Pace variables for dashboard and track stats.

I had brought up the idea for having the pace variables in a post on the Forum http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.ph...


and wanted to make sure I put it here in Ideas in case anyone else would be interested.

"is there an option to show Average Moving Pace or Current Pace?


I know malesmurf used pace in a custom screen design, but I cannot find that option in the choices for a type inside the dashboard.


(Pace=minutes/mi and is used by runners to see how fast they are going instead of speed)"

"about missing variables ... what isn`t in list, cannot be set. I`ll keep these two in mind and will add them later"


What do you guys think? Any other people out there who use locus for running and would like to be able to use Current or Average Pace on your custom dashboard screen? I set my dashboard up to show speed, average speed, distance, time, and elevation currently, but would much rather use Pace so that I don`t have to do strange math calculations in my head =) Also wondering if these pace variables could show up in the track statistics where it shows speed, distance, and time.


After a run I export my tracks and bluetooth them over to my computer for upload to RunningAHEAD so I can manage them.


Thanks again Menion for the great app and all the interaction that goes on between you and the users on here and the forum.

For use as a running app, a pace unit (minutes per km) would be great.

Hi Gregor,


dashboard improvements are collected in another place.


Please add your request here:

I think, this question is not related just to dashboard, but to all places where you should see a speed in Locus. So I'm changing this question to idea, so users should vote if interested in such feature.

Hello.


I like the idea, I think part of Locus guide for use in training (sports).

Generally the speed in min / km is called "pace".

It would be good to not exclusive speed or pace, but to show both.

Ah I'm stupid. Are you familiar with Dashboard as Tommi mentioned in his post?


If so, please try it. One of possibilities is to display "Pace" values right on dashboard

In the dashboard have not looked (sorry), but I do not see where the pace is on the track summary information and not see it as a choice as data to display in the graph (y axis pace, distance x axis for example).

I think it would be interesting to see the pace on those screens.

Greetings.

This is correct. Pace value is not visible in track details.


I'm currently working on improved version of screen with point details. Small discussion is here . And when this will be done, I'll start to work on new screen for tracks, where average Pace will be visible between other parameters

Excellent! We will be waiting for the new screen.

I have merged two similar topics together, to give them higher chance to get some votes ;)

The current pace in dashboard doesn't give real-time pace. It looks more like an average pace. A real-time pace on dashboard is much more useful for runners.

I agree with @grasscap: looks like the current 'pace' is an average page, not a realtime/current pace, is it?

Can a realtime pace be made available, please?

Thanks

For me there should be no need to make a distinction between pace and speed anywhere in the dashboards, recording or stats. It should be speed only, but the unit choice for speed should include mph, kph, minute-mile, minute-km.

However, this shouldn't be a global unit choice, it should be per activity type, or per folder, or per recording profile- however you can manage it so when I'm using my Cycle recording profile it shows kph everywhere, and when I'm using my Running recording profile it shows m/km. Then, no-matter what variation of 'speed' you develop (current, average, lap, moving average, etc), you 'just' need to show it in the current unit type.

The problem on the axis of the speed chart of course is 0kph is infinity in minute-km and it's a non-linear scale.

If I didn't make it clear- I am FOR having pace metrics; minute-mile and minute-km are units of pace and I'd like it to be possible to show my speed in units of pace and/or in units of speed.
