Navigation - leaving and rejoining a route

Ricyro shared this question 4 months ago

Hi

I am not sure if I have a setting wrong.

I would like the option to deliberately leave a route I am navigating along and then rejoin it further along. When I leave the route I don't want the route to recalculate. When I rejoin the route I want locus to recognise I am back on the route and continue with the navigation.

Currently when I leave the route I get the error alter. However when I rejoin the route I still get the error alerts. I then have to stop navigating and start it again.

Thanks

Rich

Hello Rich,

If you do not want to receive out of route notification - go to

Menu> Settings> Navigation and turn off Route Recalculation and Out of route notifications.

That should solve your problem.

Have a nice day

Hi Andrea

No sorry I want the out of route notification and have this set up ok.

What I want is for Locus to know when I am back on route. At the moment when I rejoin a route locus isn't aware that i am back on it.

Hi Rich,

these are my settings with which Locus knows that I'm back on track:

- go to Locus settings > navigation > route recalculation > set no recalculation

- Locus settings > navigation > advanced settings > maximum deviation from the route > set as you need, I use 30 m

- Locus settings > navigation > advanced settings > snap to route - YES

Hi Michal

Thanks for your help and settings.

I had been using the same as you but with a different deviation. Maybe the problem is a quirk with my phone.

To locus support:

should locus know that I am back on route after missing out a section, ie once you start navigating a route (with strict route following on) does it have to follow each point in the line in order. So if you miss one point locus wont know that you are back on course even though you are?

Hi Rich,

the "strict following" is suitable only for specific situations, not for a normal hike/bike trip. When the "strict" is on, the app navigates you from one routepoint to another and when you miss one, it guides you to it until you go through it - the route doesn't matter.

OK thanks, I think I'll have to experiment without the strict route following.

When I'm on my bike I use the aeroplex headphones to get voice commands and leave phone in pocket. It generally works very well. Howevever there are some cases in which I will deliberately leave the route eg to do an alternative stretch depending on how I'm feeling. I therefore don't need to be guided back on the route where locus think I need to (ie to the nearest point) as I may rejoin the route a few miles along. I like it that I can get an off route sound as confirmation that I'm off route but then get the voice commands back when back on route (ie as I am not looking at map which is in my pocket)

"experiment without the strict route following"

- yes please, do so - and it won't be an experiment, it'll be a normal use

"...get the voice commands back when back on route"

- Locus Map works like this. Nevertheless, it doesn't directly announce that you are back on track. It just stops the off-route alert and goes on with navigation commands.

Thanks.

What setting do you think I would be best using in the 'Route re-calculation'?

No recalculation

Point priority

Route priority

As I understand your use-case ("When I leave the route I don't want the route to recalculate.") I would prefer "no recalculation".

Thanks Michal
