Always helpful ! its good to see some of my earlier stuff revisited and confirmed (ie it jogs my memory!), and different takes on some things that I had never thought about.

I start with theories and then try everything I can think of to support them or pull them apart. Its only by doing that, that I can home in on a better theory ! I mentioned it because I have had a couple of issues with closest entry that I couldn't put my finger on, and it was another unknown to sidetrack me. I decided to keep it simple and never bother testing RUT when using CEP - except at one point I thought that it may trigger the behaviour - but it doesn't recalculate the whole route, which was the trigger that always developed into RUT behaviour.
Have owned Zumo 550, 660 == Now have Zumo XT2, XT, 595, 590, Headache
Use Basecamp (mainly), MyRouteApp (sometimes)
