Quote from: "Khaytsus"Menion,I just got a chance finally to try TTS today.. Works pretty good, but a few suggestions... Since it's TTS, can you make it say "feet" to match the units shown? We're not limited to "yards" when using TTS like when using TomTom voices.Also, small bug.. if I choose a TomTom voice for example, it gives a small notification of the change worked and the voice menu closes. For TTS, it just gives the notification and the menu remains open, which made me think it didn't work, although it did.EDIT: One more thing I've noticed.. Stuttering, so to speak. Turn left in.. turn left.. turn left.. turn left in 30 yards. I dunno why it's doing it, as I'm just approaching a normal left turn at a normal speed, no funny left-left-left type of turn or anything.. I've seen it on several occasions, and I've noticed it happen on the stock PICO TTS as well as SVOX so I think Locus must be sending that data to it repeatedly or something?BTW, I am trialing SVOX as well. I had the British voice on (I'm a sucker for the female british accent ) but trying out the American voice today as well. Haven't tried any other languages, so so far SVOX 3 is working okay.
Quote from: "menion"hi, problem with distance is weird ... I'll tell you in basic, how my system works.new location comes from GPS, I then update location on map and start compute of new location on route. Locus compute nearest point projected on route and distance from this point to next cross. Lets say you ride 50km/h and you're now 510 metres to cross. I reduce distance to cross by one second of ride (to remove some GPS delay), so it's 460m and I'm then searching for closest text to say. Closest are 400 and 500m, so I take 500 in this case. Before I start search for text to say, I convert metres to yards if needed, so I just compute 460 * 1.09361 and search text for this. you say "Either way, could you make the TTS measurements and annoucements match the distance units" but as I wrote, I'm already taking "metres" and "yards" units, so this should work correctly
Quote from: "menion"fine, I added new settings into settings ... (screenshot) ... possible?so now, if feet/miles will be enabled and also TTS, distance will be said in feet ...also please check as you wrote more carefully wrong distances, I'll for sure test it. Maybe you can record during ride NMEA messages. Then I'll be able to play whole track as I sit next to you. So good for testing on some places ...
Quote from: "menion"and do you have correctly set units in settings? I did some changes there so they're maybe set incorrectly, just to feet
