New iphone version 1.7

Postby zzyzxuk » Wed Feb 17, 2010 8:00 am

I just noticed a new version of the iphone client is live on the appstore, and I was curious about some of the new features...

Is there somewhere that says what the new features are and how they work?

I'm interested in the "auto-learn routes to your frequent destinations" feature... what does that do?

Yup sounds good.

So the process is that the iPhone get new features first then Android second :evil:

It will check your favorite routes to see which one is better.

Dunno if it is because of v.1.7, but I have definately noticed a huge Improvement when it reports traffic. It also appears to do far better at finding the route I want to drive. Overall, I think this new version is much better.

I did notice however, it still sometimes drops my routing if I choose not to turn where it suggests. Instead of recalculating, it will sometimes just drop the route forcing me to have to re-enter it while driving.

Overall though, good job on this one!

Ehh, I think maybe they are still tinkering with passive reporting... it works for about 10 minutes and then goes out, it's a cycle. Anyway, I like how it doesn't show "treats" when you are zoomed way out. I've not tried routing yet, but the alternate route feature should be fun once we get a build-up of wazers in my area.
