|This is what most of my elevation data looked like...28,000 feet...no change. |
Note: This is for a run in Stockton, CA with an average elevation of 26 feet!!!
Since HS and I were on a little vacation up in Tahoe, I didn't want to record my runs with incorrect elevation data. I wanted accurate info!
|The Gingerbread cabin. So cute!|
So, one morning as we sat and drank our coffee in the Gingerbread cabin, I found a post that said all I would need to do is wash the watch in warm soapy water and use a tooth brush to clean the barometer vents. Worth a shot because I definitely didn't want to part with my watch while I waited for a replacement from Garmin.
|Warm water, but not too hot.|
|Where did I get a Michael David toothbrush? LOL|
I went back inside the cabin, warmed up the water (just a bit warmer this time) a let the watch sit for about 10 minutes. I took care to work the bristles of the toothbrush back and forth in the barometer holes.
|There are two holes, one small one on the side of the watch and another one|
by the screw.
This time, when I turned the watch on, I had a reading indicative of Tahoe! Next I went on a 10 mile run to see if I was getting an accurate reading.
|No more flat line!|
|Sign reads 6,245|
(Not sure if this is the center of town elevation or the elevation at the sign)
|Garmin reads 6,270|
