Agree what about lifetime Gold members.
Google’s Android Auto platform continues to expand with more apps, supported hardware, and even its native version arriving on other cars. Today, Google is announcing new changes to apps on Android Auto which, finally, opens the door to more navigation apps on the platform.
Since its launch, Android Auto has supported Google Maps, but over the years has only opened up to one other, the Google-owned Waze. This satisfies most users, but understandably it’s frustrating for some and also prevents choice. Now, Google has opened up the floodgates.
In early access for the time being, Google is allowing more navigation apps to work with Android Auto. This starts with partners such as TomTom, MapFactor, and others. Along with more navigation apps, Google is also allowing new apps for parking and electric vehicle charging. SpotHero, for example, is another early access partner for these new categories.
Today, we’re showcasing our work with early access partners to build apps in new categories for Android Auto, including navigation, parking and electric vehicle charging. Using our new Android for Cars App Library, we’re able to ensure that all tasks within an app can be achieved with minimal glances or taps.
I agree. This is common even in Basecamp. You can easily change between a "shaping point" which does NOT announce and a "waypoint" which does announce. But you have to go through the waypoint or it will keep trying to re-route you BACK to that waypoint that the system thinks you missed, where the shaping point lets just blow by and on to the next.
In my VERY LIMITED experience with MRA we create "shaping points" in Garmin parlance.
I've been riding motorcycles for years. As many, I thought the idea of using a GPS would be a great way to get where I wanted to go the way I wanted to get there. After using Basecamp, creating my desired route and loading it into my Garmin GPS I found that the route was NOTHING like I had planned. I tried different GPS usints and then really studied and learned Basecamp... Still being frustrated I turned to the "Google machine" where I found the MyRouteApp. I HATE subscriptions for anything, but I decided to enable the 14 day trial.
I watched many of the Webinars, experimented with the features, and imported my routes and tracks from Basecamp and started learning MRA. I was/am so impressed by the program, I purchased a 3 year subscription.
