Oh I'm using it. :) it just takes a while to get my head around how the API works when it's so inconsistent. I'm working on the UI bit now and then I have to implement destination searching. I'll hopefully have something ready in a few weeks.
Awesome! It will be great for Android owners to have a “one size fits all” app. The route planner app made no sense to me. I’m also amazed that after 2 years it still has zero EV functionality.

Thanks again for all your brilliant work :D
Can I make a small suggestion relating to the Departures function? I only use it about once a week during the Covid crisis but each time I make the same mistake because I forget to click on the small "OK" to select the time before going to the screen where you click on "Submit".

Is it possible to do one of these things:

a. put the "OK" in its own button (so that I don't forget it), or;
b. combine the "OK" instruction with the "Submit" button (which still shows at the bottom of the screen but cannot be accessed until after OK is pressed.

Option b would reduce the number of button clicks by one and may be a more elegant solution but it may cause problems with the repeated timer function (which I never use).

Thanks again.

I'll see if I can add a setting for that :) thanks for the feedback

Small progress update: I've now implemented the entire Jaguar Here maps API (with the exception of the route planning component) and I'm testing it internally now. I'm sure there are some bugs that need to be ironed out and I still have a lot of tests to write, but so far I'm pretty happy with the results. If all goes well I'm hoping I can deploy a public release within a week or two!

New version, downloaded, looking at the new navigation options. Thank you Ardevd... again. I really do think that JLR should be paying attention (and paying you) for this App; it is great.

Hope it works well! While the navigation features are pretty simple right now I did spend countless hours reversing the API and implementing it. I've tested it extensively but only with my own account, so there will probably be bugs in there I havent encountered yet. Let me know :)

Hi ardevd, l logged into Navigation ok. I am in Australia. I am unable to exit the "Where To" screen back into WattCat, the back arrows from the "Destination Search tab" do not work. I have to crash out and restart the WattCat app.

Cheers Steve

That's very strange. You're saying when you click the back arrow on the top right, nothing happens? I'm unable to reproduce this issue myself. Does it happen every time?

Hi ardevd, the top of Destination Search screen back arrow refreshes the map and brings up the keyboard every time.
Two taps on my phone's back arrow located below the app ( at the bottom LHS of screen ) brings up the Navigation tab with Destinations showing 1 favorite I created. Hitting the hambrger at Top LHS returns back the Detination Search.
An endless loop. I have to press square button at bottom of my screen and then clear the app.

Hope this helps.

Cheers Steve

P.S. my car is in Deep Sleep today.
