Crossing routes & incorrect navigation

Stefan Stefan shared this problem 2 weeks ago
In Progress

When the route crosses the way backwards, it automatically navigates me back and leaves the remainder of the route. Even though I try to go further along the original route, it still brings me back. I've also tried to prioritize the route. Any idea how to set it to work properly?

Good day Stefan,

may you please send me here exported GPX track of your route for test?

This, of course, should not happen and Locus itself tries to keep navigation along the route in direction of your current movement. So the only explanation for me is that crossing is in very sharp angle and the direction of movement is similar for both directions. Locus then probably choose the shorter path to your destination.

An alternative solution should be to enable "Strict route following" option in advanced settings of navigation that onthe second side force you to always move along the whole route (until manually tap on "nearest point" in navigation menu).

Hello,

thank you for your answer.

I attached the gpx track, you can test ist.

I tried to change also settings like automatic recalculation according to the route, then according to the points, I changed shaping point to the via point and I tried also "strict route following". The only difference was when I switched off automatic recalculation of the route - after that the route was marked on the map from the beginning but again navigation led me to the nearest point of the route.


On the route I attached, there are parts of the route which are crossing. I tried another route where I was somewhere close in the middle of the route (not exactly on the route). Route was straight. I tried to change settings again like I wrote above but still app navigated mi to the nearest point in the middle, which was not the start of the route. The problem is that I am not able to set the navigation to navigate me exactly through the shaping/via points as I planned.

Good day Stefan,

thanks for shared route. I tried to simulate your issue on the coach (by disabled GPS in Locus and then moving with map center along route), but unfortunately no success so far. App still navigates me correctly in expected direction without switching to opposite direction.

For me is hard to say where exactly is the problem, because best should be to see it on own device with ability to repeat issue at home as well.

Anyway, suggestions: Locus starts to navigate from trackpoint, where you tapped on route on the map and choose "Navigate". When navigation is already running, in navigation menu (tap on next navigation order in top left corner), there is an option "Nearest point", so try it. It may solve navigation problem in case, Locus detect your direction incorrectly and starts to navigate in opposite direction then you ride. I!ll try to keep my eyes open and try to do some circles with crosses to test. Thanks

Hi Menion,


I tried it again. Here are screenshots. I used indoor GPS simulation.

I planned a route, which started far from my position and led near to my actual position. I wanted from the navigation to navigate me along the whole planned route from the start, but navigation led me to the nearest point from my position.

Thanks for screenshots. It more looks like that

  1. you start navigation along planner route
  2. Locus did a recalculation from your current position to target

Because if step 2 does not happen, it should look like this (part of track already passed is with the lighter color). Also, on your screen is the visible small 50m long route from your simulated position = recalculated track.

I think that what happen to you is absolutely correct!

You may change this:

- disable recalculation. This will result in same what you may see on my first screenshot

- enable "Strict route following" which will try to force you to ride over all track points along the route without skipping or some shortcuts

Anyway, the start of the route is always a problem and usually best, in this case, is to use navigation twice ... first to get to the place on your planned route where you wants to start and second on the route itself.

---

Your original problem was that Locus made a shortcut to the final point. This "strict route following" may help here.

I'm just going on few days on bike tomorrow, so I'll be watching this and try to simulate in the field as well.

Thanks for your answer. I will to try it on bike.
