Komoot BLE - inexpensive turn-by-turn navigation device

  • Hello,
    I would like to do a project similar to this one on an M5Stack.

    The goal of this project is to create an inexpensive turn-by-turn navigation device based on ESP32 and Komoot's BLE Connect API. Komoot is hiking, cycling navigation apps on android and iOS. It is possible to connect the app to BLE display for turn by turn navigation. I would like to reuse as much code as possible from this existing github project. This code is C++ compiled directly with Arduino ESP32. It look a lot like compiling a complete new firmware with only one app/code running.

    Is it possible to flash an M5Stack with its own firmware and a single application compiled from C++ ?
    Using an M5stacke would save me the trouble from having to assemble an ESP32, monitor and battery from the Adafruit kits myself.

    A subsidiary question is there a boxe to make an M5stack weatherproof. I would like to ride it on a bike.

    A waterproof core is on its way.
    Interesting project, as it is arduino and esp32 already then you should be able to compile it and program it from arduino.

  • @ajb2k3 thank for the advice
