Hello John, Today I was trying navigation instruction, and the DMD2 suggest me a road, i take a different one, and DMD try to recalculate, but after few second stop the navigation and it remain only the map. I will try again in order to understand if was an isolated case or if it happened in same specific case. QUESTION If you have a GPX loaded you have 2 options: Navigate to START or to END, are you working also in the option to NAVIGATE following the GPX without any calculation? An in case you go out of the track recalculation must bring you back to the track. I`m organizing a trip up to Nordkap and I have created GPX for all the different Days… would be great to have the turn-by-turn indication in order to follow the track we have decide the take. Just follow the line on the MAP, if you are on normal road following a long trip (300-500 Km) could be difficult if you have lots of direction change. Thanks

Hello, when you get away from the calculated route the app will re-calculate, BUT, in case you are off-road or on a place where there cannot be a calculation to it will fail. The rules are, if you are doing any off-road, select the “MIXED” profile, which can indeed route to any offroad track on map, the issue here is that there is a bug which will be fixed today, where the mixed profile re-calculation is indeed broken!

To be honest, I can already allow you to do a one click convert GPX to Navigation, and the calculator will take all the GPX points and make a calculated route with it. I just want to test it a bit more.

For off-road I have been working on something that I really want, which is not a pre-calculation but instead its more of a real time “look-ahead-analyser” which will look at the track points ahead of you and return user readable information, like “In 500m easy right”. Im more interested in being able to return user readable information which is usually not returned on regular nav planners, take for example an “S” shaped section, I want it to return exactly that “S section in 200m” or when you have an easy left and then a sharp right I want a red warning “Caution Easy Left to Sharp Right” obviously with icons that allow a quick glance and understand what it is, plus I want the analyser to take in consideration ground type and elevation to also return stuff like “Big Descend” or “Big Climb” or even “Hard Terrain / Possible Sand”, stuff like that.
