Modify track no "response" when pointing to a point

Hello


Thank's for this amazing good application!


Sometimes a do a "ruff" quick route by hand. Later on I want to "Insert/edit trackpoint more accurate.

I now have tested on three different mobilephones and one tablet.

Installed versions: LOCUS 3.25.0 and LOCUS 3.25.1.

Android versions Android, 5.1 - 5.0.1 - 5.1.1 - 7.1.1.

When editing - neither of them reacts like in earlier version when I am pointing onto a trackpoint in order to edit/ move it. It seems like the "sensitive"circle around the point is too narrow or at least to unclear.

The solution for me is startover and begin with a new route and try to be accurate from the beginning which is not ideal.

Thanks in advance

Good day Göran,

I'm glad you like and use Locus Map app!


During last few months, we are working on completely new separate screen with route planner feature. What happen you, is probably side effect of many changes. I'll check touch area of these points, anyway in new planner with be undo/redo buttons, so problems that happen by accident movements or change of points will be easily fixed by "undo" button.


Thanks for a feedback!

Hi again

Has installed new version 3.25.2

Just a quick comment - not for all improvement as you did - but only the matter we discuss here. I can't see any change in the matter. When I try to a see point in editing a track, there is on reaction as there have been some times ago. I can't focus on it. I have to point at a green point and after some try I can edit location via "edit location" and "select on map". A long way around and not as good as before. Sorry to "bother" with this. /best from Göran

Sorry: it should be: ". When I try to focus at a RED point in editing a track, there is on reaction.

Good evening Göran,

may you describe it a little better? When you place two "green" points on map (connected by line), you should be able to grab both green or a red point (in the middle) and move it where you need. This does not work for you as expected?

Oh you are quick, very quick to answer - thank-you! Appreciate this.


To begin I would like to notice you that I am using Locus - often - when I am drawing "ruff" routes for my boating at lake Vänern in Sweden. After the "ruff" one I examine the track and do changes in order to avoid ground and stones, etc. The editing - I've done this for some years - and do like Locus cause it has been so easy to manage by just "point and drag" a point. No matter green or red points.


After that I export the track to my Garmin plotter in the format of gpx.

Now this isn't as smoth any longer - sorry to say.


1 activate a track. Modify track

2 insert/edit trackpoint. Chosing a red point - no response

3 have to chose a green point. In the alert window I can chose the track or the point, so I chose the point

4 edit location or delete. I chose edit

5 in next window I chose select on map

6 back on map I can choose a new place for the point. Puuhhh


Do I do anything wrong? This isn't as good as just grab any point and just move it.

Good day Göran,

I'm little confused as there should be no bigger change in latest version(s) compare to previous system.


Are we talking about these green and red points like on this screenshot? If so, then red dots were never clickable, but you may drag them by finger. You may click on green dots and remove them or set precise location, or also drag with fingers.

You wrote in second point "no response". This mean that red dot does not react on click ( which is correct ) or it even does not react on drag? By drag I mean just one tap on map on point and finger still kept on screen, moving on wanted place.

Sorry if I write like for "small child". My English is not perfect and I want to describe it in detail.

Good morning Göran,

sure I sleep .. not much :).

Anyway it looks that it works, but it is just a little hard to correctly select and drag a point right? It is correct that selection was little changes and maybe a touch area is now a little smaller. I'll test it little more, but no one except you complains on this, which was till now confirmation that it's ok.

As I wrote before, we are currently working on completely new route planner, so please live with current system for next few months and if there will be any problem in new planner, let me know. Thank you!

Hello again Menion

Now I have used the new routeplanner for a while.

I feel more and more comfortable with it.

Now to a reflection:

* I have drawn a route manually between some existing points. Afterwards I want to change it a bit and start with "modify track" and the ""track editor" starts with it's facilities. But... my predefined points disappears!

Bad, because I miss some references. 

The points/references appears again when I finish editing.

Is it possible to "fix it"?

Best from​ Goran

Good day,

are you correctly writing about "Track editor"? Because for some post-editing of previously planner routes, you should still use "Route planner". Simply click on any existing track/route and from menu select "Route planner".

Hello

Ok, I try that one

Another try wit a new "route". I save it. I want to change some of the points and I choose "Routeplanner".

I do my changes and I just want to save the particular track (route) with the same name in the same folder. The option is to give it a new name... If I don't remember the existing name and want to overwrite it - I now have two routes and have to delete the other one. 

Even if I remember the original name, I get two files with the same name and aI still have to delete on of them

All this is a little to much confusing...

Why can't I just use the "Modify track" and save it - AND - be able to see my own Points while editing

Thank's

Göran

Hello again..

Sorry to interrupt your steady work to make better and better performance for us users.

About the "routeplanner", which you want me to use when editing a recorded track:

I'm sorry - again - to say I can't get familiar to it. This day I went a trip for some kilometers and now I just want to edit the recorded track. Move some points to a different position while I still can see my own points at the same time.

On the track there is now two defined shapingpoints: 1 start and 2 stop.

I now want to move some of the points between.

I start to point to a specific part, "trackpoint" and while pushing again I get a new "shapingpoint" with the number 3. I regret it and instead point at the menuarrow and get the question: "change to navigation or shapingpoint?"  I choose shapingpoint. Now I try to move it. The whole track is deformed into three   straight lines...

Another option is to "edit location". A slow way to do it.

Sorry this is not a way to work for me

As I mentioned before in earlier mail: the tools in the track editor is sufficient. Just want to be able to se my own points of interest at the same time while editing. Like it has been in earlier version.

This would be great.

Is it possible?

Good day,

I was never writing that for fixing some problems of recorded tracks should be used Route planner!! Exactly for these cases is made Track editor.

You wrote that you wants to move some recorded points to better place, this may be easily done in track editor. Why in these cases you need to see also your other points? You recorded a track and now you wants to fix this recorded track, so why should I need to see some other data on map, when it will only slow and complicate my "editing task"?

I was referring to a mail from 1 November:

Menion"

........................

To the subject:

As it was in earlier version I could se my predefined points and "connect " the track to this points - very handy. I still will be able to do this directly from the map. It would be nice

Hello,

yes, but I was reacting on your "I have drawn a route manually between some existing points", so I was reacting on fact, that you was modifiing manually created track in app, where we should expect that you will use it later for navigation or sharing with friends. Editing track after recording to fix some problems caused by GPS, is completely different use-case.


Anyway I understand you point. Task is simple: Display already visible points/tracks also in track editor. As I see in list of topics tagged with "track editor", there is no such topic, so for me it means there is no interest in such feature, sorry.

Adjusting a Point.


It often happens that GPS is not accurate.

When you are passing through a favorite point, the tracking is passing outside the Point.

When you afterwards try to adjust the track so that it goes straight through the point, the Point disappears.

Not good.

There is also no option to choose another saved Point.


I would be very grateful to onceagain have the opportunity to see all my chosen points while using "Modify track"

Hello Göran,

have to say I'm little lost in more than year old conversation.

May you please attach some screenshot or something that may better explain this problem/topic? Thanks

Hello Menion

Thank’s for quick response

Ok. Here’s  the problem/ my wish

The first picture is showing track and desired Point.

Depending on bad GPS for that moment, the track is not so precise and afterwards,  at home, I want to move som Points in the track to meet the desired Point

… but…

the Point is not shown and I can’t know where to move Points.

Like in some older version of Locus – before we got the fantastic ”Route Planner” – you could move Points in a track to existing Points of interest. You could see them at the same time while ”Modifying”

I would appreciate this ability again, very much.

Perhaps with a On/Off Setting in ”Maps/Advances features”  and choose ”On/Off” or something alike

Thank’s for Your understanding and I hope You can rest a while ’cause now it’s saturday evening 😊
