We already have the Garmin 305 thread that I started :)

I want to be a member though. I'm not a member of any club, so this will make me feel wanted :)

I'm in! Wooohooo! I wondered how long it was before someone started a club :lol:

So what software has everyone tried, and what to people find best?

I tend to use the standard training centre, but it doesn't seem to remember all my runs :( I've tried motionbased, but I just don't like it... anyone tried that sporttracks one or whatever it's called?

I wanted to like the Garmin Training Centre but found Sporttracks more... Dunno, just more.

Motionbased is due to become Garmin Connect which doesn't yet support the 305 and I have failed to register with motionbased. Didn't try to hard to be honest.

I use the training centre and sporttracks. I like sporttracks for looking a various splits, but the Garmin software is better for monitoring blocks of running by week etc.

And yes please, i'll have some of that. Got mine today, not used it yet, taking it out for a first date tomorrow afternoon. Which is the best software where I can upload my runs and leave them there not having to delete them at all - even when the watch is full ?

To just keep data the software that comes with it is sufficient.

Any references to dates need to be posted in the date thread otherwise we will have to question your sanity :d

The Garmin software won't give you splits for quarter miles, half miles, 2 miles, 5ks, 10ks etc. The most it will give you is splits based on the distances you set on laps. This is a major negative for the Garmin software. I also don't like graphs it gives you as much as sportstrack. But splits are important for training. So, I would suggest using multiple software platforms.

I want to be in the club too. But only if I can be treasurer and abscond to Barbados with the funds.

Sporttracks for me, too. But hardly a fair comparison, since I never bothered to install Garmin. But it is a very pretty looking program. Alright, not the most hardcore of reasons for choosing it...
I like the fact that as its freeware people write nifty little plug-ins that do neat things. Does the Garmin software have this facility? (In fact, why don't I just stop being idle and just install the damn thing and find out for myself...)
I like the elevation correction plug-in, and the weather data plug-in. And the pole-dancing club locator plug-in. Ok, I made that one up.
