[mkgmap-dev] Thoughts about dest_hints (in roundabouts)

From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Mon Apr 9 06:39:06 BST 2018

Hi Harri,

I fear I don't understand. I've tried routing from east to west through this rather normal roundabout:
These are the direction hints produced by Mapsource for the default style:
2.      Get on Feldstrasse and ride west
3.      Enter roundabout Visbeker Strasse
4.      Take the 2nd right onto Visbeker Strasse
5.      Visbeker Strasse

What do you suggest to change?

Betreff: [mkgmap-dev] Thoughts about dest_hints (in roundabouts)

I've been investigating dest_hints for a couple days and finally got
working. (special road types 0x08 and 0x09 got me badly at first).

I'm wondering why is this implemented only for ways starting from
motorway_junction node (if I understood the code well). I think it could
be very usefull to get hints in for example roads coming from
roundabouts. (no exit junction hint is needed there but destination hint
would make routing directions sometimes easier if one got "towards that
an that" -type text)

Any ideas if this could be an easy and usefull improvement?
Chears, Harri
