Direction Indicator for MM & FD
How may people are using the direction indicators for navigation. I have it added to the menu skin of Zots. I also have the RR labels for nextturn, direction, and distance.
The labels only update when the skin is on top, i.e., if I have the radio player skin on screen when MM announces the next turn or when I execute a turn and go back to the main menu none of the above gets updated. When I do time it so MM updates the info on the main menu, the direction indicator doesn't show the next turn but the one after that. - HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? And for the rest of the trip the labels tell me the next turn and the indicator updates to the turn after that.
On long trips, I still have to flip back and forth from the main to the GPS to see how far I have to go for the next turn when the turns are more than 2 miles apart. This is because the labels and indicators don't update until MM sends the two mile warning. I eventually end up restarting the nav so the labels read N/A cause thats better than looking at the 200 yard warning for the last turn I made 100 miles ago and with 60 miles till my next turn.
One of the things I liked about Street Atlas was it would give three warnings for a turn and then immediately after the turn was executed it would announce the time and distance to the next turn even if it was 400 miles away. But its so touch screen unfriendly I gave it up.
How do I refresh these labels (kinda like updating the weather screen) and what happened to my direction indicator?
