Waypoints on the route

Hi,
I found that during mountain hikes (which are the most exhausting), in places where the trail changes, a signpost-like point should be inserted (with a description: what direction, what hiking trail, number of km, etc.)
Of course, there are different points in Locus - can they be used for this purpose?
So I have a question:
When creating a route - is it possible to insert a point on it that will only be visible and associated with the route.

Hi,

there are guideposts in LoMaps:

f4de9365021d263eb5f6cf918c476c97

Each guidepost detail contains a link to the OSM database that informs about the trails the guidepost is on:

61767677a1d2599bbb5a2efed921361b

You can add the guideposts to your route when planning a trip:

Hi,
thanks for the reply but i didn't really mean it.
From what I can see on the screenshots, I don't have a link: more openstreetmap.org,
and even if the signpost icon appears in the mountains, it is not active. So there is already a problem with these signposts.
I would only prefer the points that show up when I want to use this route. Of course, these points would not only apply to route guidance, but could be viewpoints, natural monuments, etc.

Hi,

these guideposts are part of LoPoints that are available both online or offline (when you have LoMap of the area downloaded). All LoPoints contain the Opentreetmap.org link as they are rendered from the OSM database and all are dynamic (clickable), bearing a lot of meta information. Some also include Wikipedia descriptions and photos. LoPoints can be de/activated from the content panel on the left:

964656c85c4b2bef1105db7b2a1674ec

If you see guideposts that are a firm part of the map and are not dynamic, you probably use a different kind of map.

"I would only prefer the points that show up when I want to use this route."

- Locus Map provides only points that are active or inactive on the whole map, not just for an active route.

Hi,
it appears that LoPoints (network and local) have been disabled.
I know that the points work that way. For this reason, they cannot point to anything (because they are not assigned to a route), they only have an informational role.

"...points work that way. For this reason, they cannot point to anything (because they are not assigned to a route"

- in general, yes, they are just another layer of the map. But as I wrote two days ago, they can be added to the route in the route planner and voice navigation announces them in advance.
