make ways thinner

Description

the current ways are way too heavy-stroked. Problems caused by this:

  • no way to see motorway_link unless you are fully zoomed, on most highways
  • problems seeing the blue route "trace"
  • ways that are close together merge together, except at maximum zoom

This is not a "the user can change it in navit.xml, not a bug" problem. The default setting should be usable. I tried looking at navit.xml and could not even figure out what the width settings meant, and which of the 18 (or more?!) settings I had to change. It's crazy, there should be a simple "master" width scale, or a gui setting for that to be changed in 2 clicks.

comparison between navit and google maps; google map is not perfect either, but their road widths are more reasonable

Actually, on smaller devices like the freerunner thinner ways are hard to read, so the change can't be done globally. We need to write differents layouts for differents resolutions groups (small / high).

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Currently, the suggestion would be to adapt your navit.xml according your needs/tastes. It's very hard to find a setting which will fit every devices.
