It would be useful if there is an easy way to see the distance between your actual position up to a point in track, that is, distance between two points in track you`re following. Usually I do it subtracting the distance to the end of the two desired points.
Tool to measure distance between 2 trackpoints along the track
It would be nice to have a way to measure the distance between 2 trackpoints of a track, but not just with a straight line, as it's already possible. It should compute the distance along track. This is much more precise.
Actually I do this by subtracting the "to end" distances from the 2 trackpoints I get from information screen of each trackpoint. It would save a lot of time and avoid user doing math.
No need to be fancy. It could work like the tool "cut part of track" in the "Edit on map". Select the first trackpoint, select the second and it would show distance, time diference, altitude variation, etc.
As a plus, it could use the nearest trackpoint of the current position as the first trackpoint and the nearest trackpoint of a selected POI for the second trackpoint.
It would be useful when Hikking and following a pre-recorded track. Suppose I want to know how much distance I have to walk until I reach a known place with water or a POI. This way, I just have to use the tool to compute it quickly, instead of estimating from a straight line or subtracting distances from trackpoint information.
I would happily write an addon to do that, if it's possible.
Thanks in advance!
