I agree it doesn't matter. I usually start my Garmin once I leave the front door and I know my run club starts the mileage once we exit the building. So, that's what I am used to. I guess do what you are used to doing!

I press it when i've locked the front door before heading down the stairs; and stop it when i get back to the door

I press the start button on my timer as soon as I start moving out the door. Moving is moving. If I don't want those few seconds from my front door to the sidewalk to slow my time down, I make sure I hurry myself down those steps and out of my yard as fast as I can.
(I also stop the timer when I get back to my doorstep.)

I don't think it really matters. Me personally, I start the time once I get to the road or wherever I'm officially "starting," because I use the map tracker on here and don't usually include my house on the routes.

It really doesn't matter. Are you walking to get to the road? Do you have a long driveway? I don't start timing until I start on the road, but that's usually because I'm waiting for my GPS watch to pick up, fiddling with my iPod, or getting the dog's leash untangled from my ankles. ;)
It's up to you.

are you supposed to time your walks as you leave the house or when you actually get to the road to walk?
