Question about my Garmin GPS

Hello, I'm brand new here. I got my brand-new Garmin GPSMAP 76Csx last year and I love it. It's great to travel with in the car or to hike with. I have a couple of questions though.

 

What's the difference when I set the unit to "Car/Motorcycle" compared to "Pedestrian/Bicycle"? Does it calculate things differently? If so, what does it calculate differently?

 

Thanks in advance,

Yes. Things like: pedestrians are allowed to go the wrong way down one-way streets, vehicles are not; vehicles are allowed to go on interstate highways, pedestrians and bicycles are not (with rare exceptions in some places); pedestrians may be able to turn left at intersections where vehicles are not. I'm sure there are more, but you get the idea.

Thanks Roy. This looks like a good place to learn. Your answer makes sense but I doubt I would have thought of those differences by myself.
