Average Speed Stting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does the new version allow the user to set the average speed for each type of road, as it did in the third version. My current version has given me an average speed of 58mph even when all the setting are set to the lowest average speed.?

  • It has slider bars for 5 different road types but they are not numerically calibrated.

    Download the trial version to see for yourself.

  • Paul Larson's DriveSpeed Addin (free download from my site, here: http://www.mapping-tools.com/drivespeed/index.shtml ) lets you set actual numeric speeds;  but with recent versions of MapPoint we've found MapPoint sometimes wanders from these figures (eg. Germany Autobahns seem problematic). One hypothesis that seems consistent is that MapPoint is only using the speeds as a guide rather than hard limits.
