Relative newbie to Zumo 590

Post by dtrack »

Hi, bought a bike a couple of years ago that came with a Zumo 590. I've been struggling with issues of being forced to go back to a point in the route that I missed. After reading several posts here I think I have it figured out now.
Between BC and and the Zumo there's a lot of little details to learn.
Thanks to all the experienced users here who have shared their knowledge.

Welcome to the forum. It is a great place to figure out problems and learn different ways of doing things. Riding and traveling styles vary; what works well for one person doesn't necessarily fit another. The discussions here create an understanding of what is happening behind the scenes so that we can determine why things work, don't work, and works best for you.
