Canoe Navigation possible?

Hi,


I am wondering if it's just possible to create a track on water by typing some points on the map and then let locus navigate me on the line between the waypoint. Just show my the right direction, my position, distance to paddle... !?! :)


I created a track but I think locus doesn't understand, that I don't want to go over the road at all.

Is there any option to do this? Or a other app? Its just the easiest way of Navigation I think!? But I dont find any app.


Best Regards

Hi,


of course you can be navigated along an own created (clicked) route. Just create the route by Add new route tool ( http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:tracks:planning - without help of a router, of course, just free drawing points on the water) and then tap the route on map and select "Navigation". (http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:functions:navigation:along-route)

Hi,

I missing also this task inside of Locus. May be a solution for the future. Is the LOCUS-team thinking about this?

Meanwhile I found an upcoming App (currently only for iOS) http://www.canua.info developed by http://www.dkv.de (The German Canoe Association) who should make a good impression. But we have to wait till it's released for Android...

Locus could do that too if there is a kayaking/canoeing router and routing data. Perhaps BRouter offers such a profile - it's possible to use BRouter routing profiles in Locus (see https://github.com/poutnikl/Brouter-profiles/wiki)

Hi Michael, that means, we have to built a "waterway" profile in/with BRouter and then we can use it inside of Locus?


Edit. just now I found "river-poutnik.brf" . This can I use?


Edit 14:14: when I using it :

1. routing planner

2. settings

3. routing profile "river-poutnik"

then get an Error: "remote.brf does not contain expressions for content way (old version?)"

Why "remote.bfr" and not "river-poutnik" ?? Error

I must admit BRouter profiles are not field of my expertise. Perhaps @Libor Poutnik Striz can help? http://help.locusmap.eu/agent/profile/3064
