Quote from: Max on April 20, 2014, 12:08:21I want to use Locus for the same purpose as Christian: Downloading mountainbike gpx tracks and following them. I bought Locus because I was told Locus was able to turn on the display when there is a significant change in direction of the track. However... either there are no notifications at all, or it is beeping all the time.
Quote from: menion on May 02, 2014, 15:10:54maybe I finally got it. Simply say - you need to turn on Navigation on track, but this navigation won't say any texts, but will only notify by beep or vibrate, right? Son imagine you use new system of "Navigation generator", but instead of "Voice orders", you get only notifications. Rest remain same, like turn on screen etc. It's what you both talk about? Maybe I finally understand

Quote from: Joachim Buhl on May 04, 2014, 11:56:35Than I add an new route within Locus following the loaded GPX track. This is 20min additional work, but I get a clean track on the paths and I get turn instructions only when I need them.
Quote from: Joachim Buhl on May 04, 2014, 11:56:35Afterwards I'm starting navigation on this route. Automatic display off is working, the screen wakes up before turns, you get notification when you are off the track and with a feature of beeping you could choose between TTS and beeping.Right now you have also the opportunity to delete turn instructions single by single, for example for a piece of the tour which you really know well and where you do not need any instructions.I think for the "perfect" navigation for mountainbiking three things are missing right now:Short term:1. Beep notification instead of TTS2. Adding manual turn instructions, because sometimes Mapquest missed some. This could be done by introducing text to speech feature to points where I can note "turn right..." in a specific field.Long term:3. Automatic rerouting of a GPX file so I do not have to reroute it with Mapquest manually.Thanks

Quote from: Joachim Buhl on May 04, 2014, 11:56:35This leads me to the following scenario:If I want to follow a track with the mountainbike I choose openandromap with MTB theme in Locus.Than I add an new route within Locus following the loaded GPX track. This is 20min additional work, but I get a clean track on the paths and I get turn instructions only when I need them.
Quote from: Christian on June 22, 2014, 17:56:44After that heavy brainstorming and collection of ideas should i do a feature request for a "navigation generator light" with all the simple guiding features described above?What do you think folks?
