Straight arrow showing until close to turn

If the next turn is far away, Scenic first shows a ‘Straight’ arrow until you get close to the turn. How close depends on the kind of road you are on. On highways it’s mostly 3mi before the turn, but on smaller roads the turn arrow might show up later.

This is unfortunately out of my control. The arrows are provided by the routing framework. I’ve tried many workarounds to this. At one point I got it working (generating the arrow image for the actual turn in the background), but when I released a version with that, it caused crashes during navigation for quite some users, so I had to roll it back.

I’m afraid this is something that needs to be fixed (or at least made configurable) by the routing provider framework. I’ve already told them about it, but so far they did not take action.
