[closed] course points pre warning

[closed] course points pre warning

Postby ARI » Sun Jul 03, 2011 3:59 pm

An idea in passing.

I have a Forerunner 305 and I am bothered by the fact that the warning came mostly too late. the possibility of making pre-warning is very useful. Unfortunately the fr305 only allows 100 waypoints. Doubling the number using this option reduces my travels to 50 real coursepoint. Is it possible to ensure that pre warning simply replace the waypoints? if in addition you can set pre-warning distance (m) would be perfect for me.

regards

Waypoints aren't used to mark directions, they're used more for points of interest.

Course points are used to mark turns. You can have hundreds of course points and you can even make course points X distance before the actual turn to act as a warning. The courses section allows you to create turn warnings at some given distance prior to the actual turn.

Yep ,
scuse for my bap translation, and replace all "waypoints" by "coursepoint".
What i know is that i cant use more than 50 "tun indication" on my course if i use the pre warning option.
Didn't know if i'm more clear ...

How about reading the plugin's online manual?

The warning "distance" is 10 seconds.
And, no I don't plan to make this configurable :roll:
