I am using Locus Pro for some time now, and I have a feature wish: The possibility to route / guide along a recorded or imported track - neither me nor Google found such a feature!
Background of this is that I do much cycling, and on the one hand, I commonly record the track when we are driving in a group, so that I can lateron find it alone, and on the other hand, there are websites like gpsies.com or similar that offer GPX track downloads for hiking and biking.
Before I found Locus Pro, I had TrekBuddy for this purpose, but Locus Pro is WAY better
only yet I could not find this feature.
The way how they treat the routing there is as follows:
- you manually select the direction of how the track shall be followed (forward / backwards). Then the GPX track is treated as a simple ordered list.
- on the screen a direction and distance to the closest point is shown.
- as soon as you get close to the point (trigger distance can be set), the next point out of the list is selected; like this a point-to-point navigation is made.
- if you skip points (e.g. if a route is blocked and you go around), it continues routing as soon as you get close to some arbitrary point of the route from this point on.
As far as I can estimate, for Locus Pro this would simply (?) mean the possibility that not only a calculated track, but an imported / recorded track can be used in the navigation feature - correct me if I am wrong!
Again, I want to thank you for the great work you made with Locus Pro, the UI and the map import feature is absolutely lovely!!!
