Gone and got a replacement for the crappy old GSC-10.
Just got hold of the Wahoo Fitness speed and cadence sensor.
Installed, scanned on garmin, ready to go!
Can't wait to try it out on the trainer.
I just downloaded a free app on my iPhone from the app store called MotionX-GPS. I got the light version which is free and there is another version which you pay about $3 for. The free one is unreal, but i may end up getting the paid version to support this great developer.
Anyhow below is the information that it gave me after a ride when i chose the option to email the ride (track) to me. To test it i just did a road ride around Homebush and didn't start it properly until i got to Silverwater.
The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Oh yeah... it's not as cool as the DH one, but here's the vid of the nutters who tape themselves into aerodynamic cocoons with 100 tooth big rings and cycle on the flat:
Look at the part 54 seconds in when the dude is cracked from his shell after giving it some. Any air in there, son?
Austria's Markus Stoeckl, 33, set a new world record at the weekend for series mountain bikes on a renovated high-speed La Parva run in the Chile's Alps when he hit a speed of 210.4 km/h (130.7 mph). He shattered an eight-year-old record by an incredible 23 km/h (14 mph).
Think this is vid of said ride... well... it looks very similar:
