Troubles & Questions / Re: Waypoint time stamp
« on: March 18, 2018, 09:58:38 »
Yes, sure I do understand.
No problem...(some reasonable) fixed real world values are sufficient and nice.
To be coupled with <ele> for most optimal ETA estimate is not to be discussed here.
Idea sharing about adding extra functionality see FREE, open for discussion, "experimental" forum topic.

Some additonal info.

To be able to (re)edit points you MUST Import into the Locus internal database  !.
There are various methods to IMPORT your (a) point(s) into the Locus internal database.
In attached .gif see one (of various methods) example.
Your view can differ as Locus is highly customisable !

Export to gpx :
Android export to sdcard usually does mean: Export to internal storage!  (A simulated sd card)
Different expressions are in use by many different hardware makes !
By my Samsung Tab 4: Export Path: /storage/emulated/0/Locus/tracks/export/TAB4
By my THL4000 phone: Export Path: /mnt/sdcard/Locus/tracks/export/THL4000

maybe to something "funny" that will point on some world problem?
Usefull (funny ?) tool for MTB offroad users.  Trigger screen cleaner at Locus start...thanks. :D

Dit not forget this topic.
Technically (tcx ! must have timestamps in *tcx course and tcx coursepoints) to be shared does work, yes, ....but....
Locus and nice correct (referencing) generated timestamped tracks ? 
No way ! No change. (actual V 3.30.0)
Timestamps would make sense if used with an added value of estimated point arrival (relative to start).
Still patiently waiting for a Locus version generating more nice (representing realistic speed) referencing timestamps. Locus, otherwise a most nice app, still generates unrealistic (ugly) timestamped tracks (tcx and gpx).
For BRouter case, this can be done with the advantage of present elevation info.
As +/- in experimental topic:

* A tcx (timestamped) course and tcx (timestamped) coursepoints by the tcx associated system
Course and Coursepoints expression: By the official Garmin standard tcx system
Very similar to:
A gpx (timestamped) track and gpx (timestamped) waypoints by (non standard) but similar associated system.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Track editor problem
« on: March 14, 2018, 07:57:15 »
Track editor = Routeplanner.
If I select and move directly than it is OK
Indeed seems the only correct 'technique' for fast.

How to simulate a gps movement by the central cursor  (gps off ) ? 
Reinstalled to V 3.29.1.

Navigation & Guidance / Re: Locus Navigation experimental
« on: February 09, 2018, 11:44:15 »
ViewRanger compatible route(rte) files use both gpx <cmt>(and or)<desc> elements. Locus should display both elements if present. The reserved area for text display must be limited in order to keep maximal map view at navigation.

At navigation the navpoint or viapoint info is displayed by the gpx elements <name><cmt><desc>.
Limit display text area by using maximum two single line top bars !  (<name> has lowest priority)
If text in top bar does not fit into a single line lenght.   <=<=<=<=<=  Move text  =<=<=<=<=<=<
(Total characters in a single line depends by portrait // landscape // screen dpi // top bar lettertype etc.)

Suggestion: By config.cfg select prefered Lettertype in top bar.
As by the move action text info 'auto fits' into a single line top bar.
Large letterype <=>Small lettertype
+:  Important for the older guys.
- :  Less map view.

An example view by webdisplay ! (Open this topic in browser !)
By the gpx rtept elements <name> <cmt> <desc>
<name> Free (any language) content. (lowest priority so is not displayed in example)
<cmt> Free (any language) content. In example = Street name
<desc> Free (any language) content.  In example = Long descriptive point information  ;)

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.
Using both elements <cmt>(and or)<desc> is also observed in various external generated gpx file sources by the track(trk)_waypoint(wpt) method. At navigation text by both elements must be displayed, as otherwise half of the information is lost.

Thanks John. I do use alternative vector maps too but....
I think ;) in the Locus store: There should be an indication by a 'Vector" Icon into the map description.

Locus V3.28.1.10 Start up ok.
After news, I had I look at the new concept of Locus Store  :)
Q: How do I know (selecting so before download) what maps are Vector ones ?  (Lomaps are)
