The Great Suggestion List



  • Nice to find myself in the list 😉
    The actual suggestion was to "search routes based on X-distance form destantion an originating Y-distance from desired starting point" But I will forgive about the shortened version 😉

    May I deposit another one here, for Navigation?

    • Expand the on-screen information with current-time, direction or compass, Height, en maybe more. It could be placed on either side of a landscape navigation screen, since more map than really needed is shown when using landscape. Maybe even move speed etc to the same location.

    And for MRA?

    • Since we have the heightprofile information, it could be used for a "caravan & camper" function. As opposite to the curvy road functions, Caravan and Camper drivers could benefit from leaving out slopes beyond a certain parameter.

    Idea and suggestion from @Martin-Cooke: Is it possible to do a search in MRA by grid reference? A created waypoint's info contains the grid reference, surely that must be possible?



  • MRA Navigation Suggestion:
    Add a button for change from "guidance view" (Standard MRA navigation view) to "map view" too see where i am in the track.
    Alternatively a zoom +/- could be a good solution.

    Doing always a pinch-to-zoom is complicated. You have to stop the ride and take off the gloves.



  • Vandaag even wat routes 'geoptimaliseerd'. Twee dingen waar ik tegenaan liep. Ik moest een grote route met een stuk of 80 routepunten nalopen (puntjes op de weg zetten en niet op kruispunten bijvoorbeeld). Als je dan een routepunt aanklikt krijg je het popupje met de opties .

    Nadat je het routepunt even iets verschoven hebt, herberekent MRA de route. Daarna is gelijk het popupje weg. Als je dus naar het volgende routepunt wilt klikken met de pijltjes, moet je eerst weer het routepunt aanklikken en dan pas op het pijltje. Als dat popupje nu niet verdwijnt, maar blijft staan gaat dat sneller (scheelt een klik) en scheelt ook de kans op een misklik (en dat er dan een routepunt wordt toegevoegd). Een optie om te kiezen voor het laten staan van het popupje zou wel een welkome aanvulling zijn.

    Dit brengt me op het volgende punt. Als je misklikt en er een routepunt wordt toegevoegd, komt daar rechtsonder in je scherm een bevestiging van

    echter staat die bevestiging precies boven op de 'ongedaan maak button' (de oh-shit knop volgens Serge).

    Is het een idee om die bevestiging linksonder in het scherm te plaatsen, daar staat ie niets in de weg. Dit maakt het corrigeren van een misklik sneller, want je hoeft niet 3 seconden te wachten met ongedaan maken.

    Het zou in mijn ogen de gebruiksvriendelijkheid ten goede komen en lijken me beide geen hele zware aanpassingen.



  • @Wytze Inderdaad kleinigheden maar lijken me wel belangrijk qua gebruiksvriendelijkheid


  • RouteXperts

    @Wytze U kunt ervoor kiezen om op een routepunt in de lijst te klikken. Dit bespaart 1 klik en 1,25 seconden 😉

    Attention all, please try to use English as much as possible and stay on the subject.



  • i've got a great one. woudn't it be great if i can pick up my phone, Open de Myroute app and send any route to my Navigation system wireless.

    the functionality is already in a lot of systems.

    Currently i can send or receive from my BMW navigator to any Garmin /bmw device any route or track.
    but it is not possible trough my phone.

    You only have to trich the system by leting hem think the Phone is another Nav device.

    from there i can get any route i want from the app, and drive for ever!!!


  • RouteXperts

    @Arjan-Olsthoorn I can send routes from my MRA library to my TomTom 500 using my phone. And I know that you can do the same with the new Garmin XT.

    To add to myself (all for Navigation):

    • it would be excellent to have the "next turn" indicator at the top left show the next waypoint number to which you are navigating too. That keeps track of route progress, and in case of reboots, recalculations (often start at the beginning again) it gives a better idea of to which waypoint to skip (seems an easy one!)
    • in addition to the above, it would be great if a single tap on the map would show a 2d overview of the route, and your location in it. That is much easier to zoom into areas that on the standard 3d naviagtion map. It seems odd to have to quit navigation in order to see an overview of the route.
    • If there is a need to skip waypoints, it is a real PITA to have to scroll through the waypoints one by one. Why not make the waypoint selectable on the map? It is already clickable, just the button "select this waypoint to skip to" is missing. I can't imagine that to be a difficult change, but if so, a dropbox in which you can select a waypoint would already be a lot of progress. Besides: pressing "close" on a selected waypoint in that view takes you out of the "skip to" function, instead of just out of the selected waypoint details. Probably a bug.
    • make the "start navigation from" options a system default option. At the moment of writing it is implemented as a routing-option, and it defaults to "start of the route" each time a route loads. That can't be meant like that 😉

    Most of these additions come from some frustration because of the fact that while navigating it frequently starts recalculating (sometimes while taking a wrong turn, sometimes spontaneously) and in some of those cases it start at the beginning of the route instead of the closest waypoint (ahead!). I am not sure why, but I think it has to do with the fact that where normally the remaining time and kilometers are shown, a text shows "calculating" instead for very long and very often. The navigation runs with no problems at that point. I did not have a chance to test, but I think having the system in off-line mode helps against that.
