The Motorola Defy is getting ready to drop for T-Mobile. Water resistant, shock resistant, etc.

Sorry to bring this up again.
But for those who are android users the app called "Mytracks" is AMAZING! Used it hiking and longboarding all summer. it clocks your speed, maps your trail, gives you elevation gain and loss etc. and graphs it out for you.

I don't know what My speed on the mountain is yet but on a longboarding this summer I averaged 26mph.. I'm sure other people have gone much faster but hey it was my first summer ever on a skateboard.

PS. 69/70 is absolutely nuts!

88 mph at which point the flux displacement occurred and I traveled back to November 5th 1955.

I don't think GPS is as accurate as a timing trap or radar gun. I believe the loss of altitude gives a faster than actual speed with most low end gps devices.

At $72.25 the Bushnell Velocity Speed Gun is a relatively cheap and accurate device.

Yes, alcohol WAS involved....
That means you are actually going about 15% faster if the slope angle is about 30 degrees. So it is more like 71 MPH. GPS normally estimates horizontal speed.

45mph on a longboard and probably about the same or a little less on snowboard. Never tracked my speed on snow, its just not as scary so i dont think about speed.

If you're not scaring the shit out of yourself everyday, you're doing it wrong
