Navigate to next Waypoint

When I go off route the app tries to get route me in circles to the place where I left the route. It also shows two routes when this occurs one for the onward route and another to route back but the instructions are always to go back. It would be very useful if it either just automatically navigated to the next way point or there was a function to tell it to do this or it just carried on with the route once you were back in the planned route.

Thanks Andy,

Very informative.

Hopefully that will come to iOS soon or i may have to ditch the 3 Year old 6Plus for the S9 :-)


That’s a half way house feature currently not even available on iOS. But largely irrelevant as this thread is a feature request to navigate to the next onward waypoint. The screenshots depict a human decision making process and assumes you know where you are and where you want to go. But you don’t and that’s why we rely on Sat Nav!!!

I also think that the function should be automated, I stopped 3 times to day to use the skip button. It was extremely annoying  continuously being told to turn left or right in order to route back to a missed way-point, when I could see the correct route on the screen in front of me. Some times on busy roads it's difficult to find a place to stop to carry out the skipping, and all the time I have to put up with verbal instructions that are of no practical use. Please Please do something about this as it's obvious from all the other post that it's a globally recognised problem. 

Hi Andy, 

I’m on iOS v1.0.10 too - which appears to be the latest version - and I can’t find any way to get the App to show anything like the display you have posted.  I still get the same 'skip' window we have always had.  

I suggested last year that giving us the option to skip a number of waypoints without displaying a list of them was asking a lot of users who have plotted many waypoints on a route.  I also suggested that the Navigation app surely  knows where the rider is, so offering the option to skip waypoints that had been already passed was confusing and redundant. 


Perhaps MRA could let us know when this feature will be available to iOS users.....?

Hi Andrew,


I'm using a Galaxy S7 which is Android and when I posted my original message I hadn't realised that there was such a difference in the app between different platforms.  I'm sure though (on Android) that when a list of waypoints is displayed, it does not include the ones that you have already passed.


Cheers,

Andy

Can you comment please support !!

Hi Clive, 


I've been looking back through the earlier posts on this subject which was originally flagged up over a year ago and it seems that they have been either removed or archived.  I can find no reference to them now although there was an extensive discussion titled ‘Automatically skip waypoint’.  Many opinions and good suggestions were included in that discussion which, sadly I don’t have a copy of.  Searching for that topic on the Community Forum now produces no match. 


 

Perhaps Support put could let us know as a matter of urgency why there is such a glaring discrepancy between the two platforms and if there is ongoing development work on this feature.

Well said. iOS is hardly a minor player. Just an update on progress is all that is needed. How can this feature request be so difficult? At present the app performance is hugely impacted by this omission.

Found a workaround to this but it involves stopping and it's frustrating that it isn't built in as standard functionality.


Come on Support ! Can you at least comment on the issue.


If you have missed a bit of a route and the Navigation app is trying to take you back to complete the missed section when all you want is to do continue onwards with the route, then stop and exit the navigation; come out completely of the route to your list of routes (don't just go back to the route overview); reselect the route but before starting it edit the route settings to take off the "navigate from start" option. The Navigation app will then navigate to the nearest part of the route and continue from there or if you have already found your way back to route it will continue from where you are.


This is exactly the functionality I was expecting the app to do automatically without having to manually workaround it. What do you think support ??

Clive, your suggestion above is an excellent workaround & I feel the MRA Navigation should do automatically. Thanks for the post. Now support will you please listen & help with some changes in skipping waypoints. Thanks in advance.
