i hope it is ok, when i start an new topic for each idea, question?
i use navigation system since a long time, and one of the features i use very often on my tomtom or on other navigation systems is to switch between the navigation view and a view of the the rest of the route to the destination.
Especially in areas in which I am not very familiar, it is extremely practical if you can quickly get an overview of the rest of the route and then jump back to the normal navigation view. I thought that would work if you pressed the blue arrow symbol while navigating, but the system somehow zooms out, and when I press the navigation button again, it stays zoomed out. I found a similar function in a submenu: “Show the whole route”, but on the one hand I can’t get there while driving, on the other hand I only want to see the remaining distance and not the route I have already driven.
Is such a function integrated I just didn’t find it, or can you add such a feature?
no auto zoom is disabled.
tapping to see what you want to see is a lot easier while driving, like trying to zoom properly and positioning the map.
i change from tomtom to kurviger, because i hate tomtom and his navigation, but this tomtom feature is for me very helpful. tomtom positions the rest of the route on the map so that it fits exactly on it.
one of the few things that work really well
In my favorite car navigation (Polish NaviExpert), this is solved just like TomTom, as @wernerz showed - along with the zoom buttons. After pressing this, the entire remaining route is displayed, and the map is positioned north up (relevant information is displayed in the pop-up notification). After a few seconds, it returns to standard navigation. A very useful solution.
If you don’t want to change anything in the interface, then maybe a long press on the zoom-out would turn on the route preview for a moment? You probably won’t deny that it is a useful feature that is worth implementing
At home, you can comfortably click everything. The problem is that you can’t press the miniature compass in the glove during the trip, not to mention using the side menu.
That’s why I opt for the maximum use of hardware keys; and the timer to return to the standard navigation screen. And that’s why I decided to use on a moto armored Panzer-Samsung with hardware navigation keys
