Great release :-) I like the track chart a lot!
I have 2 wishes: can speed and altitude be displayed in one chart? Can you implement a trackback function?
THANKS Matthy

I thought about two graphs in one but I have problem with Y axis, because both speed and altitude have different range so I'll have to find any solution for this.

And what you think about trackback? If you want to see chart during track record, just click on info button on track record panel and press middle button to automatically fit chart to changing track. It this what you call "trackback"?

Probably this:
Trackback - The trackback feature is a very useful feature on most GPS units. It simply allows one to press the "trackback" button and receive instructions on how to return to the original start point from ones present location. On the Map Based Garmin units the map display will show a line of dots visually displaying the return route - one simply follows the dots back! This feature is very handy when riding on trails with many turns and side trails. If one were to become disorientated (lost!) one could press the "trackback" button and follow the GPS home! Trackback routes may also be "saved" and used again to follow a particular route or even uploaded to a computer and printed out on a map for others to use! (from this web page: http://www.webmaster10.com/ldr/page38.html)

If you have recored a track and you want to be guided back the same way you came from, that's what I call trackback.
To show speed and altitude in one chart, just place the altitudeaxis on one side and the speedaxis on the other side.

Hello,

Trackback is in fact the indication how to come back to your starting point. When you have recorded a track you already have the trackback information shown on the screen.

Trackback is a little more complex. in principle this function should be available at any time to bring you back when you are lost. This implies that the GPS unit is always recording the track to be able to show it when the user presses the Trackback button.

So to implement Trackback you need to implement a default low resolution track recording to be shown when the Trackback button is pressed.

I do not think this is very nice for Locus due to power consumption.
One option would be to implement a default tracking every 5 minutes switching the GPS On and Off for recording the trackpoint.

Regards, Lucifer

What I was thinking of is to select a recorded track, than two options for guiding: one like today, track to the end of the track, and a new one, to track to the beginning of the track - trackback  ;) .

Oh, I now realized the program is attached in the original post.

Actually I have never tried installing outside the market but it worked well after changing a setting.

The new release works perfectly so far. The fulltext search is great and not too slow even with 600+ waypoints. And the hide panel bug is gone now.

Will test a bit more later.
