I have created pre-parser to help get more info into Locus, details follow question. Is there anything I can add to each Waypoint to predetermine it's icon in Locus (so that airports with fuel could show up differently than those without for example)? Is there anywhere I can find more information about your GPX import and option available so that i might see what other features could be useful.
As for the pre-parse, I tried adding a table to the description ("desc") field of each waypoint as you had previously suggested to darkm20, but I could not find a way to embed the html in such a way that it didn't break the import for those items (although I can add simple text and have it show up fine). So for now I pre-parse the GPX file and do the following:
1. For all NON-Airports I prefix the name of the Waypoint with the navaid type (many airports have a VOR or other navaid of the same name making it difficult to choose the correct point on the map), so nav aids now show up as "VOR: BlahBlah", or "DME: BlahBlah" etc.
2. I append the abbreviation of the item to the NavAid:Name so that the name you show has the abbreviation included. This gets rid of all duplicates for MI at least, and also makes the abbreviation available in Locus (primary way to identify airports).
3. I append a * to the abbreviation if the airport has fuel available (* is the designation on US FAA Charts for airports with Fuel).
4. I create entries in the "Frequency" section for each runway so that when you show frequencies you also end up listing runways, lengths, and surface types.
I've attached two screenshots in-case others are interested and haven't ever imported GPX data for airports. If anyone is interested in my pre-parser I'd be willing to share/extend it. You could try contacting me through this thread (although I don't know how quickly I'll see it) you can also email me at ehansen( @pmsi.cc ).
Thanks again for a great App!
