Blocking roads
« on: February 14, 2013, 07:07:18 am »
I'm on the Snowdrop on Saturday.
The route would have used two bridges which at the moment are impassable due to flooding.
How do I put a temporary block on those bits of road so routing doesn't use them?

You can do it in Mapsource (Preferences, Routing, Advanced) but AFAIK not on the GPS. 
I think the best bet would be to draw 2 short sections of track to go the way you think will be best in these areas, and load these onto the GPS along with the route.  Go into the Track (or Course) menu and colour them bright and (important) set them to 'show on map'. 
Then on the day just let the routing do its own thing but follow your tracks to get round the problem.
It's not dark yet but it's getting there.

Surely you're just looking for a question to answer here ... I thought Phil had issued a revised .gpx file?

I'm not going anywhere near any postdiluvial sediment. Which means most country lanes will not be used.
