Motorola Motoactv :: Cycling Route Distance VERY Innacurate?

Apr 13, 2012

Very innacurate readings. See below comparing MOTOACTV with my GARMIN 705and I know the garmin distance to be correct since I know the roads pretty well, and I created the routes using google mapsI expect some type of difference between GPS devices, for example my iphone using wahoo does not always agree witht he garmin, but the difference is less than 1%... with the MOTOACTV the difference is about 10%MOTOACTV (34 mi): (30 mi): (44mi): (40 mi): (48mi):

Motorola Motoactv :: Input A Tire Size For Cycling If GPS Should Track Speed And Distance?

Apr 14, 2012

Why does one need to input a tire size for cycling if the GPS should track speed and distance? I owned a Garmin 205 and did not have a sensor. I only used the GPS and was able to track speed and distance very accurately. I tested the MOTOACTV in a car for 3.5 miles. For some reason the GPS was not tracking any information except the track, which was correct. Instead of 3.5 miles, it showed 0.51 miles. Will this also happen on the bike?

Motorola Motoactv :: Make Route Public Or Edit Route Bugs?

Apr 3, 2012

I would like to report a bug with regards to saving/making a route public.I go into Planning, then Routing, and I have several routes saved from previous workouts. As per below, I click on the "Public Route" check box, and then Save. I just get booted to a generic screen/map with the "Create New Route" button.Regardless of whether I click on save or not, if I reselect the route on the left, then it the "Public Route" check box is cleared again.In addition on the screenshot below, why does it say "2525 Hemlock St, Vancouver, BC V6H, Canada | 0.06 km". This route was clearly 25k. Strange/weird thing also is if i click on "Edit Route", (Hey anthing's worth a try....) and then Save, it actually turns my route (ie destroys my route) into .06 km. This is exactly what happened to the bottom route on the left list; it used to be 25k until I 'saved' it. Oh well, at least I can go into my recent workouts and resave the route and try again!

Motorola Motoactv :: Cycling Max Battery Life

Sep 3, 2012

This weekend I did a long cycling tour with the MotoACTV and found out where the max battery life is for me. Without running any music, BT notifications off, and minimal screen usage, I got 8.5 hours of life (7 hours riding time) over 110 miles. There was just enough power to sync when I got home, and by the time I was in the shower, it was close to 0% an in the charger.I truly thought I was going to lose the last couple hours, but the device proved me wrong. Job well done. When I first did this with older software, I ran out of power at 5 hours. Software tweaks work!

Motorola Motoactv :: Have A Bike Sensor For Cycling?

May 6, 2012

I've just tried to do a cycling fitness test in a gym on a standard gym bike bike (lifecycle fitness) but it wouldn't let me start with just a HRM , it gave me a message saying I had to have a Bike Sensor. So is there no way to do a fitness test on a bike without having to spend more money? I do have a road bike, but I'd like the option to do this in a gym without shelling out more.i can see theres "stationary bike" profile, but this doesn't have the option for a fitness test.(BTW - I also tried a quick start indoors cycling workout and got the same message (connect a bike sensor to start an indoor ride)

Motorola Motoactv :: Distance Is Not Calculating All Way

Feb 27, 2012

If you see the screenshot, you will notice that the end marker is not where I finished (green flag).Does this mean it doesn't pick up the last bit of my route? Does this mean it doesn't time it correctly? Does this mean that the map is off but the time and distance are correct?

Motorola Motoactv :: Use It Indoor Without Distance?

Aug 27, 2012

I am trying to understand how I can do an indoor activity without getting speed and distance data in the results.I have used the Motoactv primarily for outdoor training for hiking, walking, mountain biking, and inline skating. Additionally, I am using for various indoor activities including plyometrics, weightlifting, indoor cycling, and indoor inline speed skating.I have been able to understand the use of GPS for speed and distance calculations (albeit with a number of accuracy impacting calculation concerns as noted in other posts in this forum). What I do not understand is the speed and distance calculations for the indoor activities. Nor do I have any idea on how the accelerometer (or pedometer) capabilities are used in speed and distance in conjunction with GPS for outdoor activities.

Specifically, for indoor activities other than those which are directly correlated to running, walking, cycling, or an elliptical, how are the speed and distance calculated? For example, when I did an hour of weightlifting using that category, the workout results showed that I had travelled over a mile with various speeds. It seems sensible to me that only a few of the indoor workout categories make sense for speed and distance data. I would not expect yoga or weights to track distance. Additionally, in a pretty intense indoor speed skating practice yesterday, I used the Motoactv for the first time to track my HR data. It produced some speed & distance data for the times in which I was skating, but the accuracy was in no way close. I expected no speed & distance data & I would not expect accurate data for inline speed skating (although that would be awesome). how the various indoor activities use the pedometer for speed calculation? Failing that, does anyone know how to stop an indoor activity from tracking speed & distance? Or finally, do any of the indoor activities NOT generate speed & distance?

The Motoactv device has a lot of functionality over & above competitive GPS watches in it being able to intelligently use the GPS or the pedometer for distance calculation for the specific activity. Hopefully, it also has the software logic to NOT calculate speed & distance for certain activities. Recent Garmin devices allowed you to "Use Indoor" if it could not find a GPS signal which turned off all speed/distance calcs. To prevent inaccurate non-sensical data on the Moto, we need to be able to specify activities without speed/distance or be able to turn off GPS & pedometer for specific activities.

Motorola Motoactv :: Cycling Workout - Lap / Interval Speed Does Not Correlate

May 14, 2012

I have noticed that the average speed reported per lap/interval does not correlate with the graph. For example, I did an interval workout on my bike recently. As you can see from the image below, my average speed for interval 5 was 32.99 km/hr. I know this to be correct, because I was trying to keep my fast intervals at +30 km/hr, and could see this on my watch during the workout. However, as you can see, the graph seems to be displaying an average speed of around 13 km/hr, and shows that my speed never went about 20 km/hr.

This problem is happening for me on all of my cycling workouts, whether or not I have a scheduled interval routine or just autolap for 1km. For some of the intervals (maybe 5-10 %), the graph seems to be consistent with the average speed for the interval, but for the majority of intervals it is all messed up. I'm using the 8GB version with the latest software update. My .csv for the workout is also attached.

Motorola Motoactv :: Is A Speed Sensor Used For Distance

May 8, 2012

Typical cycling computers use the sensors to measure both distance and speed. When an ANT+ speed sensor is used with the MotoACTV, does it get used for distance as well, or just speed? I commute in downtown Chicago and would welcome the more accurate distance measurement in addition to the GPS route tracking.

Motorola Motoactv :: Correcting Distance After Workout?

Jan 23, 2012

I have scoured the forums looking for an answer to this question but have not been able to locate one. I have found now, 8 runs in that the distance the MOTOACTV is showing is worsening rather than becoming more accurate. I have seen posts from other stating that they corrected the distance after their workout but I did not see details on how to do e also read to not recalibrate. That the MOTOACTV will become more accurate with time but my experience is that it is worsening. Should I recalilbrate or just manually adjust the distance once I know how to do

1) what "stages" are and how they're used? There is nothing in the manual about them.

2) Is there no way to have the live data screen display the total time and distance since the beginning of the workout? It appears that you can only choose lap, stage, or zone time.

Motorola Motoactv :: Biking - Reported Distance Is Wrong?

Jul 8, 2012

I've had issues with the distance being way off while hiking/jogging on trails. While annoying, I decided I could live with it as I really liked the MotoActv as a bike computer.Today, it let me down on the bike. It under reported the distance by almost 3 miles. Looking through the CVS file, I am not sure why this occured. It doesn't look like the GPS dropped out during the ride. The battery in my speed/candance sensor died 21 minutes into my 70 minute ride but I wouldn't expect this to matter for the distance. I also used my Garmin 910XT and it correctly reported the distance. It's frustrating as it has been very accurate on the bike. It had been the one reason I have kept it and not returned it.

Motorola Motoactv :: Can Track Club Distance Averages

May 1, 2012

Will the MOTOACTV Golf Edition track shot averages? It appears to only show the shot distance if I am marking shot locations, and then I don't see the information anywhere after (including on the online portal, where it isn't listed on the map with the other information like club selection, which seems odd). I would expect the device to track and store shot distances, and also calculate averages.

Motorola Motoactv :: Pace/distance Measurement When GPS Signal Lost

Mar 31, 2012

On a run today I went down a spiral ramp under a bridge and lost my gps signal several times. I was wearing a footpod. I noticed my pace measurement slowed down from a 6 min mile to about 18 min/mi.

1st question...since I had a paired footpod shouldn't it have taken over to make the pace measurement more accurate in situations exactly like this?

2nd question... assuming the footpod was taking over, how accurate is it since there seems to be no way to calibrate the actual footpod. Is the data from the footpod constantly being taken into account and then integrated back into my final workout stats?

Motorola Motoactv :: Golf Shot Distance, Without Pressing Start

Jun 29, 2012

I know that when you press "start" to mark your next shot the distance of the last shot flashes on the screeen.

Is there a way for me to see the distance from the last shot without locking in the position with the "start" button? This is a feature I would use all of the time with my other GPS unit to know how far away I was so I would know approximatly where to start looking for my ball if it wasn't sitting out in the open. Also very useful for letting your playing partners know how far their drives went.

Motorola Motoactv :: Show Opponent Data In Distance And Time Target?

May 28, 2012

When I set a target of type "distance & time" (e.g 5 km in 25 minutes), I can not see my progress against my virtual opponent, that is, I can not see how far or how fast I am doing against that target. Just appears my data, and none from the opponent. I already have the opponent screen enabled. When I compete against a previously saved workout, it works fine.

can I see my progress against the opponent when I set a "distance & time" target, or it only works when I compete against previously saved workouts?

Motorola Motoactv :: Device Stoped Counting Calories/Distance During Workout

Mar 21, 2012

I had a great workout this morning, but when I was done, the calorie count was at 111. I worked out for 50 minutes and was expecting this to be at least 600.

When I uploaded the data, the calorie count stopped at about 10 minutes into the workout and the distance also stopped incrementing. I had heart rate information, but it was much lower than what I expected (I was working out much harder than the heart rate information shows.).

The image shows the results of the data. what could have caused this malfunction of the device?

Motorola Motoactv :: Route Information Is Not Available?

May 26, 2012

Ever since I upgraded the software on my MotoActv I am no longer able to view route information for new workouts on my phone. Every time I try to view the routes, I get the message "Route information is not available for this workout." I know that the route information is syncing properly to, because I can view it there. I just can't view it on my phone. The one workout that I completed prior to the software upgrade shows route information just fine on my phone.I have a MotoActv 8GB and it is currently running MA 1.6.13 N8. Strangely enough, the website lists the latest software as being MA 1.6.6 N8, so how did I get something newer and could this be part of the problem?

I did a Bike "workout" 6 weeks ago and after syncing, it had the route information on the MotoActv App. However, my latest two workouts show "Route Information Is Not Available for this Workout". I'm pretty sure I can see the routes on the website, but it's not loading any of my workouts at the moment. It would also be awesome if you could sync the golf "workouts" and show them on the MotoActv App as well; I imagine that has been in the works though.
