    I know that. So what? Who is talking about buying lights in Germany anyway? Strange.

    Actually, I was quite satisfied with addressing it once. I replied to zacster because he didn't understand what I was talking about. It's you that are OCD about it.

    Anyway, what compulsion makes...

    You can look at the \Garmin folder with the device attached to you PC. The file name for each file have to be unique (if you have two maps installed, you will see two "*.IMG" files.

    Why do you keep posting such useless stuff?

    Read what I wrote carefully. Battery flashing lights almost always have a solid mode.

    I know about the solid light requirement in Germany. (No one was talking about buying a light in Germany...

    ???

    Huh? You were saying that lights with a flashing mode couldn't be used in Germany.

    Since all (that I know of) flashing lights have a solid mode, that is incorrect (except very unually).

    Bicycle lights are much smaller and less bright than flashing construction lights (and there are often many more lights at construction sites).

    The advantage of a blinking rear light is that...

    I don't think there are any battery-powered blinking rear lights that don't also have a solid (non-blinking) option.

    Note that the difference us also related to the radius. The two radii are approximately "(622+32)/2" and "(622+23)/2". A difference of about 4mm on 361mm or 1.5%.

    It's not clear what circumference you are talking about here. The OP is talking about two different tires (with different sizes).

    I suppose you mean the effective circumference (while riding) is...

    The circumference of the 32mm tire is larger. The wheel sensor measures rotations. A larger circumference/distance value per rotation/time means the computed speed will be higher than actual speed by...

    The Google map/navigation app has a bicycle (and pedestrian) mode that should keep you off highways.

    That's one reason some people stick with the Garmins.

    What app are you using for navigation?

    You should check-out the cue-sheet app. A friend used voice-prompts on the ridewithgps app on a long...

    I suppose. It's just not something many people would do. Though, I figure that the display choices made in the cue-sheet app are related to what you are talking about.

    Computationally, the phones...

    Well, he's mounting it on his handlebar. And I was replying to a commment that was talking about backlights. That strongly suggests that it's going to be looked at.

    Clearly, backlights are useful for riding in the dark.

    Cycling computers, like the Garmin Edge 800, have a display that works OK in sunlight without the backlight.

    Control points pin the route to the map. You can't drag them with the route.

    There's no requirement to "solely rely" on it. I doubt that a good navigator would ever do that anyway.


    It might be interesting to hear how.

    It's not like cue-sheets always work!

    You can deal with the figure-8 problem by splitting the route into two sections (which might actually make the route-following of the 800/810 more reliable).
