    Today I made a trip on my motorbike and skipping waypoints works exactly the same as on my bycilce.

    1. tap the screen
    2. after a second the bottom menu appears
    3. tap on the 'Skip waypoint' button

    In total I skipped six waypoints on a 21/2 hour trip. and every time  the delay was the same: no more then one second. So this is again a positive result.

    I have used OsmAnd in the last period. At first it worked ok but the learning curve is steep and the last time I had many problems with recalculation after leaving the original track.
  • After my trip yesterday I discovered that mapfactor uses a lot of power. I noticed the red navigation triangle (render settings automatic) while navigating. I think this means that hardware rendering is used. Tomorrow I will try again with software rendering to see if this is more battery friendly.

  • Hi,
    Version 6.0.207
    - Bug Destination lane ; multi-lane road (blue panel information)
  • I was afraid that changing the rendering settings from hardware to software would have a negative effect on the behaviour of skipping waypoints (tapping screen, wait second, tap button in bottom menu). But it still works as it should.
  • 6.0.205: Thank you fror fixing the exit-bugs, exiting go now very much faster, thats very nice. (6.0.207 not yet tested)

    Off Topic: I never seen before that posts in this forum can be sorted by Date added..... :) (Discussion about missed postings which get a positive feedback.)
  • Hi,
    Navigator always shows FALSE Blue Panel on multi-lane roads !!
    I have reported this several times!
    Navigator uses the "destination" parameter for the name of the exit.
    While the parameter to use is "destination: lanes"
    I put 2 situations with Osm images and informations, but there are certainly everywhere in France and elsewhere.

    Link to the Osm information of the first image:

  • Hi,

    MacDony offers us professional reports about Navigator behavior, sometimes as now it's an imported bug in a navigation and reported for several months.

    If developpers don'care about that, I care myself about my trust in the guidance on such important crossroads.

    Please, have a look, I think the bug is well identified.
  • Is it possible to hide the blue panels??
  • Around this area in Vienna the parameter "destination:lanes" works as it should: 48.19123, 16.42037 (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/27268400).

    The difference is that none of the roads there have the "destination" parameter tagged. Maybe MFN uses the "destination:lanes" values only if it doesn't find a "destination" value which I think is not correct.

  • Hi JambaFee,

    Yes, I noticed too.
    But this is a mistake ....
    Functional coding should be, in my opinion:

    IF [destination] = True AND [destination:lanes] = True THEN
    Bluepanel = [destination:lanes]

    IF [destination] = True AND [destination:lanes] = False THEN
    Bluepanel = [destination]

    IF [destination] = False AND [destination:lanes] = True THEN
    Bluepanel = [destination:lanes]

    Finally, a coding of this kind, to test the possibilities, I do not know the language of the coding :)

  • @stepan and @tomas -

    V6.0.211 - Just bought the TT update that I have already purchased on the 20th of August 2020.
    It was showing that update is available and still showing it. I am already on the latest update.

    Can you arrange for the refund or do I need to email support.
  • Will do. 

    was V6.0.211 to fix this issue or something else. On mine under "Buy maps" still shows "available maps update".

    Also under "purchase products" i would expect to see all product purchases ie maps, traffic information etc... on mine only shows the "traffic" purchase

  • Hi,
    Are the bugs reported here being fixed or not?
    Some were flagged a long time ago and are not being fixed.
    I have other bugs to report and I am waiting for the last ones to be fixed.
    Good weekend to all
  • Would like to be able to see the waypoint names when I'm in navigation mode.
    Bottom of the screen shows name of the road or city, and the waypoint flags on the screen show nothing...

    Thank you !
