I'm new to the forum, but a daily user of Locus for my adventures. I'm wondering if you can help me with something that to me would be a huge time saver for this already awesome tool.
As an alternative to the route builder router functionality (ie. YOURS, MapQuest etc.), do you know of a way to route via a stored Track (ie. one I've loaded via GPX etc.) where the router doesn't know the area? I imagine this to function where I would use the router to plan the known route, then have the ability to routing via the displayed routes on my screen. At which point, the builder would "snap" to the available routes. Since the track points are known, it should be able to use them?
This is a dream feature for me since I have hundreds of GPX files on my device. I've arranged them into Segments for the most part. What I've done to create the perfect route might be a combination of using the route builder and also merging those know routes into a new track. However, this is a bit clunky (although still pretty cool that it's even possible).
I suppose a similar feature to routing by segments would be as implemented on Trailforks where you can join multiple segments:http://www.trailforks.com/ridelog/planner/
(the issue with Trailforks is that it won't draw routes outside of these known segments unless done manually)
Alternatively (and I'm guessing more complex), it would be great if the map could snap to a visibly line on a calibrated map. For example, if I am displaying a map layer it would be able to "trace" over the lines on that map rather than me having to draw it manually.
If there is a forum posting on this, please direct me! I'm aware I can create a routing track then merge them all together to create a new track but that is very laborious!
