Quote from: Menion on April 17, 2021, 06:40:07Problem is that you have more than one point on the map. Reduce it to 0 or 1 and it will work.

Quote from: slarti76 on April 17, 2021, 15:30:27Well, played around with the syncing, back and forth, Route Planner, Track Editor - couldn't find any wrong behaviour whatsoever!
Quote from: Andrew Heard on April 17, 2021, 23:59:43now I am more confused - how can a route be generated (completed) if there is only 0 or 1 points in existing route?
Quote from: Viajero Perdido on April 18, 2021, 01:41:43I had the same confusion, with nothing more than an error message to guide me. I assumed (like others?) that you use that function after you've drawn the route to your destination, then it [does something magical] to get you back.No, that's not the intent, you eventually figure out. May I propose, "Suggest round trip"?
Quote from: Andrew Heard on April 18, 2021, 02:28:58"Suggest round trip" - yes, slightly better & shorter text too.
Quote from: slarti76 on April 17, 2021, 16:56:17Two more things:Switch track and point detailsI like that you can now switch back and forth, but it's not intuitive. It would be best to have the button switch from point to track in the lower left.

Who would ever rely on a random rotation function around a point?It is not possible to define preferences of any kind, be they historical, naturalistic or cultural, so rather than relying on a random function my choice at a crossroads would be that of the road I like best, at least it would be based on my choices.Unless real utility can be found for this feature, integrating it with the options I wrote above (and all the complications of the case), it should be removed, useful and solid functionality better than things like this that do nothing but generate doubts in users.Those who use a GPS and map device usually want to rely on certainties, not on a roll of the dice.But this is just my thought, maybe someone else found it useful, but for now I haven't seen a single post.
