Navigation - 'null description'
« on: September 18, 2018, 04:51:16 »
Hi,
I use BRouter because I am offline a lot. But even when I am on a main road, I often get a navigation failure with the error as an orange box with 'null description' and a number under it. I try over and over with no change. The nav fails to provide a route. If I move one some way and try again, it can work. Why do I get this error and how do I avoid it?

Alan, why don't you post a screenshot or at least write an error number?
What android device are you using (Android version)? Does it fail even if you compute route in Route planner?

OK I was finally able to grab a screen shot of a couple of attempts recently



You have to be fast and well timed to grab these shots because they disappear straight away.

Hello, interesting. This definitely is error message directly from BRouter and I have no idea what it means :).
Anyway, before contacting BRouter developer, I suggest to re-install BRouter application and mainly download new fresh routing data directly over BRouter app.
