Proximity alarms feature

Postby ndoggac » 2014-07-29 14:31

Just thought I would offer a suggestion for a new app feature(s). Proximity and Route alarms.

Alarm if straying from route.

Proximity alarm to a way point, or set of way points.

Proximity alarm to a KML polygon. Would require inferring line between way points used to create polygon, and then determining the closest point on that line.

Great work on the app, it works really well!

Thanks for your suggestions.

Map Plus 2.0 already has "Proximity alarm to a way point".
In Detail Info screen of any place, turn on the "Arrival Notification", and set a distance for the alarm.
Map Plus will draw a circle on map around the place, and will alert you if get close.

We are planning to add the same feature for polyline and polygon for proximity and straying, based on your suggestion.

Thanks for the feedback and consideration! Didn't realize there was already a waypoint alarm, cool.
