Well....went for a [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwv5J4RlwSQ"]nice ride[/ame]( Youtube didn't like my music :)) yesterday with my new Tachyon XC video camera and soon discovered that my Garmin did not like being mounted on the same handle bar with the camera ! The Garmin was lost as an Easter Egg, would go into auto pause as if I slowed to a stop, wouldn't stay connected to the satellites and made a 36.55 mile a 20 mile ride. I never even considered the electronic interference the camera might cause being so close to the Garmin. I knew it could happen just did't think about when I put it on the bars....oh well.
Somewhat disappointed in the cameras performance. Part of the problem is that I bought a 16GB SDHC card that was a class 4 and not 6 or better, just couldn't stomach the cost of an ultra fast card. I may have to bite the bullet on this tho cuz I'm gonna use it in a [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sy6-90iToHc"]race car[/ame] this summer as well.

Nope ! I got a msg that said Io could upload 1.2 GB file, this was only 411 MB. On a positive note the Garmin functioned flawlessly without the camera today !
Todays Ride. I'm no Lance Armstrong or even a racer and it's still early in the year so I am pleased with the ride today all be it a very flat ride :D
