So I was thinking, it would be very nice to get Navigation Notifications on the Gear Fit.
The problem is, if you activate notifications for Maps in the Gear Fit Manager and turn on navigation,
notifications won't show up. That's because the type of notification Maps is using.

I looked a bit into it and it seems i found an easy solution.
Someone would just have to write a small app, that's sending a normal notification
every time the actual Maps notification is updating.

Sure, you woud have to delete them later on since they will fill up your Bar,
but anyway, it would work. Just think of cycling for example or what ever.

Maybe i will try to do it, but if someone is experienced in this...would be nice to have.
A dedicated App could be useful as well, but would be harder to do.

Let me hear what you think of it.

yeah sure it would work with nearly everything.
i was researching a bit more into this and the app could be like this:
list with all your apps
checkbox so you can select all the apps you want to have notifications
some settings with intervalls etc.

this will also bypass the 10 apps limitation since you can select just this one app
and it will send all the notifications you need
