Re: Garmin Edge 20/25 wrist strap?

:lol: :lol: :lol: If I could fit it on a wrist that was at rightangles to my arm, I would have done. Imagine a wristwatch. Put it on either wrist. It's either 180degs out .......... so you put it on the other way up, or it's the right way. Swap over to the other wrist ............ same issue. This t...

Shurely shome mishtake as there will have been a Tory, all of whom are monsters, loony and prone to rave. No really! They are. They do.

Re: Garmin Edge 20/25 wrist strap?

Given it some thought. Do I want to look (conveniently) at the data when walking? I won't be following a course or trying to beat my "virtual partner" when walking the dog! Do I want to look (conveniently) at stats whilst walking? Do I want this thing on my wrist at all anyway? No answers ...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I had to hand over my RN identity card the day I left. The Wren - we had Wrens in those days - she gave me an exit pass in return, and I was allowed out HMS Drake main gate .................... never to be allowed back in.

Sad?
No, not really, even though I'd had an ID card for 27years.

Re: Smartphone to use with google maps

Thanks. Always liked the idea of the bigger screen but had imagined that touch screen would be a problem with gloves. Or in rain. Works in rain, in the dark, and whenever or wherever you want it. I have a lanyard on mine, and been out walking and trudging with it, and been abroad with it to navigat...

Re: Garmin Edge 20/25 wrist strap?

Thanks.

There is a clippy thingy that is in the set, that obviously has something to do with another device.
No use to me at all.

I think the whole thing is going back coz it's daft.
Great pity coz it's good otherwise.

Re: How's your weather?

Drove from Cornwall to Hampshire yesterday. As we left it was hideously wet and miserable but drove out of that by mid Devon. Sitting by the coast at Charmouth was lovely. Today in Southampton yesterday's Cornish weather has caught up. Just my luck. Hoping for a better outlook tomorrow cos this pro...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I voted twice. One for me, and proxy vote for Mrs Mick F ............. who is abroad at the moment. I was sad that there wasn't a Monster Raving Looney candidate to vote for. Wouldn't it be great if all the MPs were MRL? ........... Maybe it wouldn't be so much different from the last few years. :lo...

Re: Garmin Edge 20/25 wrist strap?

Dunno what the little bag of screwdrivers are for, but it's got nothing ........ as far as I can see ........... anything to do with the design of the strap. The screwdrivers are so you can swap the straps over. Clip end top or bottom. Still doesn't sort the 90degree issue though. Pity, coz it's go...

Re: Garmin Edge 20/25 wrist strap?

Arrived today. First, the good news. In the box kit, it had everything you could ever need with an Edge 20/25 Two sets of mounts complete with clips and rubber bands of small and large, plus the wrist strap which is brilliant and secure. Now the bad news. The wrist strap fits my Edge20 90degs wrong....

Have a look at the Burrows site. They do some good deals on factory refurbished units. My Montana came from them as a refurbished one, and I saved a packet. https://www.burrowsgps.co.uk Is the montana touchscreen mick? Yes. You can work it with thick gloves too. Massive screen.
