For righties, roundabouts make drastically more sense when driving left.
I was completely enjoying roundabouts in the uk, i drove a magic one also.
In right driving countries, roundabouts are an alien thing because you have to give way for the people already in the roundabout. But that actually means giving way for people coming from the left hand side which is the only occasion for such behaviour in righty road traffic afaik.

In lefty traffic, roundabouts just feel natural, at least for drivers used to right-lane traffic
I hope this made explanatory sense

There is a corresponding issue open WhoGo Maps github (a while ago). I suggest to check the issues once in a while.

What is that big blue circle? The small one with the beak and a dot in the middle is my position, but the other one...?

Another thing, my voice stopped working again. Two things happened that I am aware of. OSM Scout Server received an update and I downloaded a few new maps. The voice navigation is tuned on in settings.

The blue circle is a marker. You can make a marker if you do a long tap on the map. After setting a marker you can use it for different things, by tapping on it:
  • Navigate to this point
  • look up whats around
  • and share this position via sms or mail or copy it to clipboard.

Can't help you with your voice problem. For me it works reliable.

These recent changes should not interfere with the voice. Try to run WhoGo maps in command line

Code:
sailfish-qml harbour-whogo-maps
and see if there are some errors printed.

Also take a look at Poor Maps issue #69, "TTS is not working stable", which affects WhoGo Maps, too.
Please report the TTS engine used and if your experiences differ from mine, there.

Would it be possible to add Google Maps as a routing provider? (I know they have restrictions, but perhaps if WhoGo required you to enter your own API key?)

I don't see myself shipping something that's clearly against the terms of the service provider, no weasel technicalities will convince me otherwise. The provider plugin system and dynamic programming language in WhoGo maps though do exist exactly on purpose and of course allow anyone to quietly on their own do whatever they want.

I've just tried the app on Jolla 1, it improved a lot and I really like the vector based maps. Is it possible to add the function or rotating the map with 2 fingers? I find it useful.
