11.8.2 Patch 1

This patch requires version 11.8.2 which can be installed ONLY from the download site
Fixed Bugs

Tunnel patch

When a GPS device without a distance sensor is moved within a tunnel, it cannot record the distance and a Garmin Edge 705 is writing for all data points in the tunnel the same distance value.

When moving out of the tunnel, the first data point with GPS reception can have a difference of many kilometers to the previous data point so that the speed can be many hundreds of km/h.
