Suggestions for MRA Navigation
Here are my collected suggestions for MRA Navigation.
For all navigation users, who sometimes forget to start track recording: Insert a switch at "Record track" settings
- you set the switch to TRUE and it will always be recorded
- if you don't need a track recording, you can set the switch to FALSE and only start the recording in the app itself when needed
Play an MP3 file when approaching a waypoint.
Optional to the already existing possibilities of different colors and types of waypoints, optionally store an MP3 file.
This MP3 file will then be played N km before reaching the waypoint. The setting for the kilometers can be stored as default in the settings. Optionally you can store the kilometers at each waypoint.
In my opinion there is room for improvement in the navigation:
- the announcement that I am now following N kilometers of a road would not be relevant for navigation and could be optionally omitted.
- also the multiple announcement of an upcoming action could be optionally restricted.
In the left part of the display is the gas station symbol showing the distance to the next gas station. That is good.
Underneath is the red exclamation mark, also with a distance indication. Distances of more than 200 km can also be displayed here.
Is this useful? Wouldn't it be better to show a few kilometers ahead? Then perhaps even clearer (flashing?) and perhaps with optional acoustic support?
The display of e.g. the gas stations on the route could be even better perceived with slightly larger symbols...
