The two responses I got were to turn it on as soon as I hit the mat. If I turn it on then, it won't get the satellites in time enough and won't start timing right away! I guess I need to be clearer with my question. Do you press the on button 1 minute before the start, 5 minutes or 10 minutes to give it enough time to make sure it has the satellites before the race even starts?
I am a newbie when it comes to running a race with the Forerunner 305! Although my race is not until April 26th, I am thinking about it lots, lately. I have a question for those of you who are experienced in this area!
How soon before the gun goes off at the start line, do you turn your Forerunner on to catch the satellites so it's ready to start once you step on the mat?
