FWIW I thought the My Sports page sucked compared to everything else out there. I especially hated that I couldn't delete anything. However, I had zero issues connecting it to RunKeeper. My biggest gripe is the lack of an ability to sync it to my iPhone. I hate having to plug it into my laptop to get my data sync'd up. Hopefully they'll get this fixed. Their My Sports site is basically back-ended by the MapMy guys so maybe we'll see some of their functionality soon. That said, I'm one week and 4 runs into using mine and its been great to leave the phone at home. Battery life for me (even with an HR monitor) is better when outdoors in the clear than when running with buildings near me.

Hi Kevin, Strava is not one of the apps currently supported. TomTom have told us that it is trying to add more app support

The ‘One Touch control’ is not really an accurate description.

"The new graphical training partner is all about pushing you to work harder
in your running sessions, whether it’s competing against your last run
or setting a precise goal for a running session. When you race against
yourself, the training partner will display the current run and previous
run on the screen."... Really ? REALLY ? Because it doesnt work - never has - you can only run against the FIVE preset distances and their associated times - you can NOT run against a previous run.

Question of details. The lack of USB charging seems a silly mistake by TomTom in a quite brilliant product. Crazy detail.

Can your activities be posted on facebook from this watch?

In fact in the current firmware version (1.5.4) I was able to race any of my recent sessions (Run -> Training -> Race -> Recent). As mentioned in the review the watch displays distance behind / ahead and gives a signal when surpassing the previous run time.

In response to the question about posting activities on facebook the answer is yes. When viewing your activities via TomTom MySports, a webbased software, you can make use of a link called mapmyfitness. It offers you the possibility to post your activities on various social media.

There is one concern I have about my TomTom runner. For some reason it seems to have difficulty with uploading my activities to TomTom MySports. Thought this was just an update issue but I'm afraid its not. Anyone with this experience and a solution?

Just got this device. Maybe you can help in getting answers to some questions?
1) What should be changed in settings in order to display lap (km) times during a run?
2) How to change main display settings if I want to see something else, not the pace?
3) the same issue as JC - how to solve problem with uploading activities to Mysports? Doesn't happen.
4) any idea when there could be app for iPhone (possibility to upload activities via phone) if any?

I've had this watch for a while now and love it. I have to say though, charging it is a pain. I do it at work, but if I forget and it is running low at the weekend (and I have a long run to do) it really is annoying.

Has anyone tried charging it using a USB port that is not connected to a computer (e.g. a car USB port) - does that work?

I sync it directly to my MapMyRun account, and it works brilliantly.
