Few strange behaviours found on app.

Recommended Posts

After a few use of ABRP for some long trips I choose to buy the PRO version to use wit CarPlay and with all the feature.

I use and iPhone 12 with LeafSpy (Nissan Leaf) and CarPlay. The GPS is taken from the phone, LeafSpy send data every 30 seconds.

I see few strange problems.

1) It looks like the map center is not the car position, but a position in the "future" based on expected route and car speed. When I'm on high speed route the car pointer move near the bottom of the screen (this morning was so near the bottom that is in line to the mapbox word) and when I was near the turn the screen rotate before I take the turn (and so the car pointer does it). In my opinion this last beaviour is wrong (and different from the other navigator I use) and in complicated cross make very difficult to understand where I should drive. Attached an image on what happened yesterday at a cross. This is on both phone screen and carplay screen.

2) The map jumps from car location to next turn and back during navigation and I don't understand why. I don't think is a GPS glitch because it look likes it jumps to the next turn, not to a casual point on the map.

3) Italian voice translation (not the app translation that is fine) is wrong. It look likes it uses english sentences translated word by word in Italian. But sentences construction is different and some terms are wrongly translated. At the roundabouts  the sentences are very strange. It use "in" instead of "tra" to say how many meters the next turn is far, sometimes it say right instead of left (but I'm not yet able to detect when this happen for sure).

Thanks

Hi @TheCorsoGuy,

1. Yes, there are definitely improvements that can be made for situations where one is about to make a turn. Both in terms of direction and centering of the map. We are aware of these and it is on our list to make these improvements.

2. This I don't think I've seen or heard of before. Would you perhaps be able to record this behavior the next time it occurs? (Aware one cannot record while using CarPlay)

3. Could be bad translations. We do have all our translation files publicly available in this Github repo: https://github.com/iternio/abrp-translations
Should you have the time it is possible for users to contribute / make corrections to existing files directly in Github.

1) Thanks, I'll wait new version

2) I'll try to record it to show to you asap

3) I know there is at least one guy working on Italian translation. I'll take a look at it also. But I'm talking about voice messages, not text. And I think you should work on different syntax in different languages if you don't already do that. I think the speaked sentences are builded putting together different partial sentences following syntax rules. But English syntax is different from Italian syntax and look like you are using English one with Italian words. And the result is a bit weird.

Thanks a lot

Luca

I give a look to the translation file and I see I can find also the voice messages into it.

I think I also see where I can improve it. But I have a question. Is possible to test it before submitting to you? I have no way to check when a voice message is used, so testing it can help translating in the best way.

Regards

Luca

@Katya-ABRP

I also have this strange behaviour on every route I drive.

Using iPhone 11 Pro with ABRP App 4.0.49 and CarPlay.

I try to record this phenomenon with a second smartphone. 😉

I made a video, I'll share asap.

But I have a more detailed description. In my case only the CarPlay maps jump, while the map on the phone act correctly.

But, again, if I use carplay, the orientation of carplay map is in the moving direction (as expected and except for the turns, as I already explain) but the orientation on the phone became strange and completely random.

Hi @TheCorsoGuy,

We unfortunately do not have a way of testing it before submitting at the moment.

Okay so both platforms display these issues but only one at a time?

Hi Katya,

no, they are two different topic.

The first one: only Carplay map show the "jump" beaviour. And when Carplay jump the map on the phone keep its correct position.

The second one: usually, while I use carplay for the map, I keep the consuption graph on the phone. While I was trying to understand the map "jump" issue, I start keeping the maps on both Carplay and phone. In this case, after a while, the map on the phone lost the correct map rotation (while keep the correct position) and the car pointer start to point in direction different from the driving one (it looks like it was not able to correctly follow the direction changes of the car). I'll post a screen shot later.

Here a photo that show the issue. After more or less 5km the map go back in the correct position.

Seem it happens when I make few turn one near the other.

My phone tooks two screenshot in the same moment, the one from CarPlay and the one from the phone screen. So you can see the differences.

Regards

Luca
