App: Display next waypoint

Maybe a change that doesn’t require extra space can help: instead of the general waypoint sign, display the waypoint number right away:
2021-11-24 20_58_30-Navigation_ Display name of next waypoint - Discussion _ Android App - Curvy 2021-11-24 20_58_30-Navigation

Of course, displaying the waypoint name would be another improvement …


At least my Zumo660 and my BMW Navigator 5 do it in the same way as Kurviger does:

  • Name of point is shown when reaching point (that means no turn hints between current position and that point)
  • Navigator 5 shows only Names of ViaPoints (Shapingpoints are not shown in field). The Zumo 660 does not distinguish between ShapingPoints and ViaPoints.

But you don’t have to copy exactly what Zumo660 or BMW Navigator do but make Kurviger much better than the others :wink:

When you make a route through places you don’t know the names of the street (or road) where you are and where you will go after the next crossroads they don’t help you at all.
If you do not know the language (like Farsi), it is even worse because you try hard to find out what it says but what happens is that it is even worse because you lose concentration on the route and make it dangerous driving.

You need to find a way to know where you are going.
Preparing the route if you have put well-thought-out waypoints, with the name of the place you are interested in passing and/or visiting would help you a lot.

The first image in the second box shows the road number and probably also the name of the road or place where you are.
In the first line it is supposed to say where you are going, but surely it is where you want to go?

For example, the first line could be used to show the name of waypoint you are going to, at least in case you have visible the partial kms and time to get there (image 1). In case you have the total route in time and distance it could be kept as it is now (image 2).

In image 3 you can see the name of the waypoint I am going “San Stepanos Monastery”

Image 1 - visible the partial kms and time

Image 2 - visible the total kms and time

Thanks !

Please see the manual for what each navigation panel displays:
Kurviger PRO: Navigation, Simulation, GPS Recording, Screen Lock, Rerouting, More, Offline use [Kurviger Knowledgebase]

The first line has a specific purpose and other users may not want such change.

I will think about how it is possible and could be implemented.
(probably with another option)

Display of the next waypoint will be available as an optional extra panel.
When you tap the waypoint panel, the map moves briefly to the waypoint.


Available in Kurviger 2.2.9 (Beta).

It seems that the street names are shown in the panel although I have ticked off the checkbox. Same with turning instructions. Even if ticked off, they are shown in the panel.
It says for example “20 km Rice mill. Turning.” instead of “20 km Rice mill”
Show the next waypoint and the turning symbol in the panel with distance to it is nice, but not with written turning instructions.

If you mean the possible turn instructions (e.g. u-turn) on via points in the new panel,
it will be improved more in the next app update, so only the waypoint name appears.

Yes thanks, that’s what I meant.

The improvement will be available in the next app update.

very nice, just one remark:
by default all wp’s are named waypoints and with big font size I have no clue which waypoint is meant because the text is cut.
I only see Wegpunkt…

Would it be possible to display the waypoints as WP, so abreviated? WP1, WP2, WP3…
Then I wouldn’t need to rename every waypoint in order to be able to read the wp number.
When the waypoint has a special name, then of course display the name like it is.

Additionally why is the turn instruction written additionally? For example I have here a waypoint 14 which I only want to visit and then turn back. I don’t need it to be called " Wegpunkt 12 Wenden" , just “WP 14” would be fine, as long as it has no special name.

Your image shows the numbers.
1 word + number (without turn instruction) should always fit.

The improvement will be available in the next app update.
(mentioned here)

but not while driving, then I only see: “Wegpunkt…” or even “Wegpun…”

Maybe I don’t understand. I thought the improvement would be that it doesn’t show the turning instruction, but it still shows the “Wenden”, in englisch turn around for the WP 14

It is expected with extremely large font size…
The left and right panels are connected! :slightly_smiling_face:

do you mean the 2.2.11 then? Because I have already installed the 2.2.10 and this is still showing the turning instruction (I have now reduced the font size to show but I like the big font size because I then don’t need glasses.

The post was made after the Kurviger 2.2.10 (Beta) announcement,
so it can be available in the next app update.

perfect thanks… the abreviation for default wp naming, is this also something to manage?

There are no universal abbreviations in all languages and users may not understand them.

We could remove the distance (it already exists in the top-right distance panel).
Or make the waypoint panel multi-line.

no please not remove the distance, because then I see the distance to the next waypoint on the top and the distance to the destination right-hand side, I like that. Any idea how I could mass rename the wp names then in .kurviger files and in the web tool in the cloud files?
