Hi Jack,


Locus has funciton POI alert (Menu > Functions > POI alert). You can define distance and type of notification from POI (Point of interest). Detailed information you can find here: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/manu...

Hello Kurt,


currently there are no such plans. I renamed your question a little and changed to idea, so we`ll see how much people is interested in this idea

I`m usually leaving ideas without response. Number of votes may show a lot if I do not have clear opinion, like in this case.


For now, I have to say sorry, it`s not planned even for a Locus GIS

Oh come on... It`s almost the same as POI alarm just for polygons... ;)

Matthias, such library is not needed, I already have needed equipment in Locus.


Anyway instead of showing me "How to do it", I rather hear "Why to do it". Such alerts on areas during hiking & biking & geocaching & etc? Why?

Very useful to know when you enter area of interest without looking constantly on display. In my case geological work but really can be anything

to disable credit card when wife walks into the mall or to keep me away from the fridge :-)
