When navigation is on android auto the HUD and the driver info shows roundabouts 180 degree out ie the image says 4th exit, but shows 1st exit

The information on the android auto app in the head unit of the car is correct though, so just the driver binnacle and HUD

I just made a patch for this, which should be available in one of the upcoming versions (4.2.1 most likely).

When navigating using ABRP in my VW ID3 the directions on the drivers display are incorrect for roundabouts.
I am in the UK (driving on the left). If the directions on the main display shows take first exit, the drivers display shows to take the third exit, same if the directions ask for the third exit the drivers display shows the first exit.
The blue line show correctly to go clockwise around the roundabout, and I don't know if this fault exists in Europe (driving on the right). I have posted on the Volkswagen ID. Drivers Club Facebook site to see if this fault is found by other drivers but as yet no-one has confirmed that they do.
I have included pictures of the ID3 main display and drivers display

Merged with: Roundabout directions for VW ID3 drivers display.

I've got the same issue on my Skoda Enyaq. The Head Unit and Voice instructions are correct, but the image shown on the dash binnacle display seems to be flipped the wrong way. Regular Android Auto directions (e.g. using Google Maps) are correct. It is almost as if the binnacle unit is being told that the car is being driven in Europe, and hence shows the 4th exit as if on that basis. I have also noticed that it mostly happens when being directed to take the 4th exit, as for regular roundabouts (with a normal number of exits) I have not noticed that issue.

Can you please share a shortened route where this happens for you? Then I'll check it again and if the data we send is correct open an issue at Google.

Sure. If I recall the journeys where I specifically noted this issues were:

IP22 2PQ to IG8 9RG: The issues noticed for the directions at the roundabout where the A143 joins the A14 at Bury St Edmunds.

AL2 to AL4 0JA: The issue noticed for directions at the A 414 roundabout at London Colney

So i just checked it again, we always provide roundabout clockwise to instructions in the UK.

So just to make sure (maybe you can confirm with a photo if possible) is the roundabout direction wrong (counter clock wise) or is just the angle wrong, but the direction (clock wise) correct?

I haven't got an photo easily to hand (they are not routes I do often and I tend not to take photos of the binnacle when driving), but to me it looks like the direction is wrong. So the voice call out may be "take 4th exit" and the display on the Head Unit is correct, but on the in-dash display it appears as if it is treating the roundabout as being anti-clockwise.

Yeah ok if it is correct on the Android Auto display it should be the same on the secondary screen. It's the same information after all. I'll get in contact with google then.

I have attached two photos that show the issue. Apologies they are a bit blurry but my wife was reaching over to take them while I was driving.

Ah I see. Looks like we have to provide the angle in a different way for CW roundabouts. Will notify google about the gap in the documentation as well.

Worthwhile pointing out that this is not an issue for every roundabout. for standard roundabouts it appears to get it correct. I have only ever noticed it on roundabouts that have more than 4 exits.

BMW iX3, like I say the central AA screen it's right, the dashboard and HUD is back to front, it reads right, shows wrong


Avatar

Ashleigh-Paul Charlesworth

Yeah like i said, head unit is 100% right, it's the HUD that's wrong (just looked at your screenshot)

Google maps/Waze show it correctly though

Samuel_ABRP

Not sure what to do with this then... seems to be a google bug if it works with other apps, because we send it is a roundabout CW which is correct. Will open a bugreport on google and then you might have to provide more information to them.

Samuel_ABRP

Ashleigh-Paul can you please provide a photo, that shows AA with correct roundabout and HUD with wrong roundabout? That would help in raising the bug.

Hi Ashleigh-Paul,

i just checked with a random UK roundabout and see the following data we feed to AA. We send Roundabout_CW (clockwise) to the instrument cluster. So I'm afraid this might be a bug in your car. Which car is it?

Best
Samuel
