Extra trip field

Extra trip field displaying bearing

As well as the default blue circular Trip Time button on the map screen this puts an extra trip display field onto the map screen. To change the choice of field to display long press it.  The fields are configurable using long press.

Field choices

There are a lot of choices for each field. To change which data is shown, long press the field you want to change.  The fields are split between tabs at the top of the screen.

Some of the choices are:

Trip distance – the distance travelled since you last reset.

Speed – your current speed.

Maximum speed – the maximum speed recorded since you reset.

Average speed – the average speed since you reset.  This is calculated over the time you are connected to the GPS.

Moving average speed – the average speed while you have been moving since you reset.  The time you are stationary is not included, so if you stop for lunch this figure is not affected.

Pace versus average speed (dial) – compares your current speed to the average speed. If your speed is less than 90% of your average speed it displays 'slow' and if it is more than 110% of the average then it displays 'fast'. The percentage is also displayed. Pace versus moving average speed – like 'Pace versus average speed', but this pace compares to the moving average speed. Pace versus fixed speed – like the other two pace figures but this compares to a speed you choose. Set your target pace in Settings > Trip > Pace speed, then this field indicates how fast you are going relative to that pace. This setting is saved with your trip profile, so you could save one profile for jogging, one for cycling and could even have an uphill variant.

Time of day – displays the current time. The date is also displayed.

Trip time – the time spent connected to the GPS since you last reset.

Time moving – the time spent moving, as indicated by the GPS's speed, since you last reset. You can set the minimum moving speed in Settings > GPS.

Time stationary – the time spent stationary (not moving), as indicated by the GPS's speed, since you last reset.

Location – the coordinates of the current GPS location.

Altitude – the altitude of your current location calculated from your installed mapping data.

GPS altitude – the WGS84 altitude reported by the GPS.

Heading – the direction you are moving in, as reported by the GPS, in degrees.

Bearing – if you are navigating along a route or towards a point, this shows the bearing you should take to the next point.

Navigation arrow – the navigation arrow, displayed when you are navigating along a route or towards a point. It indicates the direction to go relative to your current direction to reach the next point. The colour changes, as described in the navigation section of the user manual.

End destination – the name of the route or target point.

Distance to end – the distance to the target point or end of the route.

Time of arrival ETA – the estimated time of arrival at the target point or route end.

Time to end ETE – the estimated time elapsed (the time it will take) to reach the target point or route end. Next destination – the name of the target point or next waypoint.

Next waypoint – the distance to the target point or next waypoint.

Next ETA – the estimated time of arrival at the target point or next waypoint.

Next ETE – the estimated time elapsed (the time it will take) to reach the target point or next waypoint.

Cross track error XTE – the distance you are away from the planned route. Arrows indicate the direction to get back to the route.

Velocity made good (VMG) – the velocity taking into account the target destination. If you are travelling at 10kmph but your heading is not directly to the target point, this shows the component of speed that is towards the point.

Sunset – the time of sunset, sunrise and solar noon (when the sun is at its highest). These are calculated for the current GPS position and for the phone's current date and time zone. To see the sunset on a different day temporarily change the phone's date setting.

Compass – if your phone contains an electronic magnetic compass, this displays the compass arrow and circle. Blank – the field has nothing displayed.
