Reverse a track

Thomas K. shared this idea 7 years ago
Completed

I can use guiding to go a track backwards. But I almost show the track in the mode "height differences" (great feature!). And these height differences are calculated for going the track forward.


So it would be nice, if there would be a possibility to reverse the track. (May added to the tool-button of a track.)

Currently it's possible to create a copy of track, but in same direction.


Because there is a lot of problems with using original track as a reverse track, best possibility seems to be create a copy & reverse.


So "implemented" ;)


In next version will be possibility to create a copy of track with reversed order, just by tapping on a "Create copy" button and checking "Reverse order", checkbox button.

hi Kriss,


you mean a voice navigation? I was thinking about it but problem for me are roundabouts. I have no idea how to compute number at which turn right from roundabout in opposite direction. Because of this, reverse navigation is not possible ... now

Is the problem really with roundabouts?


Maybe I overlook something but if a roundabout has e exits, in the forward direction you take the f`th exit, then you should take the r=e-f exit.


I think there are much more problems with one-way roads, highways etc. which would possibly result in really dangerous navigation instructions (e.g. take the exit of a highway when you want to enter it).


Anyway, I think a real reverse navigation is almost impossible to achieve with the informations from the original direction only.

Hi Menion thanks for replying.


Sorry for the explanation but to clarify my demand it is about guiding on track segment and track point (not in a car but hicking).


When we import a .gpx or we create a .gpx it is defined from a starting point A to B.


My demand is to be able to modify this track to reverse it be from B to A when we are in the tracks screen.


Regards,


Chris

Hmm you`re of course right Tommy, first think (and as you see also last) I was thinking about was roundabouts :), and because I don`t know total number of exits, it`s not possible to compute exit in oposite direction.


And Kriss, if you want just this, tap on track on map and press "Guide on reverse". Is this what you`re looking for?


EDIT: sorry sorry, my mistake. You already know this feature, but you want to reverse all stats etc. thanks to reversing order of points in database. understand ...

Hi Menion yes I just want to reverse the sens of a trackseg.


Sometimes I download some gpx with trackseg and I know I will follow this trackseg in the reverse order.


I think it me must be interresting to reverse this track inside the Locus app.


And if the track got timestamp data in it is not important to conserve it.


For example:


A track like this one:


<trk>


<trkseg>


<trkpt lat="X1" lon="Y1" />


<trkpt lat="X2" lon="Y2" />


<trkpt lat="X3" lon="Y3" />


<trkpt lat="X4" lon="Y4" />


<trkpt lat="X5" lon="Y5" />


</trkseg>


</trk>


will become like this after reversing it .


<trk>


<trkseg>


<trkpt lat="X5" lon="Y5" />


<trkpt lat="X4" lon="Y4" />


<trkpt lat="X3" lon="Y3" />


<trkpt lat="X2" lon="Y2" />


<trkpt lat="X1" lon="Y1" />


</trkseg>


</trk>


I think this is the way like it works when we reverse a trkseg ?

Any hints?

currently no, sorry.


For simple guiding, there already exists guiding in reverse order. This question is about ability to reverse statistics and order of points in charts etc ... because I currently not see big usage in this feature and also number of votes don`t say, it`s really "wanted" feature, I`m not planning to do it right now

hey Menion

missing a merged idea(comment) from an other user here.


or it's a new "use response" problem? :)

Hmm if you don't see them, then yes. They are probably visible only to admins.

Good day Javier,


may you please describe your idea a little more? Unfortunately for me isn't clear "What should be improved" :). Thank you.

I support this idea because it would be very helpful when you create or import a track and than copy the track and reverse the track direction than merge the track with the original one. After that 3-tap-operation you have the way and way back with all the basic data / statistics like length and altitudes (time stamps are doesnt matter).

This abilitiy would Locus bring to a higher priority instead of using additional other tools.
