re config.cfg - also beware - don't bother adding your own comments after the hash# character, as these will be deleted next time config.cfg is written

And also note from me  :)

I want to get rid of this config.cfg. Settings from this file are slowly moving to inner "Expert settings" (long click on the main menu). So in case, some settings will be missing since a certain version in the config, firstly check expert settings ... many settings were already moved.

With a choice of time (in seconds) but certainly also the more simple select distance in meters.
Time default is 15|35|300 sec or Distance default 75|175|1500 meters
Selection in meters has the great advantage: Simplicity and clarity.

So I've just updated this system and in the next version, the screen on/off should work also in case, no voice is selected, thanks.


Any idea when this will be integrated so I can download it?

@0709 - I currently have "navigation_announcements_times=30|180|600" - are you saying the values can be "sec" or "meters"? What is the full syntax? The keyword "..._times" implies these values are "sec" not "meters". This is certainly one hidden gem setting that would be good to migrate to UI expert settings.

@ Andrew.
No Sir, only actually is by the time notation. (Newbies hardly understand the used method at first use)
The  very simple to understand method by distance set in meter a nice to have ......

@0709 - ok, thanks for clarifying. yes, this could be a good enhancement - help topic?

@Menion - to me, maybe @0709 too? the distance to the next navigation announcement makes more sense than time. Each could have advantages in different scenarios though. I generally find the shortest time in the setting (eg. 30|180|300) is somewhat unreliable, but the most crucial. The actual 30s announcement is anywhere between only 10s to 30s before the turn, as this is often when speed is slowing down, so I often have to turn on display manually anyway. Maybe a fixed distance setting here would be more predictable?

vote for this suggestion from 3 years ago too - https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/transfer-function-in-config-cfg-to-gui-navigation-expert-setting
