Navigation: Display name of next waypoint


The navigation data box shows the distance and time to the end of the route or to the next waypoint.
I think it would be usefull to see the waypoint name as well.

end of the route

next waypoint


If you have defined a via point with a name,
it will appear at the top when you reach it.

A constant display would require another horizontal panel at the top.
As the top panel is reserved for the next turn instruction or via point.

Perhaps it would be more useful to know the name of the place (via point) we are coming to and not when to reach it.

We can choose to see the distance and time to get to the end of the route or the next waypoint but it does not show us the name of the waypoint where we are going, would it be possible that the first line of information on the screen showed us the name of the waypoint?



Next waypoint


You have asked that, please see the answer above.

Other users have not commented on how this would be useful or implemented
and if other navigators have it and how they display it.

Maybe it’s more interesting to know where we’re going and not when we got there.

Maybe it could be defined somewhere if the first line should show the name of the next turn statement (which in fact is already shown in the box on the left) or the name of the next via point and that the user set it to your preferences.

The top-left panel displays the next turn symbol.
The top panel also displays the next turn street (or via point).

Yes, the information on the next turn symbol is essential to know where to go. :slightly_smiling_face:
But perhaps some drivers will be more interested in knowing which waypoint they are going to than the name of the street they are going to on the next turn.
The name of the waypoint is placed by everyone when preparing the route, the name of the street may not give many people much information and will not make driving much easier. So maybe it would be good for the driver to be able to choose the information that will be most useful to him.

I also like the idea that the name of the next waypoint can be easily displayed. Additionaly the number of the Point should also be displayed. This is remembered even if you have not assigned a waypoint name.

Maybe a change that doesn’t require extra space can help: instead of the general waypoint sign, display the waypoint number right away:
2021-11-24 20_58_30-Navigation_ Display name of next waypoint - Discussion _ Android App - Curvy 2021-11-24 20_58_30-Navigation

Of course, displaying the waypoint name would be another improvement …


At least my Zumo660 and my BMW Navigator 5 do it in the same way as Kurviger does:

  • Name of point is shown when reaching point (that means no turn hints between current position and that point)
  • Navigator 5 shows only Names of ViaPoints (Shapingpoints are not shown in field). The Zumo 660 does not distinguish between ShapingPoints and ViaPoints.

But you don’t have to copy exactly what Zumo660 or BMW Navigator do but make Kurviger much better than the others :wink:
