  • Poll: Does the route list need magnification?

    Imagine this Route Window layout with the white part transparent just like the GPS Info window. Is this good as is, or should it be zoomed to a larger size in a future version? Any other comments on the default skin?

    It should be zoomed in only when it is visible. Otherwise it takes up way too much space.

      My picture above is un-zoomed. I want to make all its white transparent. Then it won't look like it is taking up much space. Plus when there is no route entered, it is all white and therefore fully transparent. You can also toggle it on/off through the right-side's Window menu...

      The left-side menu is always the same and the top button tabs-through all of the right-side menus (Bookmarks, Routes, Destinations, Windows, and Options so far).

      Bookmarks (above): Favorites / Save Location / POI / Recent Destinations
      Routes: Major/Local/Quickest/Shortest
      Destinations: Address Street/City / Intersection Street/City
      Windows: GPS Info / RouteList / Guidance Mode / Volume
      Options: Route Options / Display Opyions / Speed-Alert / Fog-Driving

          ? So you only want the next turn shown. I kinda liked having 5-turns. Once it's transparent I don't think it will be "in-the-way".

            I've only looked at the route list when just to review the path that iGuidance chose (like if there is a street I want to avoid). For info to glance at when I'm driving, I've magnified the distance box on the top left (by the turn picture). To me, that's all I need when I'm driving. I don't think the route list needs to be magnified.

              What if you showed it for a second when you set a new route, then after 5 or 10 seconds it fades out?

                  Next turn would be on the street at the top, and the direction of the arrow, making the box unnecessary

                    Perhaps the ability to show it like you had it in the first mock up, with a button, and it auto fades after 20 seconds or something. SOMETIMES, I like to see a list of where I will be turning. Espcecially when I am driving through really tight streets with lots of turn. But, leaving it on all the time I think is just too much.

                    Or perhaps, since the next turn arrow and street name will be up top, the ability to toggle on the second street name, with auto fade, would be good.

                      Do you guys usually have a destination entered? I usually just use my GPS as a map for short-cuts and freeway ramps. I usually don't enter a destination unless I am going to some place for the first time ever (which is rare). The voice gets annoying and it usually doesn't take the exact route I do which is also a bit annoying (I like to play-it-by-ear in response to traffic).

                      With the transparent one there, if you do not have a destination then it will be all-white and therefore all-transparent. You can toggle it on/off manually using the skin-buttons, plus if you have no destination it is automatically "off".

                        I usually drive with a destination set and the sound off. Except when going to work or school. But I do go to alot of places ive never been before.

                            Looking sweet.

                            Magnifcation always helps.

                            It makes mine look bigger

                              I'm having some trouble with re-sizing the form and positioning layered windows in CF . It looks damn pretty when run by itself though:
