Hi,


on-screen compass rose is possible only with custom screen, not with dashboard feature. More info here: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:advanced:customization:screens

In other threads, I've seen links to examples. However, I cannot get any of these links to work, they either end up at a screen telling 'this subject isn't written yet' (or similair) or a blank page. Do there exist anywhere already made custom screens to test?

Thanks, but this might be a reason for my problems, I don't get any links or d/l info in these topics. So I don't know how to d/l these CS's... I've tried i FireFox and in Vivaldi... I get only static texts (except for usernames...).

By the way, I saw in another thread this comment from you, but that link seems to end up empty (even if I remove the extra http://):


"Hi Suman,

by the way, this skin is built as "custom screen", the newer posibility to built personal skins is to use "dashboard" with multible parameter for display

ok, back to your Question,

the custom screens i have built are for balloning and geocaching and not special for hiking

The GC-screen i use while geocaching, to display the distance and direction to a selected target, not to track the distance.


I think http://http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/shop:items:custom_screen_balloni_ballon" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/shop:items:custom_screen_balloni_ballon">http://http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/shop:items:custom_screen_balloni_ballon is the better skin for your usage.

It display more infos and your whish to display the traveled distance is posible after you start trackrecording on bottom of the screen.

Try it and have fun"
