Hallo, I’m new here. Its my first topic. See also my profile.
I am using only my smartphone to navigate. The smartphone is always in the motorcycle jacket. I only drive according to voice instructions. This is the only solution for me to be navigated on my naked bike (motorcycle)! The voice instructions have to come unambiguously and at the right time. I definitely want to avoid stopping and pulling my smartphone out of my jacket to see the display or to interact with the app!
And now the problem:
Unintentionally I just took a wrong turn. Or I went straight when I was supposed to turn. I want to be navigated back on the original route. “Calculate route” comes as voice output. Nothing else. I just keep driving in my direction because I don’t get any further instructions! Soon I’ll hear “Calculate route” again. This is repeated again and again. Now I look at the smartphone. I should have turned around from the start! With the re-calculations the start (respectively my current location) is getting further and further away from the destination. I tested this several times. This also happens in similar situations, not only with dead end streets.
Suggestion for improvement: After a route recalculation, a voice instruction should come immediately on how to proceed! In this case e.g. “If possible please turn around”. (Hint: My old navigation app Navigon, which I cannot use any more unfortunately, gave me instructions how I can change my direction in this case.)
This is a very serious problem for me because I can only drive according to voice instructions. I do not see the display! I found topics with similar descriptions. The problem is not new but not solved! I’m not the only one with this problem. And NO, we are NOT talking about corner cases here.
Please fix it as soon as possible!
Yes, I’ve read the documentation:
Here is my simple route created in the app. I have Internet connection.
1.) Creating a very simple route
2.) Complete route before starting the tour.
3.) Still on the right way
4.) Just turn missed! The route is recalculated. No further voice instruction!
5.) Re-calculate the route again! No further voice instructions! I’m getting further and further away from the destination because I still drive in the opposite direction related to the re-calculated route!
6.) Driving stopped. Route overview.
