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
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!
Kurviger 1.10.1 (Beta) is on Google Play (instructions):
- Navigation: avoid roadblock action (Pro)
Some improvements and remove 100m to avoid corner cases.
- Navigation: route indicator improvements (Pro)
Use rerouting options for convenience and consistent settings.
- Navigation: (optionally) voice guidance after instruction points (Pro)
Algorithm fine tuning, please test and report with route examples.
- Navigation: off route notification option (Pro)
Speak “Route missed” message once when interval is set at 60".
- GPS logging (Pro)
Record track during navigation or follow modes automatically.
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.
Kurviger 1.10.2 (Beta) is on Google Play (instructions):
- Navigation: voice language options (Pro)
Select navigation voice language separately from app language.
- Navigation: Czech, Italian, Polish, Swedish voice navigation (Pro)
New voice languages available for navigation and more to come.
- Various improvements
Separate options for off route warning + off route tone frequency.
Today I did a short testride on this route
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.
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.
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.
Kurviger 1.10.4 (Beta) is on Google Play (instructions):
- Routing: (optionally) arrows show the route direction
An option in routing settings shows the route(s) direction with arrows, useful for route planning or navigation.
- Stability improvements
The website just received a route direction indication as well .
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
Can be enabled in “Settings | Routing | Route direction”.
Got it. Thanks for your quick reply. I will try it at my next trip.
Just realized that the arrow’s color even depends on the route color (brightness).
Great work ! (at first I thought this is because I’m using the dark app theme)
Route arrows + outline color depend on selected route color’s luminance.
White on dark colors, black on light colors, seen also in color preference.
