Changes made from version 3.30 to 3.40: (released 07/09/2004)

  1. Improvements to prevent some bad GPS locations from going into track log. This should smooth out the speed/pace graphs.

  6. Fixed problem where deleting the very first run would not delete the associated track, resulting in problems uploading to Logbook.
  7. Improved satellite tracking while first getting a fix.
