Guide to (Guide on)

Just the other day I wanted to see how far is a certain POI from a nearest settlement. I thought I would do it with a "Guide to" ("Guide on") function but that measures distance from GPS or last known location. Wouldn't it be more informative to show distance from screen center (cross hair)?

Also why different names for the same functionality? It's "Guide on" in the POI menu and "Guide to" in the functions panels.

And why no "Guide to" function in the "Side menu/More functions"?

Hi,

Guide to/on is a feature guiding you towards a selected POI so it always shows the guidance line from your position or from the last known location. If you want to measure distance, use other tools or methods. There are a few in Locus: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:functions:measure
