Has anyone with 6.14.2 used the navigation in the Karma? Curious if most of the tempermentality of the system has been eliminated.
I think you meant UI.brian said:4. Accessing anything else is virtually impossible due to the inexplicably awful API. WORST API OF ANY NAV SYSTEM IN THE HISTORY OF NAV SYSTEMS.
How does it not have compass????brian said:Yeah, the Nav system apparently does not have a compass. It uses motion to determine direction which causes the car to be aiming the wrong way a lot of the time. Plus, when you make a turn, it doesn't reflect that on the map until you've driven another 500 feet or so.
Also, often it says "Turn Left Now" *after* I've already passed the intersection. This has caused me to miss many turns.
Your point is precisely why I think Fisker has the fundamental right. I question Tesla's fundamental premise on a pure EV. GM Volt doesn't have a powerful enough battery to do a pure electric drive, ICE will come in without choice at different time. Karma is the ONLY car in the market that is a pure EV yet without range anxiety. It has the whole market segment to itself, if people want a pure EV without compromise, no range anxiety and have $100K, Karma is the car.LonePalmBJ said:Getting lost drove home another interesting point: I'm really glad I have a range extender. If I was all electric and near the limits of my range getting lost would be very nerve wracking, or even render my trip uncompletable. As it is, while I don't *want* to use gas if I don't have to, it's nice to know I can if I need it
Did they get a new NAV system. It has been like 4 months since this thread was active and the above says 1-2 months. Threads likes this are very discouraging for possible future buyers.SoCalGuy said:I heard that they're working on a new TomTom-designed NAV which is still "1-2 months away" so let's hope that is wayyy better than what we currently have. But to Brian's point, I'd find it very odd if the car didn't have a compass built in - seems like a very clear miss if that were true.
I find the current NAV system completely adequate. Once you get used to having to hit the check mark to confirm each action when selecting a destination, the actual navigation works quite well.scottf200 said:Did they get a new NAV system.
