Add a waypoint name or use default on Android Wear

When tapping the Add waypoint icon on the Locus Map for Android Wear application a new waypoint is added to the current track.

Unfortunately, this is not so useful to recall later because it doesn't have a name. Why don't you use the standard Android Wear input screen API to ask for a name (image below)?

In this way one can use the voice-to-text or keyboard to type something to remember later; you can also replace the Ok auto-response above with Auto, which can be tapped by people in a hurry who don't want to type any name and keep the current functionality.

Swiping the screen out instead should cancel the addition of the waypoint.

Finally asking for a name should be added when stopping the record of the track too, even it's not as important as the single waypoint in my opinion.

Any news about this? Do you think it might be difficult to implement or is it something that is possible?

Hello,

not implemented yet but definitely something that is possible. I will start working on the new update soon (in 1 or 2 weeks probably) so I will take a look into this how difficult/time consuming it would be to add.

Hi, I noticed that with the new Locus Map for Wear v1.1.2 you've implemented this feature.

Hello,

yes the implementation of this idea is currently in beta :) The keyboard handling was a little buggy during development, hope it will work fine now.

By the way have you tried HRM function? I have reports that it doesn't work (on Polar M600) so I would like to know if other users and watches are also affected.

Have a nice day,

Milan

Hello,

a possibility to name waypoints from the watch during track recording is currently in the last stable version so I will close this issue as completed. But as always please let me know if there are any problems or some tips for improvements.

Thanks,

Milan
