Track record - select what gear is being used

First of all - your product is an excellent and very power full mapping system, love it :)

I'm an enthusiastic mountainbike rider and also an occasional road rider. I try to record all my biking and often export to Strava. Strava has a feature to select used bike/gear for the record and I can then view how much I've been biking on each bike. I'm thinking it would be a great feature if we as users could select gear for each recording (easiest would be when closing the record, or auto-select last used bike...). A second idea is we could see the total distance travel for a given folder. That is I record all 2020 in one folder, would be nice if I could get a report of recordings in some way :)

It's already possible to some extend. I use different recording profiles for this. In these profiles, I configured different autosave and export folders.

Additionally, I use NFC-Tags on each bike and Tasker app to start recording with the corresponding recording profile.

Tortal distance for a folder sounds a great idea

NFC-tags - where do I find these? If not very costly that could be a nice solution, even if it does not calculate tot km in one folder. That feature I use already :)

With tasker you could have a tag for compass, and when tag read, tasker launches the locus compass screen

or launch a particluar preset like changing maps and otehr settings for bike mode.

This still should work correctly, I've written a small article about it some time ago.
