Woke up this morning at 4:30 to run, but I had a test and I wasn't ready so I bailed on the early run and hit the books at 5am... Once the test was done, I jetted home, threw on the running attire and hit the road.

I have a question for those with Garmins (particularly the 405) - is yours extremely accurate? I mean, I got it to acquire satellites from my building which was surprising. Then I stepped out on the street, checked to see if it still had signal (it did) and I pressed start and off I went. When I got back I noticed the distance between what I mapped and the watch was a difference of .14km (140m) - not like that is a huge deal, but I when you look at the GPS data it says I started down the street rather than in front of my building (and it says I stopped right in front of my building - even though I started at the same spot). What's up with that?

I guess there could be a discrepancy between the mapped run and the GPS, but I don't think that was the case here since it didn't even look like I started where I actually did!

Have a good day everyone.

    GPS will be off a little and it has to do with the law, Goggle it and you will see why. I have an older one and it is not out that much normally. It does sometimes have funky start and stop points. Nice run by the way. Do you find bezel problems with the 405? They are known for that.

    I'm torn between congratulating you on the test or on the run. I'll go for the run! :)
