Line style with GSM mobile coverage

Hi, would it be possible to add a new element to the line style when recording a route? What I mean is to be able to include GSM mobile network coverage. This is a very useful tool in areas with poor coverage so that in case of an urgent need to make a call you know where on the route you last had coverage. In some places it is also not available to call the emergency numbers and this would be important for those of us who practice mountain activities.

I will admit that such a mobile network coverage option would be very helpful. Currently, walking in the mountains I have marked points where I have mobile network coverage. If it were possible to somehow implement it so that Locus dynamically retrieves information about mobile network coverage from the Phone and it would be very helpful.

One possibility would be via Tasker. It can then send a warning tone or ..... as soon as mobile radio is present. Tasker also works with Locus. Here there is the possibility at the beginning and at the end of the cellular coverage, to automatically generate a point in the track. It is also possible to change the track color (default via Tasker). There are many functions Locus-Tasker and very many in Tasker.

Hi! With the Locus tasker plug-in is it able to draw the line in colors according to network coverage?
