    Here's a suggestion - with the new browser UI, how about setting up a system where the Navigation app can be on our phones for a more immersive experience?

    Actually, you can kind of do it already, not very nice experience though

    Is it the same thing as the Forza Horizon SmartGlass application?

    Whoo-wee, can't wait for that. Does it potentially mean that we could get live navigation around the map, like can be seen in GTA games or Forza Horizon series?

    It's not usable for me from any kind of device. Just gets stuck at ...reconnecting... endlessly, no matter if it's from my phone or through the web browser on my PC

    Hm, did you allow BeamNG in your firewall?

    Can I have separate UI setups on my 'browser' and my game?

    No, not yet :/
    That's next on my TODO :)

    Right now its 'just' the game UI 1:1 replicated

    That's fine - I can be patient :D
    The feature is really nice - a whole lot quicker than the standard UI, so I really appreciate it's inclusion!

    Just checked. On the firewall list, there are 2 BeamNG entries; one of them is fully allowed while the other one is just allowed on private network
