tell, that data remains even after deletion from the device.

        I'd assume that the same would happen on a Windoze computer.

          Yes, of course, the data remains on the computer after deleting from the device via the Ant Agent.

          However, I don't like to trust auto-delete simply because I'm paranoid something will not get loaded to the computer in a glitch and then deleted from my device, leaving me with nada. Just paranoid, I guess.

          I also tend to upload to two computers and not auto-deleting leaves it on the watch for a transfer later.

            Yes, and I recall a few posters having issues transferring data only to find out that it was gone from their device because of the auto-delete setting.
