Trail timings reported incorrectly?
« on: July 13, 2016, 03:20:20 pm »
I have produced a series of trails of a trip through Holland by bike. I just noticed that the reporting of the time by the "Calculate" operation on the Editor seems to generate wrong results, unless the Editor cleverly notices when one has stopped moving (as a bike computer would do). In one example, the difference between start and finish times in the raw GPX file is 432 minutes, but is reported as 189 minutes!

Is this a bug or a feature?

The time computed by our SityEditor Web application is an estimation based on the distance, the uphill and an average speed by activity type (for hiking, bike, mountain bike and horse).

Has the process of time computing been upgraded at all ever since? Do people still report incorrect trail timings?
