recalculating time ?

I read about long recalculating time on long routes....
How long is long ?
For instance is it as long as it takes mapsource to recalculate while putting the route together ?
My first route is Oregon to Maine with many points to force the route onto the roads I want. Second route is Maine to Oregon.
I jusy installed the 2720 and am leaving Monday , so any help appreciated.

Go ahead and try it. Follow your route for a while then deviate, take a wrong turn, go down a different road, what ever, you will then find out how long it takes to recalculate. You will also see if it stays on your intended route.

I recommend breaking it up into smaller routes but then that is just my preference. Enjoy the trip but don't focus too hard on the GPS and miss a hazard.

Last year when I went form Cleveland, OH to Seattle, I had one long route in the GPS. Reroutes did not take that long. (Always less than 10 seconds?) You'll be fine.

Once you have one long route, breaking it up into smaller routes is VERY simple. Food for thought.

Yes. Every 400, 600 or 800 miles (whatever you want to ride per day) you could add a waypoint. Then just chop off the rest of the route and save that as one day's route. Make sense?

Just make sure you always use the "Save As" feature so you're not screwing up the original route file.

You can put all those routes into one .gdb file. No reason to do the "save as" routine. I have 14 different routes in my vacation plan. You can display, or not display, any or all of them.

Oh, yeah, recalc time. I can't say for sure on a longer route, but a 100 mile route was recalc'ing in about 5 seconds on my 2720. I wouldn't put more than 1000 miles into a route. The issue would be getting stuck in a recalc state, because you keep passing the next turn. That would only happen in a fairly dense population area (or road area). I would think you want to keep the recalc time down to about 15 seconds or less, if possible.

I'm not sure exactly what makes recalc time longer. I would guess it isn't the length of the route, but the different options of reaching each waypoint on it. The more options for reaching the waypoint, the longer the recalc time. A route across Montana and North Dakota would probably recalc fine, but one from D.C. to Syracuse might be a struggle. I have tested this theory yet, but it seems to make sense.
