Where the red circle hits your track 100 miles out, you can search for any possible camp grounds or fuel locations in the area using BC. The red circles can give you a visual aid in helping you plan a trip.
If you have 'Proximity Alert' enabled on the gps, it will tell you when you reach the ‘Proximity Value’. The gps will inform you when you enter the proximity point and when you ride out the other side.
Thanks for this tip. Sounds like a great option to utilize.
