LAUNCH: Major Navigation revamp



  • @Kudee nope. One single phone only. My daily phone is used on my motorcycle as well.



  • @Kudee said in LAUNCH: Major Navigation revamp:

    @StefanHummelink So one mobile for daily use, photos, Whatsup , etc. and another mobile for navigation? Most travel sim providers do not allow thethering. If the travel Destination is special I take my Lumix with me, but a China cell phone with an crappy camera doesn't make me happy.

    I use 2 phones. But on my Adv bike I have a phone and a tablet.

    The phone or tablet used for navigation doesn't need cell service at all. I am offline most of the time.



  • @StefanHummelink Every mobile phone with optical image stabilizer has the vibration problem. With Apple Prison and NSA already build in you have the wrong operating system anyway 🙂 Sorry, I don't like Apple 🙂



  • @Kudee Yep, entirely true, but the first issues were reported from iPhone devices. Haha. I'm a fandroid guy so hate towards Apple is in place for me as well haha. Yet, after hearing about the issues I bought the damper as soon as it became available.





  • @Kudee Yes, I use the combination of items shown below.

  • It is unclear from the information I have received on the new version 2.0 whether existing 1.x.x subscriptions will get the upgrade or whether it will be a completely new product, in which case what happens to my Navigation subscription which runs until Sept 2023?


  • administrator

    @Frederick-Briggs-0 Dear Frederick, your current Navigation subscription will receive the upgrade free of charge.



  • Does current version will be upgraded to 2.0?

    Does current version will be upgraded to 2.0?

    You want to know whether there wille be a seperate v2 app, and if they can be used next to eachother?
    Good question!



  • @Con-Hennekens

    Excately.

    I have bought a 3 year subscription for current version and I do not want to "stuck" with it 🙂
    So if ver. 2.0 will be a separate app I would like to upgrade 1.6.6 to 2.0.
    For current users upgrade will be free? Or have to pay for upgrade?

    No, Timo mentioned above already that all subscriptions will get the upgrade

    So if ver. 2.0 will be a separate app I would like to upgrade 1.6.6 to 2.0.
    For current users upgrade will be free? Or have to pay for upgrade?

    I think the questions is more like if your 1.6.6 app will be auto-upgraded to 2.0. I can imagine that not everyone is wishing to be upgraded to this very different new version without having tried it beforehand. So yes, hopefully it will be a seperate App in the appstore. But I am quite sure your license will be coupled to the same account you are using already.

    I understand the confusion.

    There will be no seperate app. If you have Navigation, you'll have Navigation 2.0



  • @Timo-Martosatiman-MRA I come from an old ZĂĽmo 595 to MRA. Was always Garmin enthusiastic but a cell phone and a SIM card can do much more than the Garmin. After all the disastrous reports about the Garmin XT I decided to drive only with cell phone. I have tried all apps through, each has its problems and I actually want to travel and not read me for hours in forums around problem solutions. MRA is relatively easy for me, although I also miss that the development is just too slow. Thousands of users who have a subscription, that would have to come together a shit lot of money to drive the development forward. Since I know a bit about outsotrcing, I don't understand why there isn't much more action. So far I have only driven on the road, can not make any statements regarding offroad. For me, the MRA app is already even offline better than my old Garmin. In September it goes to the east of Europe, 6 countries, many routes offroad. Since I am not yet convinced I will probably take my old 595 loaded with OSM as Backup. Unfortunately

  • In fairness to the Garmin XT, all the issues are resolved as far as I can see.
    I use the Trip Planner exclusively now, I can go off the route and it will take me back to the next shaping point.
    I have no need to “Display” the Track on the map to get me back on my route.
    I never use Via points and I make a point of putting at least 1 shaping point on every single road I want to travel on, no matter how long the route is.
    MRA assigned a developer specifically to look at the XT and both they and Garmin (Garmin Drive App) fixed it pretty rapidly.



  • @Timo-Martosatiman-MRA said in LAUNCH: Major Navigation revamp:

    There will be no seperate app. If you have Navigation, you'll have Navigation 2.0

    In that case I really hope everyone will see it as improvement, and no nasty bugs will show up.

    @Kudee Thank you for the positive feedback. We're crunching down on getting our RoadMap item 1.2. launched on the 5th of july, which sadly means resolving a lot of longstanding subscription and payment managment issues. From that point forward we'll be blasting forward with great new features that will be announced shortly. We'll revise the Roadmap a bit to make sure more useful features for the community will be released in a shorter timespan.

    @Steve-Lynch thanks for recognizing that.

    @Con-Hennekens while new nasty bugs can never be avoided, if they pop up they are now more manageble than before because of our new development process. There's a BETA testing panel that has access to newer, possibly more unstable, versions as well as almost daily updates.
