I know everyone must become tired of GPS questions from the uninformed, like myself, but I'd appreciate your GPS advice.
I was on a ride with a person who had a Garmin 2610 (now discontinued). He showed me an easy to set feature which I would find important in my soon to buy GPS. He used it to route us back. Garmin refers to it as;
Adjustable Road Class Preference ÔÇö How about taking the road less traveled? Users can adjust preferences for major, medium, and minor road categories.
As I recall he went to a screen adjusted some bars on his 2610 GPS to emphasize the smallest roads, while de-emphasizing the quickest time a lot, and shortest distance somewhat. (Each setting could be varied from one extreme to the other.) It took us back fairly directly over some dirt roads I'd never been on along with some unlined paved roads that connected in places I hadn't known.
We tried to access this feature on another riders Zumo but couldn't find it. I looked on Garmin's site and didn't see Adjustable Road Class Preference mentioned on Zumo but they do show the Zumo and 2820 as having Choice of route setup (faster time, shorter distance, off road):
For those that are familiar with both the 2610 and Zumos/2820, do they operate the same in this regard? TIA
