Altimetric Gradient


This data field calculates the gradient of the climb by using the internal barometer/altimeter instead of using the GPS signal.</p><p>Use this data field if you have inconsistent data from the gradient field provided on the Garmin 820 when climbing a shady mountain or you are in the woods.


** 1.0.2</p><p>Changed smoothing to 10 meters, otherwise short climbs would be lagged</p><p></p><p>** First release</p><p>Gradient data is smoothed over a maximum of 40 meters distance (to avoid strange spikes). I find this smoothing quite good for me, but if you feel there is too much (or too little) smoothing, please let me know via mail :)

on Edge 820, the reading of the gradient through this app makes much more sense than through the GPS-based data provided by the device. I've been using this app for a whole year and it works really well to me. Before installing the app, I would start reading the actual gradient after 200 mts. of a climb, as it would adjust very slowly. Now, I can appreciate the gradient almost in real time, let's say 3 seconds from beginning a climb or a descent.

I downloaded it and tried it on a hilly mtb ride. It works very well even on relatively short ups and downs. I have no other device to check it against but seat-of-the-pants says it's reasonably accurate. What's mystifying is that Garmin didn't do this in the first place and hasn't done it after all the complaints about their existing gradient calculation.

Det finns tyvärr ingen statistik tillgänglig ännu.
