Automatic rotation / landscape mode

I have a new special cell phone for the kurviger app. The Kurviger app has now been installed and is working. Only the automatic rotation between portrait and landscape doesn’t work, even though the cell phone is set to rotate automatically and other apps (e.g. Google Maps) also rotate. Do I have to adjust something extra for kurviger ones?

Landscape is only supported in navigation or follow mode.

Not yet in planning or normal view, but that will come.

Thank you for your quick reply. Did I understand it correctly that if I have the cell phone in the “landscape” holder and I start the navigation, then the navigation also turns to horizontal?

Correct and in addition another blue button appears and with this you can then fix the landscape mode against unwanted rotation.

Does the Kurviger app have landscape mode? I am using a Samsung Galaxy Active Tab 3 and the device cradles on the bike in landscape mode.

Planning = No
Navigation = Yes

Sigh, this is not a good design. Please ping me if that changes and I will take another look at Kurviger.

:rofl: :joy:

Is landscape mode on the release plan and if yes when is the expected release date? Just wonder when I should check back.

During navigation landscape mode works excellent.

Yes,

I got that earlier, just wondering when they will fix landscape mode when not navigating?

Hi SonWon, landscape mode in planning view is on our To-Do list, but it’s not very high priority at the moment. I’m sorry you will not get more concrete information than that. We’re a very small team so things take time, I hope you can understand :slight_smile:

Thank you for the reply!

Kurviger is one of the better web route planning tools I have seen. And the integration with the navigation app is a huge plus since GPS files typically do not import well if you need turn-by-turn instructions. I think this is more due to a flaw with no standard GPS file format and apps that do not create proper GPS files. Anyway Kurviger checks most of the boxes I am looking for. However my navigation tablet is in a locked cradle and I really dislike trying to operate the app in the cradle while the app is in portrait mode.

I do hope you move forward with Landscape mode planning since it is just an interface rearrangement. All of the underlying code is already there.

I’ll continue to follow developments and hope for the best.

Super, thank you very much. I’ve been using Kurviger for a long time, and now I can finally use it with my iPhone. One annoying thing though: can’t the navigation be used in landscape format? I drive a BMW and use the cradle as a holder, which requires landscape format.

Press start Navigation, than you’ll find a extra blue button to turn the display to landscape format
