What GPS should I use? That is the question I’ve started to pose to myself.
Susan got me UA heart-rate detecting headphones at Christmas and with those you get a year of premium Map My Run access. With these headphones you need to open and start a workout with the UA Recorder App (which is really buggy) or Map My Run, I started playing with Map My Run, and like that I can load others routes, and look for routes in other cities when I’m travelling etc and I like the more accurate Heart Rate from the headphones vs. the integrated one, in my Forerunner and / or my Fitbit.
So starting in very late December I began running with 2 GPS, my Forerunner 225 GPS watch and my IPhone 6S with the Map My Run app. I live in an urban area and am used to having a little bit of GPS trouble at the start of my run, before I get out on the river path which has no buildings etc to block GPS. I started this experiment assuming that the GPS on my IPhone would be better, why assume this? My IPhone is about a year newer then my Forerunner and it’s larger, so I assumed more “antenna”. So which one is better?
