Default Estimated Travel Times - Golf Cart

I like TV GPS app. While not perfect, it is useful. But with all due respect, there is one issue that's always amazed me for an app that is so specialized...

The estimated travel time for golf cart travel is not even close. By calculation using your distances...which I assume includes all the little diversions golf cart travelers must deal with...the average speed is usually below 10, most frequently around 9.5 mph. Even with all the necessary cautions and never going over 20, cart drivers can easily average over 15 mph.

I’m a bike rider. I ride for exercise but do not push very hard at all. I ride at a pace probably considered casual for many bike riders. And I am not a street rider. I use the MMP's just as if I was in a golf cart. Yet I get to destinations using my bicycle in far less time than your estimated time for golf cart travel displays.

FWIW.

Hi and Thank you for contacting us.

You are correct! They are off and we have complained multiple times to the company we go through and they said at this time it isn't possible for us to adjust.

We are staying on them every month or so, asking if they have that feature available and will keep on them.

It is a estimation based on around 8 miles per hour for some reason.
Once you get out there and start driving on your route, it will change and update as you drive.

Like I said....We will keep asking them and hopefully they will get a fix for that.
