I have noticed some issues recently when using MRA Navigation -
Missed ‘shaping’ waypoints are not automatically skipped until you are over half way to the next. On a straightforward road there can (should) be quite a large distance between waypoints, so that for example waypoints spaced say 10mls apart Navigation will keep trying to route back for 5+ miles. I have tried this out and it is too great a distance to travel, during which the app is constantly recalculating and re-routing and you are effectively lost. I am not sure what the optimum distance limit before skipping should be, but perhaps 1 mile? Previous versions dealt with skips much better.
Of course you can skip waypoints manually, using the submenu, but you first have to enter the number of skips via a keyboard, then press ok. Very difficult to do with gloves on and dangerous whilst riding. Previous Navigation versions had a single button to skip one point, which was better and made it possible to do on the move. If more skips were required press again - simple! Even better if the skip button were on the main screen. Incidentally, I don’t think the other functions on the submenu, (route & navigation preferences, save location etc) are essential whilst navigating as these are set in the main menu before loading the route.
A small issue, but I am fairly sure Navigation previously used to display distance to petrol stations. This was useful. Has this been dropped?
I try not to be negative about Navigation and I use it for navigation on my motorbike almost all the time. It is a good app but the recent ‘skipping’ issues are making it more difficult to use than previously, rather than better.
Has anyone else noticed these problems?
I have version Navigation v1.0.30 on an iPhone 7.
