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

‘Pin’ mode works the same as in previous versions. Do a long press on any part of the map to access the ‘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.

Press ‘Close’ to close ‘Pin’ mode.
