Wow, this is already very cool, also including transparency

The pause/resume button is only available in live navigation mode, not in simulation, right? No problem, just a question.

Also the map orientation modes are cool… For mode Route overview I would propose (just as a nice to have without any priority) an additional zoom factor to be kept, either as a slider for zoom percentages from 0 to 100% or some fixed overview modes (10%, 25%, 50%, 100% zoom)

Pause / continue on nav-button is available in real time navigation,
as simulation has already its own player buttons with more options.

Interesting idea, let’s discuss it in the feature topic:

Hey. Thanks for the Route overview - it’s very useful, but only while driving, in addition, as an option quickly available when navigating. Therefore, it seems to me that this view should be temporary and after 10 seconds return to the previously set. Maybe holding the compass for a long time should activate this mode temporary?

complete other opinion here: it is good when it is permanent. You just have to press on the compass to select the other mode again (just 2 little button presses).

the temporay mode is already available by just zooming with 2 fingers, then after some seconds it switches already back.

I have changed transparency, so I can see that part of the route that is sometimes hidden under the navigation panel. :slightly_smiling_face:

Super Idee, hab ich gleich umgesetzt.

Great idea, I put it right away.

Great work gents! A lot of useful improvements!
As a beta tester I recognized the following issues:

  • Routing waypoint type: no menu pops up when long press on waypoint. I can only move the waypoint.
  • Navigation change Display Color: can’t find this setting.
  • Settings Navigation Auto-Zoom: typo in German translation “Enfternung”

Waypoints menu is available when free their long press with “Settings | Map | Crosshair placement”.

It’s available in “Settings | Navigation | Display color” at the bottom.

Hi devemux86
Thanks for your quick reply!

Got it! I never used this functionality and this way to place my waypoints. But this way is also convenient for me :slight_smile: Nevertheless, to avoid further user confusion, I would suggest to force all users to this new way and remove this setting.

Hm, I only can change the color but not the transparency…

The color dialog allows to change all ARGB color channels.
There are the 4 common sliders for: Alpha, Red, Green, Blue.

Can produce nice display results, like demonstrated by community here.

Crosshair placement is default for all new users.

There is a discussion for the need of drag waypoints, please see here:

Had some app crashes when automatic recalculation was active. Unfortunately I can’t say when exactly this happens. I hear the voice telling calculating… then the app quits without any message. Since I was on a 5 day motorcycle trip with other guys, I deactivated the automatic recalculation and then it worked.

the new features with pause/continue work very well.

Please provide date + device model to see if there is a report from that.

What routing service was selected in settings?
Was there internet available? Was screen off?

To see if there was an actual crash report or device “closed” the app for other reasons.

Date was 9.6.2020, device was a Samsung S9+ SM-G965F

Routing-Service was Kurviger-BRouter, unfortunately not sure anymore if internet connection was available. Screen was on.
Pretty sure route calculation mode was “next waypoint” as I planned to use this on the normal journey to the hotel and then changed it to strict mode for the rally day trips. The rallies were done with automatic route calculation off which worked ok… no crash any more then.

Thanks for the details.

Unfortunately there is nothing reported all these days, so we cannot check what happened.

Could be something with the partial rerouting, that’s why cannot be THE solution for everything.

Kurviger internet availability is best solved in another way and not with mixing routing providers.
