I just started using kurviger.de (and calimoto). I don’t get it. Sorry, I’m so upset. Almost every navigation tool on earth has access to up-to-date information on closed roads and uses it successfully (most of the time) to calculate a detour. Why not kurviger.de? As far as I know in Deutschland these informations must be made available online publicly for free. In the example below the road is not “potentially closed” but definitively absolutely closed most probably till december or longer. You could say it doesn’t even really exist at the moment. And kurviger knows it from the related OSM data. Why would anyone want to plan to use it? I ran into multiple of these trying to cross the Schwarzwald two weeks ago and was forced to use boring straight roads instead. I’d rather like to support an website/application that guides me routes I can really use.
And how can you miss out to display (potentially) closed roads right away?
- Calculate route
- Sorry, we’re closed
- Add shaping point
- Sorry, that’s closed, too.
I imagine that you are a low budget project with lots of work for little revenue. But, please, this is important. This needs to be included first. This is like an online sneaker shop without the option to filter results by shoe size. (Yes, I’m talking about footlocker). Why care about exporting routes to any fancy navigation device/app if it tries to take me to unaccesible bends.
