Right on target!

If you can use voice commands, ice is an option.

New weather hazard request

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Fri Feb 01, 2013 3:36 pm

Please search before posting. There are several threads about ice already. It's only a voice command for now. And there are too many "slippery road" possibilities to add, so the request is to just have a single slippery road option later. It doesn't really matter why it's slippery.

I see you found one of the may other threads about this: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=33798

Please search first next time.

It is only available in the voice commands - BUT you can always select weather, tap the back button (on Android, not sure about iPhone) to not select a specific type of weather, and they add a description of "Ice" or something similar.

I would really love to have a warning for iced and slippery roads. What do you think?

Oh I don't use voice. I was looking for it in the weather warnings.
