GPS TwoNav: New map window interactivity

TwoNav 4.7 includes this new feature that’s sure to be a hit. See what changes we’ve made and why.  

 

In order to maximize the map view, TwoNav 4.7 will only display the essential elements in each phase of navigation. Let’s take a look at the changes in detail:

 

No Navigation mode

By default, the map window shows the ‘No navigation’ mode, which provides an overview of your outing. In it, you can start an activity, see the route on the map, find out the status of the TwoNav application and access the main menu. The ‘No navigation’ mode contains several areas:

Status bar
‘Recenter’ button
Scale
Navigation bar

Press anywhere on the map to show more features. Press anywhere on the map again to hide these elements:

Toolbar
Full screen
‘Zoom+’ and ‘Zoom-‘ buttons

Navigation mode

Once the destination is selected, navigation will begin and with it, the map window will change to ‘Navigation’ mode. In addition to seeing the route on the map, this mode lets you monitor your activity with real-time data, as well as pause, stop or choose another destination at any time. ‘Navigation’ mode has several areas:

‘Recenter’ button
Scale
Navigation bar

Press anywhere on the map to show more features. Press anywhere on the map again to hide these elements:

Status bar
Toolbar
‘Zoom+’ and ‘ Zoom-‘ buttons
Full screen
Navigation bar

 

IMPORTANT: By default, when the navigation starts, the status bar disappears from the top. If you want to see the status bar permanently while navigating, activate the option ‘Main menu > Settings > Activity profiles > Map view > Status bar in activity’.

Pin mode

The selected position will be marked on the map, a window displaying information related to that point will appear at the upper side of the application. Press elsewhere on the map and the information featured in the upper window will be adapted to the new position.

GPS TwoNav: New data fields

Do you hike or do downhill mountain biking? If so, update your TwoNav GPS to version 4.7 and add the new Ascent and Descent fields to your data pages. Measure the total climbs and descents more accurately.

 

We recently added more data fields to TwoNav version 4.7 so you can customize your pages with information that’s useful to you:

– Ascent to next: Ascent to the next waypoint on your route.

– Descent to next: Descent to the next waypoint on your route.

– Descent to destination: Descent to the destination.

 

These three data fields are in addition to another field already present in previous versions:

– Ascent to destination:Ascent to the destination.

 

Remember that you can change any data in the Data Bar (or in a Data Pages) by long pressing on the field and pressing ‘Change this field’. Customize the data pages with the information you really need during your activity.

We at TwoNav would like to congratulate the brave participants in this unique and unprecedented challenge. Thank you for trusting TwoNav and accepting our proposal to cross the Pyrenees with only the Trail 2 as your guide. If there’s one thing the Trail2Challenge has shown us it’s the enormous potential of Trail 2, which was vital for the hikers and cyclists to find one another. The participants tested the device and can attest to its great versatility and reliability.

Well done, champs!

The challenge doesn’t boil down to physical exercise and trying out the latest technological advances. The environmental factor is key to turning this adventure in the Pyrenees into an unforgettable experience.
