Not one to fancy reading manuals more than a few times, I hadn't realized you could get Elevation Gain numbers real time until many moons later when I discovered it by accident — Garmin calls it Total Ascent — when we were attempting 4 loops of KM4's 5km route.

Discovering this earlier would have been a massive help when I was designing Sungai Liang's road and trail 21K and 30K training course for max elevation gain. I thought EG was only calculated after completion of activity). All's not lost and thankfully Garmin Fenix 3 lets you change Data Fields while logging an activity.

Pictured here my last heat, weight and endurance training covering a 40K distance with an elevation gain of 1,216m. The route: Agro-McFarm-Shahbandar return x 2 loops at 10K each way.

  • pommkiWhere is that found? Do you have to download
  • janshim@pommki It's in the default Data Field options. No download necessary. Non Fenix 3 may have a different menu I'd imagine.
  • pommkiI have Fenix 3 mate
  • pommkiI can only see three fields?
  • pommkiFound it cheers
