Sat Nav speeds...
I would be interested to know what speed settings people use in their satnavs for the different road classes.
I keep tinkering with mine in an attempt to make it choose a more obvious selection of routes. I know that sometimes I choose a less efficient route just because I know it, but sometimes DigitalDot just gets it wrong and when I ignore her and she re-calculates she comes up with a shorter AND quicker route! That's just plain wrong.
My speed settings are currently M:67, R:37, U:25
Has anybody found a better set.
From a number of years experience (admittedly a few years ago now) of writing vehicle routing and scheduling software (in the days before it became a consumer product) we found that more than 3 road classes were actually needed.
O how I wish I could get my hands on the source code...
