Android :: Google Navigation With Multiple Destinations / Custom Route

I was wondering how people navigate with multiple destinations. It seems that Google Navigation doesn't nativity support it. Ultimately, I want to take a route different than the default quickest route to avoid an intersection, and on other GPS's, I would add the detour as a way-point. If this feature isn't available, has anybody found a workaround?

Android :: Google Navigation Route
I made the switch to Google Navigation after using Sprint's Navigation application for a few years on my previous BlackBerry and love it! It's my primary GPS application. So, here's my query. While I was tinkering with it today, I noticed the option to choose an alternate route. We are going to be driving to LA a little later this evening and the default route Google Navigation chose was longer in both time and distance compared to one of the alternate routes (total of three routes). The default route gave said it is 332 miles and 6hr/9min. When I pulled up alternate routes, the second option was 325 miles and 5hr/49min. The third route was over 7 hours long. Do you guys know what methodology Google Navigation uses to pick the default route? Why the longer route?

Android :: Program Google Navigation To Take Quickest Not Shortest Route?
Simple question, did anyone figure out how to program Google Navigation to take quickest, not shortest route? I love Google navigation, but it always trying to push me to drive through the streets instead of freeway even if freeway is nearby.

HTC Desire :: Google Maps Navigation Taking Long Time To Calculate Route?
Before I updated to android 2.2 and updated to latest Googlemaps the navigation was perfect. It calculated the route in seconds and was a joy to use. Since the updates, it is taking ages to calculate route, so long in fact that I exit the programme and start again, and then I just give up and dig out my atlas.

Android :: Google Maps Custom Route With Turn By Turn Directions?
Frustrating - but apparently the capability is I can customize a route online with Google Maps, save it to my maps and send it to the phone but it sends the static map.Ridiculously, all this power and I can't take those directions from the PC and turn them into turn by turn directions on the phone.

Android : How To Store A Route / Track Using Google Maps On G1?
Is there anyway to store a route or track using the google maps on the g1. I have a garmin that when on automatically stores your route and it can be saved and uploaded to the computer. It seems logical that this would be available on the g1, as it has all the capabilities already available, ie gps and maps. I can't find any mention of it or a way of doing this with existing software. It seems this would make for a very powerful tool if enabled. What about being able to sync routes and tracks with google earth? I have seen the new application "my maps editor" , but it only enables you to manually place lines or shapes.

Android :: Loading Route Directions In Google Maps From PC To Phone
Is it possible to move routes/directions from Google maps on your PC web browser to maps and navigation on your phone?

I have worked out how to export kml files from Google Maps on the PC.

It would have been nice to be able to save routes in My Maps (maybe you can, but I don't see how).

Also, is it possible to build a route with multiple destinations in Google Maps/Navigation on the phone?

HTC Droid Eris :: Alternate Route In Google Maps
Looking through the searches I can't seem to find anyone who has asked this question before and maybe this is being addressed with the 2.1 update. When I'm in the Google Maps application and I've entered my start and end point the route it give me is on a toll road or a highway I know to be very slow because of traffic. I know that when I'm using my computer for directions I can drag the line to add a via point / alternate route. Is there a way to do this in the current Google Maps on the HTC Droid Eris?

HTC Droid Eris :: Google Maps On 2.1 (Alternate Route)
I was playing with Google Maps after the 2.1 update and on one occasion for a trip a screen came up that listed (3) different routes with the total miles and time for each route. One was for I295, one for I95, and one was for US202. Since then I can't seem to replicate that screen. Any answers? Suggestions? UPDATE: Found the answer. After selecting Navigate for a route, click Menu and a screen will come up with (3) symbols on the bottom. Left most one is the Symbol for Navigate, the symbol with a couple of arrows is the one to PRESS. This will give alternate route info that you can select. UPDATE AGAIN When I tried again, the option I mentioned above was grayed out and no longer works. I'm not sure what is going on.

Android :: What's Difference Between Google Navigator And Google Navigation?
A client of mine also has an Eris and I was helping her get her navigation system set up and teach her how to use it. I wanted to put the google navigator icon (the blue arrow) on her home screen but could not find it anywhere in her apps. I did find the google navigation (map icon) app and set that up for her. So, my questions are: What is the difference between the two? How come I couldn't find the navigator app on her phone (on mine, it's under "programs")?

Android :: Google Route Directions No Turn By Turn Legal & License
Dear Android community, i've a license/legal question regarding asking Google directions to be drawn directly into the MapView. Some of you know that asking google will give directions in Json + a Polyline encoded form.What i would like to know is, where is the Terms of Service regarding this functionality? It is for Google internal use or not? There's also the KML which gives similar informations. Please note that it is NOT for real time driving directions but a path to be drawn from a point to another and your position NOT refreshed in real time and of course it is for an app downloadable free of charge.

Android :: GPS Navigation Without Google Maps
I'd like to show you off-road GPS navigator utility, created for active people. I like no-map Garmin GPS handy navigators, so I created software, that has most functions of such navigator. TripComputer records tracks of your trips and stores your interesting waypoints. You can view them on map view, see stats like distances, speed, time, altitute graph, bearing, azimuth, and many more. Also, if you have internet connection, you can send your selected waypoints and find waypoints sent by others,to use in you own trips.

At this time, TripComputer does not use maps - because in off-road areas, maps are useless. However, topo maps will be supported in future versions. Also, I'm working on GPX files and some geocaching support.

Using Fascinate if it matters

Android :: Google Navigation Needs Downloadable Maps?
Suprised that this has not been mentioned already, but in the timesonline article re the release of the GMN they mentioned downloading the maps to your SD card. Quote: The system?s main weakness, he acknowledged, is that motorists using their Google Maps satnav in Europe will be forced to pay data roaming charges. He suggested that users on holiday download a route using wireless broadband internet before setting out, and then tourn off data roaming to avoid racking up a huge bill.

So my question is can you?if yes how, if not when can you? or is it always going to require your data signal and download as you use? Also noticed someone mention that they did not like the voice for the sat nav only for some smart arse to simply reply, change it. I have a had a look and cant see how you can, so maybe said smart arse can enlighten us all

Android :: Google Navigation And Bluetooth Error
My google navigation will "skip" when I use it with my car stereo's bluetooth. The first second of every turn-by-turn direction, is missing. Any ideas on with the problem might be? I have an HTC EVO and my car stereo is the Dual XHD7714. When I use Pandora with bluetooth, everything is perfect, no skipping; even google navigation works great too when it is running with Pandora. However, when i run google navigation by itself with bluetooth, the first second is missing. Thank you in advanced and sorry if this question has already been answered. I tried to search for it but could not find any mention of it.

Android :: Understanding Custom Components And Multiple Resolutions
I had posted a similar thread a while back and received no feedback, so let me try to be more clear.I am able to use Androids components to build the most basic layouts, which include images, buttons, text areas, etc. These are like Android Lego! I can build the castle. BUT I want to design my own component, my own Lego, that draws on the screen and uses the available area that the Android components have not used. ie, I want to have a top layer of buttons, and the rest of the screen, whatever it is, I want to use to draw 2d graphics. So, I want to make my own Lego, and use it with the other Android Lego. However, I'm also trying to be a good developer and making this for whatever resolution is thrown my way. What is the best way to do this considering the deluge of different resolutions Android developers must cope with? Is there a way to do a table view and return the remaining screen size? Or, am I stuck making an entire new box of Lego here?

Android :: Multiple Choice List With Custom View
I've seen example from ApiDemos. In that example, each row takes the view android.R.simple_list_item_multiple_choice. Each such view has a TextView and a CheckBox.

Now I want each view to have 2 TextView's and 1 CheckBox, somewhat similar to the List3 example. I tried creating a custom layout file row.xml like this:


Then in Activity.onCreate(), I do like this:


The result kind of looks like what I want, but it looks like the list doesn't know which item of it is selected. Also, I need to click exactly on the checkbox. In the List11 example, I only need to click on the item row.

So what do I need to do to make a multiple choice list with my custom view for each row?

HTC EVO 4G :: Google Navigation / Most Of Evo Reboots Itself
Wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I travel extensively on the road and always use the google nav. The problem is when a phone call comes in within 30sec. to a minute at the most the Evo reboots itself. This has happened to three different phones. I drive a vehicle equipped with bluetooth and have synced my phone to the car and the same thing happens when I get a call and answer through the car while using google nav. Was also wondering why the heck google didnt think about automatically muting the voice on the nav while in a's so annoying while talking to hear the nav voice talking in your ear. The other caller can not here it but its very loud in your ear while trying to talk.
