Support RouteYou web Via AND Shaping Points by the trackpoint <type>.

Completed

Promote the Planner Points Via or Shaping 100% unambiguously by the gpx <type>

Example Locus track download from the RouteYou webplanner here:

https://download.routeyou.com/ns9mw7cv2bw865ae2yqap389gewxnm8e/route/10453298.gpx?language=nl&format=locusmap&pois=0


The RouteYou webplanner now generates both Via Points and Shaping Points in the gpx export.

The distinction between the two Planner Points is marked as follows.

Via Points are with <name> <cmt> <sym>pass_place and <type>Via.

Shaping Points are with <cmt> <sym>pass_place and <type>Shaping.


Also is a best compatible solution for the current Locus versions:

All Planner Points appear as Via Points in the current Locus versions.

Shaping Points without a <name> so do trigger TTS 'silent' Via Points.

And find the download Locus gpx file in attachment here ;-)

A Shaping Point = A 'muted' Via Point.

By <type> Shaping "mute" ALL navigation announcements belonging to the track point.

Find in this (2p) doc at the end of page 1 next

Not Announced Shaping Point @Navigate. (Green triangle in the Locus Route Planner)

- Planner Reference and Navigation Target.

- Navigation trackpoint by <cmt> & <sym>pass_place & <type>Shaping.

- Shaping points by <type>Shaping act like “MUTED” Via Points @ navigation.

- No sound announcement nor by TTS nor voice (morse) tones, no Icon display, no top panel text, no auto display on.

Only if the planned via points as well as the shaping points are output in the gpx file, can a route exported as a GPX file be reloaded with a planning programme and further processed (extended, changed). That is why I think it is very important and makes sense to keep and export shaping and via points differentiated in an export file.

In recent Locus map the "pass_place_silent" is available, so the suggestion is to use it also this way.


A trkpt containing the following:

<sym>pass_place</sym> then results into the Locus app like:

<locus:rtePointAction>pass_place</locus:rtePointAction>.


A trkpt containing the following:

<sym>pass_place</sym> PLUS <type>Via</type> then results into the Locus app like: <locus:rtePointAction>pass_place</locus:rtePointAction>.


A trkpt containing the following:

<sym>pass_place</sym> PLUS <type>Shaping</type> then results into the Locus app like: <locus:rtePointAction>pass_place_silent</locus:rtePointAction>.

Hi Willy,

oki, in next version, "Shaping" type will make via points = silent. Thanks

The test result is fine and as expected.

The Route You Shaping Points are effectively not announced and the functionality as a route Planner Point remains so intact.

To know.

- In the Route You combination by "sym U-turn plus type Shaping or Via", the functionality as a route Planner Point is not preserved.

Locus navigation announces an imported U-turn but anyway the Locus route planner itself does not generate U-turns due to a Shaping or Via Point trigger. If one so want a U-turn announcement to be produced in the Locus route planner that specific instruction must be added in the <name>text in an announced Via Point.

This is because specifically the Locus route planner creates multiple consecutive single start-stop calculated individual "segments" between the Shaping or Via Points. These segments are than joined together into a gpx single trkseg track file .

"Quote". In the Route You combination by "sym U-turn plus type Shaping or Via", the functionality as a route Planner Point is not preserved.

Hi Menion.

Thanks again for that very fine functional newest realisation.

And it is currently already very convenient to be used this way.

Although I had planned it slightly differently, well to say a little bit ;-)

Namely.

That <type>Shaping or Via directly promotes a track point to a navigation waypoint, just like a corresponding correct <sym> does.

Advantage:

This would then make it so possible to import any<sym>.

Together with the <type> any<sym> as a stowaway would than enter Locus map.

Roger ?
