Troubles & Questions / Re: Time at Arrival

Actually Google maps has a public API to provide a good estimate of travel time:
https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/distance-matrix/

You've only got to ask it for the answer

OK - thanks for the detailed answer.
I can see then, that for Locus, things haven't changed much since the issue was raised so long ago.
I had thought it might be addressed by now via a webservice or the like, since when I do this with my Garmin device or Google maps, I can start out on a 5hr trip and arrive within just a few minutes of the initially predicted time. I'm always so surprised as to how Google and Garmin get it right.
Seems like, with Locus I just need to focus on distance to target and do the math myself.

Troubles & Questions / Time at Arrival
« on: November 18, 2017, 08:05:31 »
I see questions from a long time ago (2013) on this but nothing much since. I notice that time to arrival for navigations are extremely underestimated. 500km is set to take 1hr 20m. 100km shows as 10mins away.
What do I have to do to get these estimates of arrival more realistic?
