Known Issues in Version 3.16

Issue: It is not possible to upload GPX routes to Garmin devices attached to a USB port.
Affected: Windows and MacOSX distributions
Workaround: Use the GPX or GPSman export and another program like the Garmin Mapsource program or gpsbabel to upload the exported files.

Issue: Files created with the GPX route export have no street names.
Affected: Windows distribution and Linux/Unix/MacOSX without perl module XML::LibXML installed
Workaround: Use the GPSman route export instead. On Linux/Unix/MacOSX systems, you can try to install XML::LibXML e.g. with cpan XML::LibXML

Issue: BBBike starts, shows the splash screen and dies. If a console is visible, then the message Modification of a read-only value attempted at bbbike line 291. appears.
Affected: Windows distribution, other operating systems are very unlikely
Workaround: There are some possibilities:
  • In line 289 of C:\Programme\BBBike\bbbike\bbbike, remove the word __SPEC__ completely. Use a better editor than notepad to edit the file; WordPad should work.
  • Or define the environment variable TMPDIR to a valid temporary directory.
  • Or create the directory c:\tmp.
