This is a topic migration from the old forum: https://copilot.zendesk.com/hc/de/community/posts/115000246325-Feature-Request-Drag-a-route


First of all: The all new CoPilot app is beautiful. It is clean and way more intuitiv. Thanks for that!


But: An unique selling proposition ist suddenly missing: to manually drag a route on the map. For me as a biker, this feature was essential for planing my day trips. I hope so badly, that you are still working on this in the new app.


Thanks in advance!

Any invitation to alter settings while driving can only be considered dangerous and probably illegal.


Dear Copilot Users:

As part of our improvements to our latest CoPilot V10 version, the route planning UI and the Drag option have been overhauled to make it easier to preview alternative routes.

You are still able to customize a route from the map planning screen by tapping on the road you wish to take, then on the tool tip pop-up tap the arrow and select the option you prefer from:

Set as New Trip, Avoid this Road, & Route through Here .

I also miss drag & drop functionality badly. We use CoPilot on survey missions and often it is necessary to adapt a route quickly. The proposed alternative does not offer the same advantage!

Guten Abend. Ich habe die App gekauft, weil sie etwas konnte, was andere Navi-Apps nicht konnten. Die Route zu ziehen. Dafür habe ich Geld ausgegeben. Es war für mich eine zugesicherte Eigenschaft. Diese Funktion wurde leider entfernt, damit ist die App für mich schlecht geworden. Und kommen Sie mir nicht damit, ich kann die Route durch einen Ort führen, den ich antippe. Das will ich nicht!!! Und es ist nicht das selbe! Entweder diese Funktion wird wieder aufgenommen oder ich verlange mein Geld zurück. Wie sieht Ihr Angebot aus? Notfalls lasse ich das durch einen Anwalt klären. Sie sehen, ich bin deswegen ganz schön sauer. Ich bitte um eine Rückmeldung. Mit freundlichem Gruß

Personally I haven't missed the drag route option. I didn't find it particularly helpful. I prefer to insert the odd waypoint- route thru here. If you must have it why not revert back to version 9? http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/alk-technologies/copilot-gps-navigation-app/copilot-gps-navigation-app-9-6-4-144-release/copilot-gps-navigation-app-9-6-4-144-android-apk-download/download/ There maybe an ios version there.
Adding waypoints / route through here works well sometimes but 'drag a route' works better in other situations. Why can't the app offer both functionalities? Losing the ability to drag a route is definitely a backward step - please bring it back!

 "Drag a route" option was the only reason for me to use Copilot,now every other free Navi app could be the same or better.

Thanks, that is really useful. I spent a very frustrating hour trying to find a suitable route yesterday following a road closure. The preferred route for the app was through the closed road, I couldn't find the alternate route function or drag and drop. Whilst I much preferred the V9 functions this does at least offer a solution.
Having said that I am looking at alternative mappinng apps, as although I have bought all of Europe and traffic updates, the new version is really a huge step backwards to me.

 

Hi,

Having contacted customer support I had the following response which is a good option to dragging a route, and means you do not have to manually insert lots of waypoints. Just enlarge the screen and tap on the road you wish to take (or avoid). I wasn't aware this was an option and it has helped me:-

...yes, bring it back to V10 please. Such a useful function. Better then create a new waypoint.


Cheers Joachim
