    Under ‘APN management’ on the mifi app I get the choices below. It was on pay as you go as default, which was working but I thought quite slow. What do the options mean, and which one should I set it to for best internet? ( the internet still works with each of them selected)

    You probably need to edit the APN or create your own
    see guide here

    here are the settings, not all may be needed in a mifi device
    Name: Vodafone internet
    APN: wap.vodafone.co.uk
    Proxy: Not set or empty
    Port: Not set or empty
    Username: Not set or empty
    Server: Not set or empty
    MMSC: http://mms.vodafone.co.uk/servlets/mms/
    MMS proxy:
    MMS port: Not set or empty
    Authentication type: PAP
    APN Type: default
    APN protocol: IPv4 / IPv6
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4 / IPv6

    Gpsies used to have an option to evenly space gpx waypoints.

    Is there another way to do this?

    If using waypoints then you are using a gpx route file is there any particular reason for that over using a gpx track file?

    Failing that, is there much of a functional difference between budget Shimano SPDs and higher end stuff? Or are you just paying for reduced weight?

    The latter

    My M520 are lasting forever, 13 years to date

    Its a shame it has a Nazi problem.

    Remember BBC did a programme when England football captain Sol Campbell told fans not to go to Ukraine unless they wanted to return back in a coffin.

    I see that this is your first post on LFGSS, maybe that says something!

    Just need to source the correct rivnut? anything else I'm missing?

    Use aluminium ones, stainless while they may seem a better option are much harder to set

    ensure you buy open ended ones and not closed end.

    drilling size is 7.1mm if needed

    My wife's ebike battery has died, and I'm being quoted £300+ to recell it, whereas it's about £210 to buy the exact same one from AliExpress. Is that about usual, cost wise, to replace some 18650 batteries?

    Does not seem unreasonable seeing how much spot welding and equipent is needed, not all 18650 batteries are equal.

    Everything I really need is typing in an address and then follow a route

    Garmin on device routing is the worst possible option and I would always pre load a gpx file for a route

    I have used device such as the Etrex H, the HCX, Etrex 30 etc etc

    they all work well enough but the routing can be a little /lot wayward.

    Address finding using OSM and older devices is generally not a good option as hardly supported
