    I went out for a quick spin this morning and when I uploaded my ride I notice I had a maximum speed of 3215.9 mph. Pretty impressive eh? Even Cavendish would struggle to keep up with me.

    So assuming for a second that I'm not capable of travelling at Mach 4, does anyone know if it is possible to eliminate these points of a Garmin file? I have the Garmin Edge 705. Most of the time I love it, but every now and again, I get an off the scale point like this one for either speed or heartbeat.

    Don't know about the file types the Edge produces, but I've had (very occasionally) a similar issue with my Legend and if I CBA to fix it on the file ( can't think why I would) I reckon I could do it in Mapsource by deleting a line or two of trackpoints in the GPX file, as in my case the track wandered slowly away from reality and then jumped at warp speed back to where I thought I was. Don't know if you can do that in Training Center or whatever they call it for the Edge models, but otherwise maybe use GPSBabel to convert to TCX to GPX, Use a text editor like Wordpad to f*ck-up edit the XML file then change it back to TCX ?
