Getting started with navigation

Getting started with navigation

First of all, three methods can be used to get navigation;
• Searching for a location and going to the location from the search result
• Get navigation to the location you have saved or shared with you before.
• Navigate to a location you choose from the explore screen, where you can see places around you.
If you are looking for a venue, we recommend writing as detailed a word as possible in the location search field. For example, instead of typing stationery or compass for Compass Stationery, you can increase your probability of finding the right location by typing “compass stationery”.
If the location you are looking for does not appear in the search results, you can try different words. Sometimes the names of the locations may change, or the location we are looking for may not be saved on the map under that name. If the location is not on the map, you can get navigation to that address by searching the internet. To get easy navigation to the address, you can search for “Nergiz street, no 15,” including street and house numbers. In addition, you can search only the zip code, house number, or street name; you do not need to enter all the address details.
After starting the navigation, you must be at the side of the street or street to get more accurate guidance. Especially if you are in large areas such as parks and gardens, the application may see you differently due to position deviation. Therefore, you can get as close to the road as possible and start navigating later.

After starting the navigation, there are three things we need to do before we start walking.

1. How many meters from the location will we go as a bird eye and in which direction.

a. Knowing in which direction we will go as a bird’s eye distance will be very useful to learn where we are at our main destination along the way. Often as you walk, the bird’s eye distance will decrease, and the clockwise position will stay ahead of you. But sometimes there are routes where the location is seen behind you, but you have to walk straight. After walking, there may be a route that you will return from ahead. Therefore, this information will be helpful.

2. The first step is to check what to do and which way to walk.

a. In the first step, you can look at the two lines in the middle of the screen to learn what you need to do and in which direction you should go. For example, the data turn left at 9 o’clock after 120 meters shows us that after walking, we should be on the left of the road and turn left, and if we are on the right of the road, we can understand that we need to cross from a suitable place.
b. We can learn which direction to walk with the guidance on the second line. If the name of the street you are on is written like “Proceed on Ahi evran street” without specifying any direction, you are looking in the right direction. If there is a direction such as 4, 5, 6, or 7 o’clock, you can understand that you need to turn around.

3. To learn the next steps in navigation;

a. While walking on the road, the location may deviate for different reasons, our battery may run out, there may be a problem on the map, but if we learn how to go beforehand, we can make inferences on our way. From where we will turn right / left, how many meters we will walk, from which streets we will go, we can visualize the map in our minds.

4. Now that we have all the information, we can start walking.
