Custom speed settings

Post by xpc316e »

I recently bought a Zumo 595LM and wonder whether I can alter the speeds it uses to calculate more accurately the ETA on a journey and reflect my riding style. I have managed to do it on my other Garmins, but I cannot see a method of doing it on the 595. Can anyone help? TIA

Welcome to the forum.

I saw that one time, the speeds used to calculate, but didn't think much of it since my ETA tends to be within a few minutes. I think it was when my 595 was connected to the computer using Base Camp but I can't remember. I'll see if I can find it again. Wish me luck!

Yes, that is how my old Garmins were adjusted to suit my style, but I cannot figure out how to do it on the 595.

You can adjust the speeds in Basecamp but I don't know if that will carry over to a route that you send to your device.

In Basecamp go to Edit....Options....Click on Activity Profile....Click on the Routing Tab....Scroll down to the bottom under Speed and click on Customize.
