Audio alert for navigation

Recently there was heavy traffic and I didn’t notice I had to take a right turn and continued straight. We all know Ather navigation shows as if we are going on correct route and re routes after atleast 0.5 kms. Because of this i had to go 2.5 kms for u turn wasting 5 kms of range making my plan go haywire, so i suggest we get audio chimes for turns as we don’t have a speaker like ola. I am always using my mobile phone while using Ather unlike Ather ads, Ather can use the parking and turn signal hardware and chime for this.

I agree. I have missed many turns too. They can easily turn on “Voice” alerts but may be not a priority. But yeah, alerts will be a great help.

I guess the turn beep is on. I use it and it does help others on the road to notice the turn indicator blinking

Agreed, indeed a great suggestion.

This will truly be helpful while riding. Currently, we have to keep looking at the dash every now and then if we are not connected via Bluetooth earphones.

The turn indications mentioned are with respect to maps as Ather maps tend to load with a little lag some times it does go grey so we may miss the turn is what he meant. Just to clear the air.

I believe Google Maps API restricts this

Under section 3.2.3 a point iv says

And regarding this point, Just because it’s not being used the way it could have been it doesn’t mean it’s not there :upside_down_face:
