While navigating in “strict navigation mode” I discovered the effect that when pressing the navigation button, the actual route is cancelled, pressing again the navigation button drops “the knowledge” of already visited waypoints and starts the navigation again from the beginning.
Pressing the navigation button can also happen unwillingly. I would therefore propose (maybe this is only necessary in strict navigation mode) to stop an already started navigation only by long-press the navigation button and ask before “Want to stop navigation?” YES/NO. Yes - stops actual tour and shows planning mode, No - navigation proceeds. Long-pressing a button normally happens willingly. Short-press the navigation button could only switch between navigation mode and Planning/Overview Mode where the map/route can be zoomed, wp’s can be added or deleted, but an already started navigation doesn’t get interrupted or cancelled.
I am not a native english speaker. If it is not pursuable, please tell what I should explain better.
Don’t know if this is technically possible: maybe an additional idea for more fail safe handling in case of unexpected app closing or by user failure: I guess the already visited waypoints are stored in an array. Why not writing the actual route incl. this array into a local file and when Kurviger starts again, check for the temporary file and ask “a started route was found, reload it YES/NO?” YES: reload and when pressing navigation button, guide to the next unvisited waypoint. NO: drop the temporary tour file.
ok, overview mode is useful functionality, but it was not the main reason for my post.
The main intention was a more fail safe handling of the strict navigation… the idea was more
avoiding the the stop of actual navigation by mistake,
avoiding the loss of already visited waypoints,
avoiding vexing navigation in strict navigation mode,
enabling voice guidance to return if driving into the wrong direction.
reloading the last tour including the already visited waypoints even after temporary closing of the app.
Normally a round trip is just used on the same day. The next day a temporarily stored local file could for example be automatically deleted when opening the Kurviger app.
I don’t know if this is technically possible to the greatest possible extent, it is just an idea.
Maybe I don’t understand this… this sounds to me like a contradiction or the definition for “off route” is not clear to me. When I drive into the opposite direction of my “on route” navigation, is this this considered to be off route? As soon as I am off the planned route there is no voice guidance any more? How can then ever a turning instruction occur?
Yes, I mean this just in connection with long-press navigation button, because cancelling a route unwillingly in a strict navigation has more negative side effects than you want to have.
In other situation I also don’t like these “are you sure” questions.
this was a typing or language problem. I mean return instructions. But as far as I understand your answer, even if I drive into the wrong direction of my planned route and am on the right street, but only in the wrong direction, I don’t get a voice instruction to return, right?
