Attempt to place features horizontally

I think is better and easier to add new apps if features are placed horizontally and apps are one per line. EddyP 20 mar 2009 17:16 EET

Routing features

Routing features descriptions:

  • Algorithms = What routing-Algorithm(s) are used?
  • Address search = Can the user search for city+streets?
  • Housenumbers = Can the user search for housenumbers?
  • Voice guide = Can it speak driving directions?
  • Route optimisation= What can a route be optimized for?
  • Lanes = Does it support lanes?
  • Turn restrictions = Does it support turn-restrictions?
  • Recalculation = Does it automatically recalculate the route if a wrong turn is taken?
  • Road block = Does it support route readjustment in case of a road block/avoid area?

Routing Algorithms Address search House numbers Voice guide Route optimisation Lanes Turn restrictions Recalculation Road block
limited limited Yes shortest/fastest
Traveling Salesman multiple Yes Yes Yes multiple No No
Navit Dijkstra with Fibonacci-Heaps Yes No Yes, with external apps fastest No No

Traveling Salesman Yes Yes Yes No No No
Navit Yes Yes (Nokia N810, Freerunner, Android, Angström) Yes Yes Yes No

roadman "Algorithms" and "metrics"

How can "Algorithms" and "metrics" for roadmap be "in development"? If it does not have a single routing-algorithm and metric it cannot route. ;) so, wich one(s) are offered? --MarcusWolschon 04:35, 21 March 2009 (UTC)


Just some questions about WeTravel:


What do you consider this metrics? Sounds more like filters of possible roads then metrics to optimize for to me. ("I want to calculate the most bike route from A to B.")


Of cause you can emulate one platform on another. --MarcusWolschon 08:45, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

platforms:handheld="Java Mobile"

Is that J2ME or what of the many mobile java-environments? What JCRs need to be supported by the device at a minimum? (There are many mobile java implementations for "Windows Mobile". Some have everything, some lack even basic networking and file-system -access) --MarcusWolschon 08:45, 8 May 2009 (UTC)


Can we have a column if the software can make use of an integrated compass? --Lulu-Ann 15:23, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
