Quick routing profiles

Hello, I got this useful idea:

Add to all navigation dialogs (standard navigation + create track) quick dropdown picker for routing preset.

My idea is routing preset would consist of three defines:

  • routing provider (required)
  • routing service preferences (only if supported by provider)
  • route calculation optimization (car fastest, car nearest, by foot etc.) - optional - route optimization could be still selected in navigation dialogue if undefined in preset. if defined in preset, the navigation dialogue could autoconfirm as the routing specification is complete.

Examples of routing presets -

  • MapQuest + Avoid paid motorways + avoid unpaved paths + car fastest
  • MapQuest + Avoid paid motorways + avoid unpaved paths + car shortest
  • MapQuest + Avoid paid motorways + avoid limited access motorways + bike
  • MapQuest + Avoid paid motorways + avoid limited access motorways + by foot
  • GraphHopper + bike shortest
  • GraphHopper + by foot
  • GraphHopper only (user chooses calculation from navigation dialogue)

Reason: I'm changing routing providers and options fairly often, when creating track and wanting to change routing Example of changing service when creating track: tap navigation icon, tap navigation settings icon, tap calculating source, choose different provider, tap on routing options, check/uncheck boxes, tap Set, press back, Tap navigation icon again, tap on calculating profile .... alot of tapping

With routing profiles this could look like tap on navigation icon, tap on routing presets dropdown, confirm dialogue (optionally - choosing fully defined preset from dropdown can confirm and autoclose the dialog quickly)
