@Drabslab I read the stars and I believe you are scheduled to enter the Valhalla at age 127 😉
In all honestly, updating an app scheduled to be replaced to show "Lifetime" wasn't worth the effort. But don't worry! It actually is Lifetime so your great-great-grandchildren can continue using your account 🙂
Thank you for reassurign me that I will be able to use MRA for organising my very last trip as well, although it may require a map update beyond HERE and TomTom 🙂👼
D) For that maybe it is needed to up the arrow a bit, but if the street you are driving into is named on the map instead of in a very big blue area, probably not needed at all.
I disagree that the Bike Location Icon should be moved up.
As someone who is only ever going to use Portrait mode, I would want to see as much of the road ahead as possible, particularly when I’m on twisty country lanes, my preferred type of roads to travel on.
Being able to see the severity of the curves ahead allows for better forward planning which is always a good option to have IMO.
I should have added that the display modes could be user configurable so that, at the 1 minute TTG to an event, the display could switch to a map for the turn and then revert to the DTG navigation mode after the turn is complete. It defeats the display rational of minimum information at the right time but………
Also I envisage the graphical representation of the the turn in the TTG circle approaching a turn would be of much better quality than I have mocked up.
Looking at CoPilotGPS, it does a pretty good job of maintaining a minimalist display - presenting only relevant/necessary information...
The display is also dated. I haven't seen an update to their UI since the beginning. I'm just throwing it out there as an example of a different approach.
The two top buttons by the B arrow can be disabled/removed from the display, leaving only the zoom buttons. Same for the speed limit (arrow C). What's left is pretty basic.
The two fields marked by arrow A are user configurable. Currently they are showing distance and estimated time remaining to the next via (stop). This is generally my preferred configuration - an option not currently in MRA Navigation. Other options for these fields...
I should also note that those two fields are user selectable/configurable on the fly. You simply touch the field and the options display shown above pops up. It might be handy to be able to display ETA to final destination momentarily.
What MRA calls full screen lane guidance is a user selectable option. However, it's either on or off...
CoPilotGPS calls it ClearTurn. In addition to being able to turn it on/off, they give you configuration options on how it actually works...
I've got it set to 0.7/0.5 miles, which seems to work well. It pops up and grabs your attention, but doesn't persist long enough to get in the way.
MRA has an option to "Alert me when I'm speeding". It's either on or off. There's no option to turn speed limits off etc. CoPilotGPS on the other hand...
I'm not sure why I'd ever turn the speed limit display off. But maybe being able to set how many mph over before you get a warning might be useful.
Perhaps less useful, but mentioning anyway... CoPilotGPS will display "places"/POIs on the map. I'm not sure how handy that would be. But, what POIs categories get displayed is user selectable. IDK, gas stations or food might be handy. They can also be configured to display only when stopped. Maybe more useful is the "places"/POI alerts. These alerts are also user configurable. Perhaps getting alerted to nearby gas stations, restaurants or parking/rest stops for example may be handy.
Anyway... My main point is that I think maybe there should be room made for some user configurable fields. Especially the time/distance to the next via (stop) as shown by arrow A above.
De eerste Webinar staat gepland op volgende week donderdag 6 oktober om 20.00 uur in het Nederlands en 21.00 uur in het Engels (8:00 pm London time). De techniek werkt, microfoon kan volgende week wel uit bij de intro en outro, maar ook niet erg als je iemand hoort lachen op de achtergrond 😆. Hou je mail in de gaten voor de uitnodiging: https://youtu.be/QYIlrVtYmFc

@Russ-1, a non-paid membership is enough to share routes. Why does your wife need navigation on the back of the bike? And the auto-skip-waypoints works really well for me. But I am not too frantic about deviating from the route between 2 waypoints, knowing that I have enough waypoints to make the deviation really small.
@Steve-Lynch I can indeed confirm the accessibility features are ignored. During early testing of Mobile we discovered a lot of issues when allowing this so we now simply ignore it. By default the Mobile app uses a bigger font as that suits the app usage (slightly longer distance from your eyes as it’s mounted on a bike / car). If the accessibility feature would increase the font size even more, the screen became horrific.
When using the forum through the Mobile app, it uses the default web size font which might be a bit small.
