Kilometer marks on track/route

would be nice to have a feature to show kilometer marks on the track dislplayed on the Locus screen. Similar to what you can swith on/off in GPSies. This could be a customizable feature (how frequent the marks are displayed, distance between marks, km/miles, etc.) that would also depend on zoom level.


This feature might come in handy if your route/track for several days is just one long line and you would like to understand where you probably be in some hours knowing your average speed (i.e., decide on when/where before sunset you are going to stop for the day and make a camp). For bicyclists this might be especially handy

This!


Now that Brouter integration in Locus seems to be rock stable, would'nt this be the ultimate summer gift from team Locus to the community?

Let's vote!

And also would be useful to have "Time markers", and to see these markers not only for the recorded tracks but for the current as well

Ah yes, both time markers and distance markers would be most valuable.

46 votes and no implementation yet?

This feature is needed urgently. Not only for estimating the distance but for pointing the right sequence where the track crosses itself or in loops...

@menion - any progress?

Hello Christian,

sorry, no progress here. Agree that 48 (now) votes and the fact, that this isn't the most complicated task, sounds interesting.

We currently have some important tasks in-progress, but I'll add this with higher priority to my personal queue and we will see ;).

Didn't know this option before. Thanks for pointing that out.

The "problem" here is, if you leave the map view and go back into it, the markers are gone. Or am i missing something?

Yep, youre right, its a temprary thing. Perhaps a quick fix would be to add distance as a colouring option like speed etc line drawing options, using the same drawing process as the interval markings, this would then be permanent.

I wouldn't want to replace existing track color with a distance color. My suggestion are distinct distance markers like in RideWithGps as shown...482ba83011ada2a2d1194483d91c975d

So we found out that Locus is able to show distance markers, but in an inconvenient way. It's nice to know some workarounds (thanks Alistair Parsons) but I would like to ask the Locus team to check out the options for adding a nice and usable way here. Like Andrey Batashov did 5 years ago :)
