First, let me say I’ve grown to LOVE this app. Thank you!
When I ride alone on a planned route, I like using the voice instructions as a prompt for a turn that is ahead. The rest of the time I can focus on the road, without looking at the map. When I ride with others, and we are using helmet communication, I turn off voice navigation. When I am leading the group, I would still like to be able to receive a visual cue that a turn is coming up. Something that would quickly grab my attention, like a screen color change, or something of that nature.
I don’t know how hard it would be to implement, but I would love it if there was an option for a screen flash or visual queue in place of the voice instructions when voice guidance is turned off.
I understand, and I’m not trying to be argumentative. Where my phone is placed, if the screen flashed, most times I would see it in my peripheral vision (even though I’m looking at the road). Maybe I’m wrong, but I think I would notice. I can continue with my current setup and will still be very happy.
I am looking into the screen saver settings, and I can’t seem to get it to work in simulation mode. I will test it on a ride later today. Thanks again for your time and effort. I appreciate your responses.
Yes, of course I am aware of that. But perhaps more important than this would be the possibility of an (optional) beep preceding the voice prompt.
Once, I had a case where the battery of the BT kit that delivered the sound to the helmet died. In such a situation, the messages played through the loudspeaker are barely audible and a beep would be useful.
An alternative audio channel would be recommended so that this beep cannot be heard through the headphones, but only through the loudspeaker
