Routing Radius Question

We are full time and limit our daily drive to 3-4 hours per day. I average 65-70 MPH when driving, but entered 65 into the Default Settings. I then entered MIN/MIDDLE/MAX distance to 195/230/260 respectively (3/3.5/4 hour intervals.


I've been noticing that the radius displayed seems to be off but roughly 1/2 hour. A CG picked on the GREEN line sometimes shows a 3 hours, other times 3.5 hour driving time. Same with the YELLOW and RED Radius lines. If fact I selected a CG on the red line that showed a driving time of over 5 hours when it should be 4.


I am in the middle of a trip and have been using this tool extensively, 1st to learn it and 2nd to route my trip. So I have been selecting CG's based on the Radius rings, but double checking the drive time to insure I am not overshooting my preferred drive time.

The radius circles are straight-line distances, while the driving time and distance are based on the actual roads - that's why there's a discrepancy.

We like to travel about 4 hours a day also. We have found that 50mph as an average speed is more realistic.

We keep our average speed at 55mph and it's pretty close as well.
Rings are as the crow flies.
