I recently started using an Edge 500 with HRM and cadence, and have both Mac and PCs at home. I like the web aps, since I can also play with the data at work or send links to it, but which of these software packages do you prefer, and why? Are there some others I should look at? I probably won't use it to plan workouts, but I do like to geek out with the data, later. I would like to be able compare repeat runs on the same course, or individual climbs.

Yeah, I've been playing around with the TP free version, but I'm not using a power meter, yet, and I'm not going to pay for the subscription, in any case.

Ascent is the best $30 I think I have ever spent on anything. It is a great application - but it is for keeping tabs on stuff post ride, not pre ride. It can do what you say you want to do - keep track of runs and climbs - just make sure you log the stuff right. No question there. One thing people with garmin rarely do, and it's an incredible feature, have the computer log a lap every-time you pass a certain point. Let's say you're doing a 30 lap crit. Put this feature on and when you pass the start, hit lap, and then every time you pass the same point the computer will lap automatically. Now you have 30 laps and you can see whatever you want - average power, HR, speed - whatever. Do hill climb repeats. Hit lap at the bottom, finish the effort, hit lap again. now you have one for when you start and when you finish - all done automatically.

Garmin and ascent rock. I have three years of data and I love it.
