Editing long route causes Locus Map to crash

Guy Evans shared this problem 4 months ago

I do a lot of long distance day walks (25+ miles). These are either created by 3rd parties or by myself in external software. If I import these routes and then attempt to edit them, Locus Map crashes. I assume this is because every point is being turned into a "via point" - which in itself is not useful.

Perhaps one solution, would be to have an option on import so that only route points (rtept) which have a cmt/desc are turned into "via points"? (This would also work very well with the upcoming dashboard functionality to show distance to the next via point.)

Sample file attached.

FWIW your GPX file imported successfully into my LMgold4.2.0. Yes, lots of via points but otherwise no issues.


Hi Guy, could you please send a bugreport created after the crash? Thanks. More at https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:faq:issue_reporting
