Upcoming elevation gain

Hey guys!

In my opinion the upcoming elevation gain is one of the most useful information for both hikers and mountainbikers. I can see the information if i tap a track somewhere in the pop-up menu.

But i t would be very helpful, to see this information running continuously on the display.


Thanks,

Talbi

Yes i support your idea too. Maybe some expansion of the idea:

I was wondering if it's possible to display the following info during guidance along a track: What's the distance and vertical differences (exactly: the sum of elevation meters uphill, and the sum of elevation meters downhill) to the track's destination. Maybe additionally display the chart of the remaining track.

It's possible to get these infos for tracks without guidance turned on, you just have to click on the trackline

But i couldn't figure out how to display these infos for a track which I'm actually following by guidance:

Would it be possible to implement this in dashboard (and not only for navigation)?

I can't believe all the outdoor freaks are not interested in such feature!?

Elevation meters uphill (and also downhill) to the tracks destination is such a helpful information.

OP is absolutely right. This is also desperately needed in the track management, being able to sort by elevation gain (uphill). For everyone doing training, the most important information beside the track length.

+1 Would like to see this implemented, when navigation or guidance is active elevation profile graph is visible in the bottom, along with some POIs if track contains them.

Hello, yesterday I was doing a cycle tour using Locus to navigate to a final point. During the steep uphill part I wanted to know how many "Elevation loss" and "Elevation gain" still ahead of me, besides the horizontal distance to the finishing point when I click onto "Information". I couldn't get this information from my current location by clicking on the track line - just the overall values from the starting point of the route.

I've done some research, and there are already some other threads too which are proposing this feature or some similar feature using dashboard and/or Navigation top-menu to display these values, with in total quite a few "Likes". Would be a great improvement during Sports-Navigation if this would be implemented.

As a MTBiker, I also would love to have upcoming elevation gain/loss available in nav display and as dashboard items! After remaining track length, this is the second most important information we need when navigating a track.

As you have this information available in the popup when selecting a point on a track, I think it shouldn't be too difficult to make this information also available in dashboards/the navigation top bar? Is it?

Hi,

remaining elevation gain (both positive and negative) is displayed in the popup box when you tap the route on the main screen:

Thank you.

It would be much more convenient to have it as a dashboard item.

Could it be added to the list of dashboard items as an upgrade of the app.

I think this was discussed before, but I don't remember the conclusion.

@Locus-team: Could you please describe again, why it's not possible to add remaining elevation gain/loss as dashboard items? Locus clearly has no problem calculating these values and shows them on track popup and in tracks list.

Falco even implemented a way to overlay elevation gain using Locus API/Tasker, but it would be far more easy if this was builtin to Locus.

I think lots of sports enthusiasts ((mountain-)bikers, hikers, trailrunners?) would love to have these values in dashboards.

Maybe the problem is the discrepancy between theoretical values from the track and the live values from gps recording which are only corrected (if configured) after the track recording?

Thanks! It seems there was no definite answer from Locus-team in this discussion (and the others referenced there), either?
