If you have just released it with a portable Huawei, it may be that some of the functionality you find in the menus may surprise you with the lack of other customization layers. One of them, and we'll talk about today, is this travel mode.
In addition to the unique look, the customization layers are trying to add value to mobile phones with new features that are not pure Android. Previously we saw a twin app, a simple mode, a safe and a private place and today it's an opportunity for one of the most hidden functions: travel mode, a kind of carefree way of driving
What is EMUI navigation mode?
Huawei mode is a special way the phone is very or very low key, only shows phone icon. While it's active you can't open any programs or get notifications.
Travel mode is the same driver-free mode when driving. Due to its features, it is especially useful for motorcycle trips (its icon is, after all, a motorcycle helmet), although it is equally useful when traveling a car. In addition to keeping you from being distracted, you can automatically answer calls and keep a simple record of your trip.
How navigation mode works and is configured
There are two ways to activate travel mode. The fastest way is from its quick setup, where it happens with one button. If you haven't been added to Quick Settings, you can access the same by going to Settings> About Phone> Navigation mode. The only thing you need to do is activate the box.
Now, after using the travel mode you can't touch anything else, so you have to pre-configure it. There is not much you can arrange, except for how calls will be answered automatically: reject without further ado, by voice message or by text message.
For voice responses, you can choose between a predetermined message in a multitude of languages and come up with something like "this caller is driving and he can't get to you. If it's urgent, press 1". If you wish, you can record your message. Text replies include many templates and you can create your own text.
This way, when someone calls you while the travel mode is activated, the cellphone answers the call without informing you and send a voice message or text message. In the case of a voice message, someone else has the option of pressing "1" and the phone will ring normally. The phone icon shows a bubble with the number of calls you've answered.
As an added feature, travel mode can also track your trip. Optional, so you should use it in settings you can change high energy consumption. It's not as complete as sharing location in real time, keeping track of only distance and duration.
This record can be found in the section Travel analysis, which sets the total distance and time taken for each trip we took while the travel mode was activated on the mobile phone in the time chart.
