GraphHopper navigation configuration option is confusing!
« on: September 04, 2018, 20:17:15 »
Hi,

Under settings -> Navigation -> Navigation data source , I have selected GraphHopper. In the configuration options for GraphHopper for car there is an option which seems to be quite confusing about what is actually does:

Checkbox: Avoid highways
Description: Avoid roads with limited access (highways)

For me this does not make sense. A highway is not a road limited access, infact, just the opposite! Could someone explain to me what this checkbox really means?

Many thanks,
KnightAzul

That refers to a limited access highway restricted to motor vehicles only, as in a motorway, freeway, turnpike, autoroute, autobahn, autostrada etc.

Hi,
Thanks for the information. Perhaps as a suggestion to make it more clearer it could be?

Checkbox: Avoid highways
Description: Avoid roads which are restricted to motor vehicles only (highways)

That's comprehensible enough but just same as limited access is for me.
If limited access is understood as exclusion of some vehicles then it's accurate, no need to change imo.

Hi,

For me as it currently stands:
Description: Avoid roads with limited access (highways)

This is not an option that I have normally seen in navigators, usually there is an option like "avoid unpaved roads and roads with limited access", which is similar text but means something different, hence my confusion.
