Great! Thank you for another promising looking update!
I’m a little bit confused about the workflow for those new options.
I usually have “rerouting” disabled in the settings
I imported a new route and started navigation for the first time
I expected to see the new option dialog (to select “start” or “nearest point”)
But this dialog seems to be directly linked to the rerouting option.
So I have to go this way to get what I want:
activate “rerouting” (I’m using the “tap-on-next-instruction”-function for that)
now the rerouting options dialog appears, so I select “nearest point” (for example)
because I still don’t want automatic rerouting during my trip I’m now forced to deactivate it again (second tap on the “next instruction” field)
Seems a little bit inconvenient in my opinion. When starting a new route (after an import and while being off the route) it should be possible to select “start” or “nearest point”, even if “rerouting” is deactivated. And in this case it should not automatically activate this option (it should stay like it was in my settings).
Why? Because quite often I start my route while having an internet connection (maybe WLAN), but I don’t have a connection during my trip (which is the reason why I have usually have deactivated “rerouting”). So I want to have it calculated at my starting point, but only once and without using “rerouting” while being on the road.
Ok, I understand that I could have used this new function direcly when importing the route:
But usually I want to see the imported route before staring navigation. So I want to decide between “start” and “nearest point” after the import and when I first start navigation for this route.
I think this was like the old function (calculating route from my current starting point) worked. And this should equally be possible with the two new option “start”/“nearest point”. Particuarly if considering that “skip next waypoint” also re-calculates the route - but without automatically re-activating the “rerouting” setting if it is switched off.
I really love this new behaviour! Now it is possible to import GPX files from another platform and to see directly the original track (red line) in comparison to the route Kurviger calculated (blue line).
Didn’t test the other changes yet. But you’re doing a great job, that’s for sure!
Yes indeed, that’s the workflow we thought of . That the way we designed it. The idea is that automatic rerouting is disabled, so nothing should happen “automatically”. If you think this should be different, please let us know and we can discuss the pros and cons of each solution .
After some experience with V1.5 I would say well done.
The Import dialogue for *.gpx is more intuitive and easier to handle than before, despite it has more options. The separate options for overlay and for routing are a big improvement here.
What I like about starting navigation is, that no rerouting is done unintentionally.
If auto rerouting is on, and you start navigation in an off route situation, you have the opportunity to switch off auto rerouting. That’s great!
