Anyone else see this difference? Does anyone know why this would be?
This is a very commonly reported non issue.
The Trip Computer records track length at a rate of one waypoint per second.
If you have your Track Log set to record more often, your recorded track length will likely be longer than the Trip Computer Odometer reports.
Similarly, if you have it set to record less often, it will likely be shorter than the Trip Computer Odometer.
