# Measuring on the prepared track.

It happens me time a time that i need to know my distance from current position to destination mark on my path (both somewhere in the middle of my actual path). Because I want to know real path (not just a linear distance) I have to redraw the the part of track again.

What do I propose:

Add a option to tap on the path and select "Distance to this destination from my current position following current path".

I case I`m not on the path, Locus may measure distance to nearest point on the path and calculate the total distance as a sum of my distance to this point and the point`s distance from destination.

Well I see. So I can check how far is it to the pub when I follow the path simply just by clicking on the pub`s location. Nice

Currently there is only some manual measure:

Hover with the map center cross on each of the two points and calculate the difference of the distance from start of the track.

You are right, but this way is very uncomfortable. And if you want exact number You have to count for example 15,2 - 9,8. If You want measure more points You have unnecessary mathematic problem.

It's my problem too.

I have hiking paths broken down into tracks. I would like to choose multiple tracks to figure my hike for the day. Is there a way to do that?
