    Maaaaybe. If the OSM path info is a close match for the route points that might be possible.

    Yup, OSM db isn't fast. I should make it do the current route area only instead of the whole map.

    ^ yeah gmaps is the way to go really. It has vastly more POI data than OSM does.

    Also, can it compare road surfaces like Komoot? That'd be useful.

    Can you post a screenshot? I downloaded komoot and had a look but didn't find that feature.

    You can hit the "unpaved" toggle on the maps tab in routecheck to highlight those roads within the current view box.

    @cjr Do you have a paid account on rwgps? Looks like you might need that in order to import POIs - I just tried even a short route with points and it imported into rwgps but no POIs.

    Never thought about cue sheet.. the site won't export it so that explains why it disappears when re-imported to rwgps. But it might be quite easy to keep the existing one from rwgps and include it with the re-export, if it's in the loaded route. I'll look into it.

    Update: No luck, sorry. Added the section to export but rwgps ignores it when re-uploaded.

    Add multiple GPX files?

    Like, end to end so it treats it as one? Or just for convenience so you don't need to switch between em?

    Would it be possible to add satellite images as one of the options for maps?

    Added, along with road/terrain etc.

    Oh my god, I've had that ^ plugin info tab open in my browser for 10 months. I'm the master of procrastination.

    Not sure I want to try another set. Maybe will give the Panaracer GK Slick a go.

    That would be my next choice if I wasn't happy with these. Some friends have the GK slick and they rave about em. For what it's worth I run the 36c Biancas at 55/60psi for ~85kg combined bike/bag/dork weight.

    The thing I disliked most about the Biancas was the on road grip, or lack there of. The are covered in little ribs. After some pretty hairy braking experiences where it loses grip in a very on off way, I called them, "ribbed for my displeasure".

    Weird to hear that. I've been on the 36mm TL version for six months, on long rides, in snow/rain, on gravel.. no issues at all. Love them.
