Need some help
Need a little help from those that know GPS pretty well. I'm looking at purchasing this watch as a training tool and also a handy GPS unit to measure trail mileage for some of the CVA events. Will this unit factor elevation changes for accurate distance readings? I've heard some GPS give you a "flat land" mileage and then you have to enter the data into an elevation program to get the actual distance. Am I wrong? It this little unit worth $70?
