I’m getting a bit of push back about the split of the app which surprises me, but is nevertheless a problem.
I know it’s not seamless, but after all, it’s only a single user interaction after the clock counts down and a brief delay while the GPS acquires a signal.
Once the race has started,
the app displays a prompt.
The user then has to
confirm the switch, on a
touch screen, by tapping
the Confirm message of a
5-button watch, by pressing
the SELECT button.
Then there’s a brief delay
while the watch acquires a
As soon as the signal is acquired, it automatically displays the dashboard screen
Unfortunately the Garmin system prevents me from bypassing the confirmation prompt (security gone mad?) and there’s just not enough memory on the watch to combine the starting and racing components in a single app. So what am I do do?
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
