As for roundtrips navigation autorerouting to point, multiple Via’s are a must. Locus v3.26 route planning by Shaping points is fast, but any Via creation mainly to be used for navigation (re)routing retards the fluent planning sequence.

Short tap create Shaping, next tap (same postion) a *standard Via Point.

By short on point taps, function toggle between Shape <=> standard Via.

If occasionaly need a special TTS announcement -> Menu by long on point tap.

*Standard Via Point: By fixed (pre)set <name><desc><sym> (config.cfg)

Locus default Via Point: <name>Via Point <desc>empty <sym>icon_direction_down

User set Via Point example: <name>empty <desc>empty <sym>Waypoint

(A TTS silent Via point at navigation represented by a very discrete dot Icon)

By long (on point) tap: Pop up menu. To final result by minimum (=>) total taps.
