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 :: Indoor Calibration For Running?

Jan 8, 2012

Tried to callibrate MA for indoor running;Did what the prompts said -- however, it says for the 1st 2-mins. run easy -- my MA DID NOT let me go for the total 2-mins...tried a couple of times and it usually cut me off at about 1-min?When I look at my workouts OF COURSE the paces are off because it didn't calibrate...I saw that I could "correct" the distance on the MA, but how can I go to my MA.com and enter in the laps column my actual splits..ie., 1-mile??

I actually Don't track calories but was wondering why this indoor workout said 0 calories burned? I DID wear my HR monitor...(Incidentally, I have a new NordicTrack treadmill AND the calories burned compared to my Garmin AND the MA (when I got calories from outdoor run) were ALL completely different..by a lot).I enetered the same data for all 3 re. weight, etc...

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 :: 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

Motorola Motoactv :: Stages And Time/distance Display?

Sep 19, 2012

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 :: 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): https://motoactv.com/workout/show?orkoutActivityId=4QaHxB2cQMeiehkKHkX0MQ%3D%3D&activity=4GARMIN (30 mi): http://connect.garmin.com/activity/167586976MOTOACTV (44mi): https://motoactv.com/workout/showworkoutActivityId=26QvMGqURk6rA1hMEb4w1w%3D%3D&activity=4GARMIN (40 mi): http://connect.garmin.com/activity/167587461MOTOACTV (48mi): https://motoactv.com/workout/showworkoutActivityId=QxSBZlK%2FTr6vP9JT%2BAaNRA%3D%3D&activity=4

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 :: 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 :: Motoactv Playing Unknown Songs

Aug 7, 2012

I've owned the MotoActv for two month, I got the mysterious "moisture issues" that everyone seems to be getting even though I've never used it in the rain. But the thing that is driving me nuts is the music. When I hit random shuffle of all my songs, I hear songs I don't want to hear... song that I do not own on my computer. Where are these songs coming from? Today I heard "Boot Scoot Boogie!" I abhore country music as does my wife. Doing a computer wide search shows no evidence that the song exists on my computer. Yet there it is playing in mile four. Other mystery songs have showed up too. The performance music playlist seems to be filled with songs I never heard of, yet evidently I perform well to them.
