Once activated – time to first fix was about 2 minutes – the GPS and altimeter kick in to record the altitude and position, time and temperature are also logged.

Display pop-ups can be configured to alert you when something significant happens such as bettering your previous maximum speed or gaining/losing another 500m in altitude. There is enough on-board storage to record about 40 hours of data and each full charge from the micro USB port is good for around 7 hours of use.
