Some improvements with follow Tracks

Post  Breenild on Thu Jun 23, 2011 11:55 pm

Hello Orux,

thanks for this nice App!
I have some wishes for future Releases, but I don't now if this were not already implemented.

First of all I don't know the benefit of the Segments which are already in OM.

I have some Ideas to use them:
During Track recording I want to have a Hotkey (e.g. the Search Button, or a special, easy to hit Button on the Display) to create a new Segment without to enter any Informations.

My Idea is, that a Route constists of many Waypoints, to modellize my Track along the corners of the Roads, Way's etc. And I have a few Segments, to describe the positions, where the route will leave the actual Road. Positions where i have to pay attention.

After the track creation i will drive my route.
The Waypoints only will used to draw the track on the Map, but no further action.
But before I reach a Segment Point, the App will play a Sound, so I can look on the Display, what is to do. (turn left or right, etc).
Further I want to see the Distance to the next Segment point and the Distance to End of Track on my Dashboard.

And last it will be nice, to add Segment points afterwards to an existing, downloaded or recorded Route.

I hope you understand my bad english and you may implement this to your APP, if it isn't already in Wink

Hi, Sorry;

Segments are part of the gpx standard.

Logically serve to separate sections of the same track, for example, on a trip of several days, one segment per day. Or when you stop and you do not want to record during stop time, or to separate sections of a track in xx miles, or every xx minutes, using 'auto segment' feature, for example, if you want to know your pace per mile or minute.

I think you should use wpts to score significative points, not segments. The segments are a set of points of continuous tracks.
