I bought a Holux 260 Pro last year but it fell off the bike on very first day, due to faulty clamp. Sending it to the company for replacement is very costly(>50% of the device cost) so it's been lying around for over a year. Except for the broken screen, the device is fully functional. I can't use it normally as the screen is totally damaged. Anybody having some good ideas to put it to a good use?
I'd figure out the key combinations to start and stop recording, and enable .gpx track recording.
You could then plug it into a computer and extract the .gpx files, and then use tools to play with them:
http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/ will let you upload the file and view it on a map
http://gpxdataanalyzer.com/ is a site I wrote that will analyze the file and return some analysis on it if you pick an activity (Flying, Driving, Hiking, etc.) I should probably add bicycling.
Any number of tools (including the Garmin software that comes with their GPS units) that will allow you to visualize the data 'off device'.
