[mkgmap-dev] Garmin Edge 705 bug in bicycle routing

From Marko Mäkelä marko.makela at iki.fi on Tue Aug 25 12:57:58 BST 2009

Hi all,

I just updated


with an example where the bicycle route from A to C is much longer than the
routes from A to B and B to C.  I guess but have not verified that this is
because of an access restriction that I added near B.  It seems that the
routing engine in Garmin Edge 705 ignores cycleways in the middle of the
route on longer routes.  If bicycling is prohibited on the major road, then
you may be sent to a long detour, ignoring the cycleway running next to
the major road.

I may check this later, by temporarily reverting the bicycle=no on a
section of the major road.  I still have a copy of the finland.osm that
I used for the test.
