Weather condition & Road conditions

Postby onezerosix141 » Tue Jan 15, 2013 9:17 pm

I was looking at Weather Hazard list and isn't it possible and be better if they were buttons?
It's nice to know if it's raining but it would be better if I could post how hard in weather? By how much visibility is affected?

For driving safety thing too? I would like to use voice commands all the time but with two little kids in the car constantly, it is hard to do.

Another thought is on Road Conditions. If I could report hydroplane zone or black ice be awesome!

Thoughts? ^_^

A "reduced traction" or "slippery road" condition is plenty to cover nearly every single possibility for ice, snow, water, oil, gravel, etc., which reduce or eliminate traction. By the weather outside, it's pretty obvious which it is. Oil/gravel: just slow down, you don't really need to know which it is.

Not implemented. It's merely a suggestion to reduce the need for 10+ different types of "slippery road" buttons.

Yeah that would be nice ^_^
Road condition like that is more helpful than weather which is easy to see

I would second that suggestion, I can see if its raining but maybe not know how long and therefore if there is a risk of localized flooding leading to hydroplaning etc.

I do agree with these additions as well as adding "HIGH WINDS" to the weather button. Here's in So Cal we may not get snow but winds going by mountain passes can get so strong it can topple semi-trucks.

Thanks!

Wind is already available in the US as a voice command only.

IN my part of the world (Malaysia), we get a lot of floods where roads are impassable by traffic and in many cases, it's a dangerous condition as cars can skid and aquapan.

It's be good to get an option under Hazard->weather->flood.

Already noted in a dozen threads. Flood is also already an option via voice command only, and only in NA unless you have hackivated voice commands.

Please review the list so you know what is already there and what will come to everyone eventually, when they figure out voice commands globally.
