GPS course tracking with the Garmin Foreunner 205

MotionBased Tracking SiteLast week I picked up a Garmin Foreunner 205 wristwatch GPS receiver to use while I kiteboard. The forerunner works with an affiliated website called MotionBased, which I learned about from John Gomes (see posts #2 and #3 kiteboarding rescue August 18 2006).

MotionBased allows the user to upload data collected in the unit and post it to the web - on a map, that can be stored and shared. Here is an example - kiteboarding yesterday in the late afternoon at 3rd Avenue in San Mateo, California. Pretty useful, and very cool. Separately, ill be logging this data in combination with wind, tide and current conditions and storing and sharing those logs on scribd .
