Then they should submit a proposal so others can vote for it.
Here is the place to do it: https://help.locusmap.eu/
Select the web planner as an option.

Here are all the suggestions for the web planner:

Thank you, so I found a similar idea I voted too with 5 votes.

Discussion/New features / Re: Improve the Locus gpx (rte) route export.

1) If a route with only few waypoint is rerouted by another app, the way between the waypoints is determined by the 2nd app. Of course the 2nd app can decide to go another way. E.g. if it calculates for cars instead of walking.

2)
For a track with thoundreds of waypoints it makes not much sense to export a route. For a manually created route (not following a road, but straight lines) with max. some dozend WPs I would just go the other way and create a route in full xml format and even add the routepoint names (or at least the numbers of the triangles). See the example below.

Advantage of this format: If you export it to e.g. Garmin, the device can show you the WP names and you can route accordingly.

[Yes I know XML has some redundancy but there are sufficient reasons, so it succeeded in getting the standard in computer programming.]

I think there are a lot of things in Locus world used by 1% of the users, so if this is a 5% in your opinion, it's at a very good level.
I never wrote this is a priority task, just an idea for improving the functions of web planner.
And remember, not all the users are "nerds" like in the locusmap forum, there is someone out there that do not use 2 devices at the same time.
And it is not said that when you go out in a group others use their smartphones for GPS navigation, providing them with a paper map is always useful even for educational purposes only.

This feature stopped working in Locus Map Pro some time in 2020. Since then it only offers turn instructions according to the shape of the track, which is useless.
I sometimes want to create a route with brouter-web with Locus-style turn instructions and I'd like Locus to actually say them. That was the most useful feature for me.

not always good to rely solely on electronic devices.
I rely on two devices... smartphone and etrex Vista hcx. In case of smartphone failure, which never happened the past 10 years, I think I'll have a hard time using that Garmin ui... No paper necessarily in central Europe. May be different in Antarctica.

Hello,
as an old hiker I know it's not always good to rely solely on electronic devices. It is often good to have a paper map and a compass. Not only that, sometimes it is nice to be able to print the path you want to do to show it to the other participants also because not everyone is able to use electronic devices. It would be nice to be able to print from the planner: maps, statistical data, points, altimetry with adequate formatting, certainly not the one offered by the browser.
I think that there are very few who can't or don't want to use an app. You can always make a screen print. There you see the same as on a paper map. You can even see more. That should be enough for 95% of the users. There are many functions that are more important.

Ich habe die Watch 4 inzwischen bekommen und auch Locus Map darauf installiert. Die Verbindung von Smartphone zur Uhr funktioniert auch, aber ab der Uhr werden keine Karten, bzw. keine Route angezeigt. Muss ich da noch was einstellen/auswählen?

Ansonsten wäre es schon wenn Locus auf der Uhr ohne Smartphone genutzt werden könnte. Dafür gibt es ja schon ein feature request.

Edit: habe jetzt herausgefunden, dass man leicht links von der Mitte vom oberen Rand nach unten ziehen muss um an die Karte zu gelangen. Leider beißt sich das mit dem Systemmenü.
