For the sake of this topic I will call any visible track in the tracks list a "saved track".
A single tap on a saved track on the main map screen will display a popup or screen but when a track is being recorded a single tap on that track is completely ignored. This is inconsistent and confusing to me. Why not treat a track being recorded as saved track i.e. display a popup or screen? For example it would be nice to tap the track being recording > Chart.
The only workaround I know is to stop the recording then start again, or tap the tool icon at top/right of track recording panel and tap "Save actual part". For both workarounds my track recording statistics are reset and also must later merge the tracks back into one.
