Re: Garmin Edge 705

Did you accidentally use the wrong routing profile (car/motorcycle instead of bicycle or foot)? Or did you tell your unit to avoid unpaved roads? The ways are tagged with bicycle=yes, so with the mkgmap default style (which Lambertus is using at should allow bicycle routing. At least my Edge 705 can route over similar tracks and paths.

Yes, if you download maps, you should read the readmes and helpfiles that come with the maps. Then you wouldn't need to ask such useless questions.
