Navigation & Guidance / Locus Navigation experimental
« on: November 20, 2017, 18:21:50 »
Experimental robust navigation method by gpx files I want to share.
- The prefered trk_navtrkpt method can't be tested by actual Locus version !
- Only the simular rte_navrtept method is (partly) recognised for a test.

Instructions in (trkpt)trackpoints..
Gpx (trk)track_navtrkpt + wpt
Contains Via points, Nav points, Shape points, trkpt's, and free (isolated) wpt's (poi).

The trkpt's with <sym> should be promoted into Nav_Point OR (target) Via_Point.

Instructions in (rtept)routepoints.  (= Testalternative)
Gpx (rte)route_navrtept + wpt   
Contains Via points, Nav points, Shape points, rtept's, and free (isolated) wpt's (poi).

Test import into Locus. (attachment = 33_G_stwg_navrtept_direct_NL_POI.gpx)
-  Rtept and Poi containing Garmin_Locus Icons by <sym> are correctly displayed.
-  Routepoints(rtept) without <sym> are indicated by the "Red Arrow" Icon.

Start Navigate.
-  Locus navigate announces the NavPoints and ViaPoints.
-  POI alerter (if set) the Poi's.

No <sym> rtept's should behave as simple trackpoints(trkpt) in tracks(trk).

- Difference between (rte)route_navrtept or (trk)track_navtrkpt method is minimal.
- Change rte into trk and add trkseg. (See picture compare)

Navigation & Guidance / Strict Navigation

Locus V Test.
Navigation -> Advanced settings: Strict route navigation: enabled !

Issue 1: The 8 track problem. Locus takes shortest path to trackend. See attachment File 1.

Issue 2: Export navigation track to share LocustoLocus by gpx v1.1. Strict navigation is lost on complicated tracks :-(
Import: Locus recognises tcx course(track)points and associated course(way)points.
Export: Why complicated system with associated common position *timestamped points for LocustoLocus exchange.

Alternative: gpx system for  LocustoLocus (Navi)tracks exchange.
In export gpx track, integrate navigation instructions in the trackpoints <trkpt>.
All PointType inclusive Locus type support by <sym><name><desc> elements in <trkpt>.
Attributes: Latitude, Longitude. Elements: sym, name, desc.  * Optional: Time, Altitude.
Additional support merged normal waypoints <wpt>.
A trackpoint: (<sym> used is Locus type)

<trkpt lat="51.05003" lon="4.00269">
<desc>Turn left onto Damweg (Portions unpaved).</desc>

Example file: See attachment File 3.

Navigation & Guidance / Navigation Generator

Why Navigation(guide) along track ?

Simple compact loud and clear guiding help for relatively (short) circuit designs.
Respecting minimal screen on time or so minimal battery drain.

Perfectly functional on MTB trails and (partly) going off road circuit builds. No shortcuts in circuit driving allowed !
Functional on temporary and unmapped paths also, or paths that even never will be mapped now or in future.
For this purpose some fine tuning/add/delete/edit of Coursepoints should be possible.
Perfect, strictly timed guiding even when using common trackpaths, multiple driving a path in same or opposite directions !

Automatic Guiding Navi Generations based on and by (re)routing maps in Locus = NON EXISTENT ! 
Routable map, and App as such, is not available in Locus.
See other treads routing subject. (Brouter and others).

Navigation & Guidance / No .tcx file support Locus ?
« on: September 23, 2014, 10:21:24 »
No .tcx file Import. Export .tcx file. Not compatible with Garmin Gps.
