Waar mag je nou wel of geen 130 rijden?

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/26

Waar je nou wel en geen 130 mag rijden is voor velen een zoekplaatje, ook voor mij.

Zelfs op de weg is het vaak niet duidelijk met een oerwoud aan borden en onderborden.

Ook on-line is er eigenlijk niet heel veel nuttige informatie te vinden, onderstaand is wat ik heb gevonden.

Veel plezier ermee (:

Samenvatting:

  • in de randstad mag je vrijwel nergens 130, zeker niet overdag
  • buiten de randstad liggen de grootste stukken 130 in het noorden (kop van Noord-Holland; Flevoland, Friesland, Groningen, Drenthe, met uitzondering van een fiks deel A28)

En de links:

Helaas zijn de JPEG kaarten slecht, die hadden PNG moeten zijn, maar ja, ze zijn verminkt met JPEG artefacten want veel web editors hebben geen oog voor beeld kwaliteit.

If your system is configured as Metric, then any app not honouring that have a UX #Fail

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/19

I love Google:

Especially since there is still software like Garmin Training Center for Mac on Mac OS X with – in the System Preferences – the Measurement Units set as Metric, insists on entering weight as lb, and workout distance in miles.

The reason is that Garmin Training Center on Mac OS X has its own “Measurement Units” settings. Where Mac OS lets the system wide setting be either “Metric”  or ” US”, Garmin choose between “Metric” and “Statute” (the latter is default, not the OS X setting).

The problem is twofold:

Garmin has head offices and most of their customers outside the USA, so why insist on US units being default, and why not link the setting to the Mac OS X Preference?

UX #fail.

Oh BTW: if you connect your Garmin device, and GTC still indicates “no fitness device was found”, then use a different USB Cable and don’t connect it through a hub: the device is very picky on talking over USB (charging over USB works with virtually any USB cable).

Garmin Training Center on Mac OS X insists in imperial units, even though the system is configured as metric.

Even after setting the Garmin Training Center to “Metric”, it still lists “Miles” in your workouts.
