Route planer: Quick switch between distance and area measurement

druki shared this idea 2 years ago
Completed

I use route planing for different tasks:

- Planing a route

- measurement of certain area on map

To do so, I have to set the display of the bottom left info bar to the correct setting by:

1. Going to setting menu in route planer

2. go into sub setting

3. click the checkbox of area measurement

4. leave the menues


It would be easier and faster to just do one tap on the information bottom left in the infobar to switch between the measurement modes.

Please consider for version 4

With a long click on result (276m) only switch the result from m to m². The basic setting which value (m or m²) is displayed when starting the route planner. Should only be adjustable in the settings.

I like easy and clear tasks, thanks druki.

Will be implemented in the next version 3.52.2/4.0.0 with "long-click" (to prevent accidental clicks).

I tested it today. For me, the metric system is set. The route shows 64 m. When switching then 0.00 mi² is displayed. I think the miles are. Had also a larger route, then 0.02 mi² were then.

In the metriscen system m² would have to be displayed and from 10,000 m² would then have to be displayed km².

Yes, switching works fine for me. Thank you very much!


The conversion of square units is a different point. If regarded, maybe in the settings sound be merged as I don't think someone wants to use miles for distances and metric systems for areas. But who knows.

So maybe in the next step only improve automatic area units:

10m x 10m = 100m²=1ar

100m x 100m = 10000m²=1ha

1000m x 1000m = 1000000m² = 1km²

> followup improvement issue?

Hi guys,

thanks for the testing. There is no "automatic area units". Just set units you prefer in the app settings. There is quite long list for the area units, so the app can't detect automatically users prefered format.
