Hello Rookie and others,
one thing I like to say, track back is the much better than I ever hat. Thanks for the team that did it.
One thing I need for me and new users: Essential to have is please wait
, in the clock/date screen if you press the [OK] button, there you don’t know if you pressed the button hard enough when you came from the user pages. I pressed the [OK] button again after 3 sec and came out at the compass instead of map, and this happened more times. I loaded 83 km and the calculation takes much more time then the early versions, so it looks it is doing nothing while it is calculating and building the map.
1. Auto zoom worked very fine and smooth. But 1000m zoom is absolutely too wide for cycling. Now slower speed areas <5km/h and 5-10km/h there is about next 15-20 second (20-50m) visible on map which is quite ok. But if you ride 31km/h you see about next 2 minutes (1km) which mean that you can't recognize any details on route anymore. I propose that speed areas and zoom levels would be something like this.
< 5 km/h zoom 20 m
5-10 km/h zoom 50 m
10-20 km/h zoom 100 m
20-40 km/h zoom 200 m
40-60 km/h zoom 500 m
> 60 km/h zoom 1000 m
I like the zoom as it is now, but for me above 30 km it could stay on 500m I agree with that. Like Phil in another tread, I like to have control to zoom, maybe every time you hold the up or down button longer than 3 sec it go's one scale up or down.
2. Triangle ponter was much better than old, but it would be better if it is bigger. Also pointer location (your current location) should be lower on map. Now pointer is middle of map and you see as much past and comming route. Past route is not interested on tarckback function, so past route not need be there visible so much.
I agree, did asked this a long time ago.
4. Trackpoints should be more. Now in quite straight part of routes next trackpoint could be 1, 2 or more kilometers ahead and actual route turn little by little and finally you can be very far from route which is showed on map. When route will be created there must be also check after eg. every 200m if there is turned x degrees in last 200m. I think that there is currently check if you are turned in shorter distance, but this not work if you turn little by little during longer distance, right?
Yes you right, but there only 200 points now, so better to have them on really important points than trying to be 100% on the original track. Specially if the track is > 90 km you need all 200 to be sure you don't miss junctions due to to less points.
I did not try [no auto jump], but I did made a short cut and, like before, I manually pressed the up button until the distance go's from more to low and after this to more again. this way you know the point is in front of you.
