I just received a Pathfinder PAW-1500 and love it. All of the bells and whistles are fun to play with, but does anybody actually rely on the altimeter? I live in a flat desert location and adjusted it to what the local altitude is a couple of days ago. Since then, the altitude displayed has climbed about 250 feet, even though the watch hasn't gone up or down more than 30 feet at the most.
I'm wondering why include an altimeter if it isn't the least bit accurate? Or, am I missing something that I need to adjust to make it work correctly?
