    I'll have to try and work it out - but I think it happened on the latest but 1 version, and the version before that.

    I haven't crashed on the very latest version yet - but I haven't ridden more than 160miles in one hit yet on that...

    I do agree with all the posts above, but just for the record, when my 800 crashes on 200mile+ rides (and becomes unusable until I have faffed around on a PC with it for hours - either losing all or some of the data) I haven't been using the navigation features (I practically never use them), just following a line...

    When the 1000 freezes does it also become unusable and try to lose/corrupt the existing ride data? (Which is what the 800 seems to do beyond a certain point)

    A freeze resolvable by restarting the unit I can sort of grudgingly live with, but having the unit totally brick itself 100 miles from home and/or, upon getting home, finding it's also 'lost' the longest rides you may ever do is a bit of a cock punch.

    Illness or accident?

    I've finally had an operation to remove a scarred nerve from my left foot (Morton's Neuroma) - which has been driving me progressively nuts for the last 5 years.

    how's the recovery?

    I'll find out a lot more on Tuesday when the stitches come out. I'm not allowed to remove the dressing and splint before then - the only thing I can see is that the end of my big toe (which is nowhere near the incision/problem) is still bright purple. The shoe stops me putting any weight on the front of my foot, so it's difficult to tell how it's getting on without deliberately hurting myself without it..

    Fortunately I reckon carbon Sidis will be the ultimate recovery shoe (they've been the only pain relief I've had for the last 5 years). Albeit, somewhat ironically, they probably also made the most significant contribution to causing the problem in the first place..

    I'm currently wearing a medical-issue rubber geisha girl shoe, so no Star Hill action for me this time sadly. Stitches out next week - so hopefully I'm in with a shout for the next ride.*

    I personally would like to see the Midweek Evening Ride forum deleted, and the TNRC and WNKR threads put back into the Rides thread

    as if to illustrate your point (albeit in reverse), I had completely forgotten that the Rides Forum even existed - but I have to admit I was hoping it would take Al his usual 2 months to find your post and angrily agree with it, thereby illustrating it even more clearly!
