Avoid next X km of the route

Hi,
im Mode Navigation hat man ein Symbol für Einstellungen, was einen auf die allg. Einstellungen führt. Viele dieser Einstellungen sind während der Navigation nicht relevant. Es wäre mein Vorschlag, im Mode Navigation diesen button kontextsensitiv zu gestalten. Dann könnten Einstellungen navigationsrelevant aufgerufen werden. z.B.
Einstellungen allg. (so wie jetzt)
Tag/Nacht Umschaltung
Route gesperrt
Rerouting On/OFF

Das könnte man dann auch mit großen buttons machen, die sich mit Handschuhen oder bei einem kurzen Stop leicht bedienen lassen.
Route gesperrt würde dann ein short distance re-routing durchführen.
Rerouting on/off, wenn man mal kurz austreten will

Since we have already discussed in English, please let’s continue in English so that all users can easily understand and participate. With translators many meanings are lost and fail to understand.

Don’t clearly understand what you mean here, there are several categorized Settings in app.
Those in Navigation category are relevant preferences specifically for navigation process and all Settings categories should be accessible anytime.

We have in mind to offer a different UI while navigating for on/off cases like: Skip next waypoint, Auto zoom, Rerouting, Voice guidance, etc.

Hi,
wasn’t sure about writing in English. My experience in other Forums in Germany is that people complain, because they don’t understand. OK, will do!

That’s what I had in mind, too!

Something about the “etc.”
Situation: You drive in Navigation mode on your route and hit a road block. No signs for deviation, the sun is high and hot, on your sunglasses you can hardly see the display, contrast is low, you sweat like a pig under helmet and gloves. Almost impossible to modify the current route w/ new way points under such conditions on the small mobile screen, no mouse pointer, only your thick fingers… Hence you decide to make a U-turn, driving back to the last crossroad, hoping if you turn there at random choice right or left that re-routing will solve your problem. While you are driving back, the mobile keeps annoying you that you are driving in the wrong direction and that you should do another U-turn. In such cases Murphy is always around the corner, and in other Apps I had frequently the case that the re-routing was then driving me down into smaller and smaller streets, loosing completely my orientation and 10 min later the navigation has brought me to a point 500m behind the place where I did the 1st U-turn and where the road is still blocked. Another problem was that the re-routing decided about a new route to the next WP, which bypassed almost the complete original route segment. That’s usually the moment where you start screaming at the device and their developers.
What I am looking for is a 1 touch button in Nav-Mode telling the navigator that the road is blocked for x Km, (where x could be fix like 3 Km at a first implementation). A short term re-routing should then kick in and bring me around this road block back onto my old route x Km later. There must be caviates around this, because on Highways the Navigator should never tell you to make a U-turn, because this would be a security killer for your App.

Kurviger is a world-wide project and to make it easier for everyone to communicate it is preferred to write in English when being comfortable.

We had discussed that also in old forum here.

Indeed. @lve0200 you got the point. This is exactly what I wanted to ask for. A de-tour that will help me drive past the road blocks, construction sites etc.pp. Exactly that scenario as you describe happened to me 3 weeks ago
while riding to GAP. Normally one would hit “de-tour” and specify for how much meter/km the de-tour should be calculated. This is for example a nice feature of (recently discontinued) Navigon software.
This, together with the offline route calculation are for me the most important additions to the app as-is now.

Sounds good.
Avoid next xxx Km of the route would perfecly fit here :wink:

Hi,
may I bring back this issue, again, or has it been solved and I didn’t notice it?

It’s still in our todo list. :slightly_smiling_face:

Recently was added the Skip next waypoint.
