Navigation taking me off road

Post by Markt » Sun May 13, 2018 7:05 am

Hi,

I love the routes the Karoo gives me but sometimes it sends me down minor roads that turn into muddy off-road tracks through Farmer’s fields, which my road bike doesn’t like. Is there anyway to configure navigation so that it stays on tarmac.

Presumably you're planning the route on the Dashboard? If so, then you'll see a toolbar down at the bottom-left of the screen. There's a bike icon and if you click on that you can select the type of riding, between road, gravel and mountain. You might find that it's already set to road, though (I think that's the default). If so, and it's still sending you down paths you don't want, and if it won't let you re-route, then I suggest using another site to plan the routes. The Dashboard planner is lacking a great deal of functionality that other sites such as ridewithgps.com and plotaroute.com have had for ages.

Thanks Steve, it does seem to be on road mode already, so I’ll try one of the other sites you mentioned
Thanks
