Fuel / Milage Gauge ?
« on: September 09, 2015, 13:15:28 »
I use locus for a lot of off road enduro. It would be great if it were possible to have a fuel gauge, that could be reset each time I filled up again.  What I do now is record from the start, and start a new track with each fillup, and use a custom dashboard to show
Speed
Track Distance (full)
Altitude
GPS coordinates (on one line)

but it would be really nice to have a fuel gauge that showed miles till reserve, or miles covered.

Any interest ? thanks !

Hello,

new ideas > Help desk.

Anyway I'm worried that this is far beyond what most of users (hike & bike users) expect from Locus ... as you may see, something around "Fuel", do not belong into most wanted features: http://help.locusmap.eu/search/fuel

You should look for synonyms, too - "fuel" can have a broad meaning. Bikers and Hikers simply prefer different kind of :-)

OK I understand wanting to keep the focus on hiking/biking. the main reason I've wanted a countdown or count up odometer is fuel range of two stroke bikes. I could see this also being used in electric bicycling, etc


currently I just use the tracking function and display mph/total distance/battery percentage, but a odometer would be nice.

the kids like to see their tracks from walking to/from school everyday too.

anyway, I understand, keep up the good work.
