Title: Distance from start
Post by: sbouju on November 02, 2020, 17:15:44
Can the value "Distance from start" be available in a dashboard during an activity recording (with no route planning)?

Hmm, and what exactly is "Distance from the start during recording"? It sounds like "total recorded distance" to me.

I mean the length of the straight (and shorter) line between the actual position and the start point...

I have an add-on module in my Garmin fenix which do exactly that ;)

Ah, understand. Sorry, such parameter does not even exist in the whole Locus Map.
Just my curiosity, for what is this useful?

Currently in France, and due to the Covid19 confinement, walks are allowed, but only for an hour and a maximum of 1 km from his home ...

Note that with Locus, it remains easy to show distance (from GPS position) circles on the map, and to check from time to time if the home remains inside the 1 km one... ;)

Even easier should be to draw a circle around your home with menu > more > geocaching tools > draw circle ;)

Yes, fine !  :)
Is quiting/relaunching Locus the only way to clear such a circle ? And if it remains always useful, can it be saved in user data...?

Work with these temporary objects is a little more complicated than it should be.

Removing ... try "Remove temp map items" feature. Most easily accessible over long click on the "data manager" icon.

Data are currently only temporary > removed after the app closes.
