Receiving turn instructions while recording

Beitragvon paul » Fr 16. Aug 2013, 14:45

Hi people :)
I was wondering if it is possible to receive (audio) turn instructions for a loaded track?
If that is possible, is it also possible to (at the same time) record the gpx of the route you're actually taking in response to the turn instructions?

I would like to use this to measure my biking performance etc.

Thanks for the great program by the way!

Cheers,
Paul

Turn instructions are not supported yet, but this feature is on the ToDo-list. GPSies.com had a blog-entry some weeks ago, that they plan to include turn instructions in the tracks.
If this feature is implemented, it will be possible to navigate by a track/route with turn instructions and record your own track at the same time for later comparison.

If you find a source for tracks with prebuild turn instructions, this features will be implemented soon (+1 month). Otherwise it will take me longer (+6-8 month), because I need the underlying vector data of the ways, which is planned for autumn.

thanks for the quick response!
I can find (or create) tracks with turn instructions, so I'll look forward to the update that supports that!
cheers, paul

This feature is now on top of the to-do-list and will be implemented within the next 2 month... 8-)
