Re: GPX onto iOS - apologies for my stupidity.

it's a 4S I've got. Running iOs 9.3.5. I think that might be your problem right there. Apple iDevices have only recently (latest iOS I think) gained the Files app, which lets you store arbitrary files - before that, handling files was between a total pain and impossible (normal Apple "walled g...

Re: Climbing

I used to have a Ciclosport HAC4 which, given total weight of bike+rider+load, would tell you whatever wattage you were developing.
