Navigation & Guidance / Locus Navigation experimental
« on: November 20, 2017, 18:21:50 »
Some experiments by gpx I want to share

A gpx track. (wpt+trk)
Has (nav)instructions into the trackpoint attributes // no timestamps // Has 2 free wpt/POI's.
Import into Locus. Start Navigate. As expected: No navsounds // no visible instructions // POI alert functional

A gpx route. (wpt+rte)
Has (nav)instructions in the routepoint attributes // no timestamps // Has 2 free wpt/POI's.
Import into Locus. Start Navigate. SURPRISE !

++ Has Navigation Sound // Shows instructions // POI alert functional
++ Locus (TTS) announces Navpoints // Has "desc" info display in the navigation top text bar !
+/- Locus (TTS) announces Via Points  // Top bar text sometimes by "name" sometimes by "desc" ?
++ Route points Garmin/Locus Icons by <sym> are displayed.
++ The potential to navigate without instructions in Waypoints ?

Issues:
- Standard rtept's without <sym> indicated by "Red Arrow" Icon. (Prefer a discrete small dot)
- Only rtept's with attribute <sym> should be promoted to Via Point.
- Navigation message at common position rtept navpoints unreliable, navigation orders are not strict.

Oho John, carefull pse, do not suggest replace the meter/pixel choice method.
Both excisting methods are worthfull to be kept I think.
As I remember previous New Idea, solved by excisting (meter) functionality) ;-)

Route Planner Idea proposal.
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/fast-creation-of-both-most-important-routeplanner-points-shape-and-via
Fast creation of standard Via intended mainly for optimal navigation autorerouting to point.
Customised tts announcement optional by long tap to extended point edit menu.
Standard = By config.cfg: Locus default or user set.
To change excisting Shaping Point into standard "Via Point".
By Idea: Need 1 tap.
By V3.22: Need (2) a 3 taps. Depends If keyboard covers the Set button or not.(Landscape/Portrait)
By V3.26: Need (5) a 6 taps  Depends If keyboard covers the Set button or not.(Landscape/Portrait)

The new route planner is fantastic :), but less "create Via Point" friendly :(

Road snapping:

It is really not technically possible to do offline some road-snapping.
Info. It was some time ago I tested the alternative offline GraphHopper add on. Confirm "Locus map - add-on GraphHopper" offline has road snapping. Excellent.

Drag and drop problem.
Quote
I had no idea for all these years that drag&drop has such a problems in old planner. I'll try to do something with it next weeks.
In Locus help desk by "Alan Budden" see some dragging point demo's.
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/route-planner-causing-locus-to-crash

I tried that fast operation method.

By fast "TOUCH AND SWIPE" I do move points now, at last. Excellent.
(Locus user Manual ?)

V 3.26.1 Route planner -> export track to gpx.
Gpx attribute <sym> for "Via Point" is indicated. Also when "Via Point" had a change to a Garmin/Locus Icon by Point edit. Example: <sym>"Waterfowl" (tested)
But <sym> for "Nav Point" is empty.  Add nav <sym> text in both gpx 1.0/1.1 export.  Examples: "Left" "Left_slight" etc....

I note we should adopt standard terminology "auxiliary points" instead of "track points"
Correct, as these artificial helper (fake) points in the planner screen come and go without leaving any trace. So not to be named "track points". See picture in attachment.

Problem with dragging//I'll try to do something with it next weeks

For me, it seems "aux" point select have the lowest priority.
A lot of unnecessary (nearby) items popups, but no (to drag) 'aux' point(s) select.

I do not know if other beta testers had any problems with dragging. [/b]
Yes.

Dragging a point is very difficult on my (small )screen, but I have many unwanted drags. Dragging, to me, only works when I do not need it  >:(
  Agree.

So no dragging?
Only reliable secure method is by edit menu. Different hardware, different experience ?

http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/convert-to-navigation-waypoint-edit-this-waypoint
Locus 3.25.5 (no pc): Create Info Point is possible, but is a complex so slow process.
Faster by (single tap) "Point" menu ?
Point:
=> Delete
=> Move
=>To Trackpoint
=>To Shaping Point
=>To Navigation Point => SELECT Navigation Icon => SAVE
=>To Via Point => EDIT name => SAVE
=>To Info Point => EDIT name => EDIT description => SELECT Garmin/Locus Icon => SAVE

Shaping Point(s) into exported gpx ?
As ONLY Locus must recognise/reconstruct.
Shaping Point indicator in trkpt attribute <type>
<trkpt lat="51.0529732704163" lon="3.99975299835205">
<type>Shape</type>
</trkpt>

snap to road: Unfortunately there is still no interaction with underlying map.
As track design by (B) router offline near Shaping Points is +/- similar to trackrecord from "intoxicated" driver.

Do not like Via Points functionality anymore ?
Navigate by autorecalculate to Point makes no sense if your track does not contain at least one or multiple medium Via/info Points.

The new Planning tool.

A: Need track snap to road, caused by fast tap unprecise refpoint position actions. (Quick Point)

B: Actual Planning: Create Shaping Point is Fast.  Create (standard) Via Point is Slow(er).
Previous version(s): First tap Shaping Point. Next tap (at same position) Via Point.

Locus does not create a route...but track(trk).Thats why I do not suggest as in a gpx route (rte) we have routepoints) (rtpte.) Just for now I use Shaping Point.

Attached gpx: Has also Info Points": Same (re)calculate functionality as standard "Via Point".
Locus partly understand the gpx nav style. But the <desc> info is not displayed.
