Navigate along route from point to point

I wonder if there is a possibility to navigate along a route from specific point to point?

We have a lot of kayaking routes and sometimes we want to navigate from one specific point to another. It would be a great feature to estimate time of arrival.

Maybe navigating on river/lake/sea is an issue...?

Hello,

so you want to grab only part of the route and use only this segment for the navigation?

Exactly, just a part of it.
And mostly a part of a kayak route...

a workaround, although more complicated, is to edit the route & split into 3 segments

We use so many different parts of the complete route, so it will be a lot of split routes. But indeed...it is a workaround.

There is currently not a more robust tool to do such kind of editing, sorry.

Another workaround without splitting a track into segments is to use analyzer in Locus Map Classic with Settings > Points & tracks > Tap on track > Popup. Please see the screen capture.

- The 'Navigation / guidance' button is available in the 'Popup' menu. It appears by tapping on the track(part) preview in its detail screen followed by selecting the track(part) on the map. This is possible only in Locus Map Classic but not in Locus Map 4.

- If the 'Screen' option is selected instead of the 'Popup' option, the 'Navigation / guidance' button is not available.

- To remove the track(part) from the map, Locus app have to be closed then restarted. There is no 'hide' button in the 'Popup' menu.

@menion
The method above might be unexpected or obsoleted behavior but it looks working fine. I hope it's not difficult to implement the navigation button for a track(part) as well as for normal tracks in the track detail info view. Then the feature will be available in Locus Map 4, too.

Ok, thanks anyway.
I hope there will be a solution in the future.  :)

That's about what I am looking for. Interesting workaround, hopefully it might show up in Locus Map 4 too in the future. Thank you for your time, looking for a solution.  :)
