I have lost / broken my data transfer cable / strap. Where can I get another one?

Why do the altitude readings seem to be incorrect?

This product does not have an attitude-barometer component. Consequently, the altitude reading is generated using the GPS technology.

This generates a very precise location in terms of longitude and latitude, but does not generate a very accurate altitude reading.
