(animated) arrows to determine the track's direction
« on: September 11, 2012, 10:45:13 »
Hello,

the planned track is sometimes too complicated (sometimes it looks like a maze or has a self-crossing). There is a problem, to understand, which direction of the track's is correct.

for eg.

 
I had problems with orientation in cities 3-4 times during the last bike tour and moved the false (opposite) direction.
 
I'd like to offer a solution: tiny (animated or static) arrows on the track, that point the direction of the planned track.

Regards

hi,
  did you tried highlight track with map center? Just simply move map center to any point of track and you should see small arrows that display direction on track. Works?

thanks a lot for the answers, guys.

it works, but i can't see the arrows on the Motorola Defy.

please notice, that a snapshot is approx. 3x larger on PC's display (72 dpi) as on the Defy's display ( 265 dpi ).

that's the reason why i have written: "tiny"  :mrgreen:

@"i see this":  
throw your mobile in the garbage  :lol:  - joke

I agree with your trouble!
..and so we can hope, Menion do it too.

@menion
maybe helps a "track_path_symbol=0|-3|15|0|0|0" in the config  :mrgreen:

seems like gynta is in good mood :)

arrows that are visible when you hover a track were defined as exact number of pixels, no matter on size of device screen. Fixed now and I think it looks better (on big screens they're twice as big)
