Comments: I am very satisfied with this treadmill. The J.B. Hunt Final Mile Service was smooth - the delivery guys dropped the treadmill exactly where I asked them too. Although at first glance it may look to be a complicated set-up, it was not. The instructions were easy to follow, and I was actually able to set-up the machine by myself. Once assembly was complete I was able to connect to a WiFi network and calibrate the incline within just a couple of minutes. I am having a lot of fun using the Google maps program to map out runs. The first run I mapped was a four and a half mile run between my place and my girlfriend's house - sure enough, I felt just like I was running through the neighborhood - everything was the same using street view. Also, I think it is a kick in the pants that when running a route on Google maps the treadmill automatically adjusts the incline setting in synch with the elevation relative to where you are at on the map. On the downside, I have found the touchscreen on the tablet to be a little, well, touchy. There are times I feel it isn't as easy to type characters on the touchscreen as it should be. Also, I was disappointed to learn iFit, the fitness program that tracks your workouts on the treadmill, is no longer compatible with Facebook. Essentially, you cannot currently post a treadmill workout from iFit to Facebook. Overall though this is an awesome treadmill, and I am very pleased with my purchase. I would definitely recommend this treadmill to others.
