THANK YOU! i knew there had to be some sorta logical reason.. it does kinda make sense.. it did ask me if i knew the correct elevation and pressure and if i wanted to use the current gps altitude ..

another thing i found weird..

i turned it on cuz i wanted to see how much elevation i did when going up and down some stairs and just to test 'er out..

i recorded the Total Ascents when i reached the top, as follows:

36 m
69 m
102 m
124 m
156 m
190 m

it was pretty consistent but i shut it off just to see what happened and sure enuf, the total ascent was less (in between 102 and 124)..

so, i was wondering.. do people keep their gps's on at all times?
