Dynamic manually downloaded temporary poi's
« on: November 13, 2011, 19:17:49 »
Would love a button to load kml,json or xml as POI's from a URL (set previously in settings). I would like to be able to show the location of a number of tracking devices but could also be used to show Marine AIS etc.

If locus had a text field where you could input your url . i.e. www.yourdomain/locusfeed.php  which would output kml,json or xml in a format decided by you. Then just display those points on the map. when you press the 'fetch' button a second time the points are erased and the new points downloaded - not to be stored just temporary points.

Does that make any sense at all ?

Cheers.

Any progress on this?

I'm using Locus with downloaded sea maps on a Galaxy Tab.
Works like a charm and costs a fraction of a marine GPS plotter  :D
When in range of a network I also like to get updated of other traffic in the area by use of the "Marine Traffic" app.
Would have been awesome to have AIS data either as an overlay or as "Sputnik's" idea.. -dynamic POI's!
