  2. jeez, you have a moto-actv! how’s that working for you? and does it have some kind of “back home” function that will point you back to the place you started?


    • hi there, I love it!!!!!! love it so much I already have two more as they’ve discontinued them. gets signal much faster than all the other ones, has playlists, tells me my splits by the earpiece, big numbers, all fabulous!


  3. yeah, i heard it was discontinued. pitty. now they’re going for a full-on smartwatch it seems. still, the one thing i’m looking for and what most watches appear to be missing is a way to get back to my house/car/hotel/starting point. my garmin 305 shows a trace and so i can trace back to the starting point. some have an arrow that points in the direction of the starting point, which is nice too, but not as nice as the trace. i was wondering what the motoactv had in this area 🙂


    • you know… I had tried that on the 405 and never really figured it out (or it didn’t work) once on a trail ultra I got lost in the woods, and luckily I have never needed that help on the moto, might try it soon and see if I can find it!
