Tiny, but hopefully useful compass on all maps. More options for the "navigate - search/browse" button.
While unifying all maps in the app, it was important to provide a unified map compass experience as well. Here is how this tiny map compass looks:
By default, this button now opens options for showing/hiding objects on a map, plus switching between "navigate" and "search/browse" mode:
In map search/browse mode, tap on a waypoint to reveal new option: Move:
Now you can move the map until red arrow points to the new waypoint location:
Screen elements to highlight here:
#1 - Waypoint that is being edited.
#2 - Red line from the original waypoint location to the new location.
#3 - Red arrow (in map center) showing new waypoint location.
#4 - Waypoint course/angle button. Shows/hides waypoint course/angle editor. In the image above course/angle editor is a gray circle around the new waypoint location. Tap anywhere in that gray circle to set waypoint approach angle/course. Tapping on this button #4 will hide the angle editor.
#5 - New in version 1.9.1 - geo coded address of a map center.
Bottom left red arrow button also gives you more options from version 1.9.1:
- Move to the current location
- Show/hide red arrow (map center) details. Red arrow details are: coordinates, distance from the current location, map or red arrow angle, geo coded address.
Use Cancel or Done buttons to cancel or confirm the waypoint move.
Same as above, use "Select" button in the waypoints list, select waypoints and use left bottom Action button to export the selected waypoints.
When you tap on a waypoint's annotation on a map and use Share option or when you use Share option from the waypoint editor screen, there is an extra option present - Export. This allows to export a single waypoint.
Until now Google map was only available for the main map screen - all other map screens used either Apple or Custom/Offline maps. This update brings Google map as the first class citizen to all map screens:
Waypoint editor, Track view, Trip tracks.
Only one feature that Google map doesn't support - coloring tracks by speed or altitude. You'll have to switch to Apple or Custom/Offline maps to use this feature, as before.
Support for KMZ import of waypoints. As KMZ export also packs photo and audio attachments for waypoints, this way allows you to transfer waypoints from one device to another without loss of any specific to the app information.
This is it for version 1.9.1, I'm back to adding new features for the next version! If you like the app and would not mind supporting it, please review or rate the app. As easy as tapping here and leaving me a few words! Yours, Stan, the dev.
