Kurviger 1.10.4 (Beta)

have tested the “next unvisited waypoint” option on a 410km round trip… works very well… thankfully I can use Kurviger again as default nav system :slight_smile:

… at least as long as internet connection is available… which is often goods in short supply in Hunsrück-Eifel area… what about a new option to automatically use a simple shortest-way re-calculation when there is no internet connection when beeing off route?

Road network is not known when be off route without a routing engine underneath.

My next goal would be to handle that with the proper feature(s):


:+1: (many goals sounds good… had to use more than 10 chars :-))

Hi, the Voice guidance after instruction points feature definitely needs some more fine tuning.
It does not work nicely when turn instructions are following in a rapid sequence.
E.g. here near WP1 I got “turn right” “turn left” messages in rapid sequence.
Feels like it was playing the text of the already passed instruction mixed with the new instruction.

In other situations I got messages like “in 40m turn left”, followed by “turn left”
IMO the “in 40m” instruction shouldn’t be played.
I could provide more examples if that would help.

My settings were:

  • after instruction point
  • 2km
  • 1km
  • 300m

Kalman-Filter was on.

One tuning measurement could be to wait a bit longer before playing the next instruction, to be sure that the intersection has been passed safely.

Could need fine tuning, as it has become quite complicated.
Thanks for the example!

This is better, but there is still no possibility to get the “route missed” info only once, without getting a signal every 60s.

My idea above was something like this:
Off … 1s - 60s … “route missed” info only once

Anyway, no big deal.

Funktioniert wunderbar, Danke.

Works fine, thanks.

Today I did a short testride on this route
Looks promising. :+1:

I like it.

One observation with off route behavior:

When you return back to the route V1.10.2 doesn’t trigger any voice instructions at this point.
It might even skip the next turn instruction if it is too close.
I think this is OK.
Pre V1.10 versions immediately triggered the next turn instruction, even slightly before you were back on route, which was often misleading because it was too early.

:+1: Intuitive user interface here.

There isn’t anything specific changed in that area. When resume route the voice messages start playing again based on their frequency options.

:thinking: Maybe, in my test scenario I returned to a route point where I’ve already been.
I just did a few “leave the route and return back” for testing purpose.

Thanks for your great work. I learn every time I use Kurviger more about the app. Do I have to activate the arrows somewhere? It doesn’t show up and I can’t find something. 1.10.4 (Beta) is installed.

Many thanks, Nico
