Footpod / GPS connection during run

Good evening.

My question is regarding something that confuses me with footpod connection.

I use garmin footpod for outside runs and "Settings" are set to always use footpod instead of GPS. Before i start my activity i check in "Sensors" that footpod is connected. Then i initiate an activity and see a sign that footpod is connected. I run for 1-2 minutes and then see on top of my screen green sign "GPS".

Does it mean that my footpod keeps getting disconnected and then watch decides to activate GPS since it sees no footpod? If yes - how can i rectify this issue?

P.S. Have no such problem during treadmill runs/ Footpod works as expected without any disconnects.

Thank you for advice.

  • I dont see any disconection at all... I think your watch works perfect...   The watch connect the footpod, and uses it for obtain the speed run...  the watch also enables GPS for save your route...   When you syncs the watch and you see the route in Garmin Connect, the way runned, the trace of points you run are determined by GPS. But the speed and pace of your run are determined by footpod, as you specified.

    Its my opinion...   Excuse my poor english  :-S
