Marker widgets

Overview​

Map markers are selected points marked with flags on the map. They provide useful information for navigating to direct points on the map screen.

On the top bar widget you could see the distance and the direction to the marker from current location. It is possible to configure to see 1 or 2 top markers in the widget.

On panel widgets "Distance" and "Estimated time of arrival" to the map marker are displayed.

note

"Estimated time of arrival" (ETA) is the value that is calculated as the distance to the marker / the average speed.

The average speed is calculated from a specified interval (15sec - 60 min). For example, we have 300 location points with speed data during a specified 10 min. Average speed is the sum of speeds from points data / 300.

The distance to the marker is a straight distance from your position (or a specific map point) to the marker.
