Folders for Points

Michael Peeters shared this idea 3 months ago

Locus is very powerful.

That's the reason why I'm using it as a Tour database, too.


The idea to have different folders for tracks and points works well for a lot of cases. But there are cases where this doesn't make sense.


I have multiple points for each single track (parking places, sight seeing, hotel, lunch....).

The best solution to keep such points to the track would be the possibility to store such points in the same folder as the track(s). But I think this is too complicate.


Right now my solution is to have a point folder for each single track.

This means a lot of point folders.


For Tracks we have groups and folders. For Points we have just folders. It would be nice to have the same group mechanism for Points, too. Then I can create a point folder for each single track without exploding the point folder view.


I think groups for points makes sense for other users, too. In this case please rate this idea.

Good day Michael,

as @Condor correctly wrote, we already have "groups" for a points. You also named your idea as "folders for points", so to be true, I'm confused what is wanted here :).

"Join track with selected poi points". Complicated ? Complicated = Missing function: "Join" > "Add points into track" (not offered by Locus). Import attached file into Locus database. Select "merge points with tracks". (= Not complicated).

"Track AND Points" = Joined into single track in the database tracks folder. No ?

By hell. You're right. I missed it. I forgot that I have to create a group to see the selection in point edit dialog.

Locus is awesome.

Hi Michael +, glad it works for you. I noticed in help desk you probably also use navigation. To even better serve you, have a look at some excisting idea's and suggestions. If interested see you there.

A. Goal: No need (free) for external source file import. In Locus prepare wpt_poi's, a simple track, than join both into the Locus database track folder. Optional export to a single gpx file. Pse add your comments and + Vote here:

B. Strict route navigation and wpt_poi combined into a single gpx file. Combine a strict navigation route with a most compact poi list. See info: (experimental)
