Just a little more after I lost the last part of a ride yesterday on my Garmin 520, which seems to be misbehaving lately. For the second time, most of my ride was recorded, but possibly as the battery life began to drop, or through some other cause, the last section of my ride afterContinue reading “Recovering partial Garmin recordings”
