Thanks for the suggestion Willy, but we're not planning on making any more changes to downloads for a while I'm afraid, as we want to focus on some other areas.
Sorry I accidentally deleted the photo. New attempt.
Suggest to add additional best match Garmin tcx_fit PointType & gpx sym support that do correspond with existing Plotaroute Icons.
Find in the greyed cells in attached picture.
Thanks for flagging this up Willy. It's been fixed now.
Route Planner function > Select a symbol to use > Plotaroute 'Mountain".
In tcx download PointType "Summit" is correctly set.
In gpx download sym "Summit" is not set. (Flag, Blue)
(Gpx sym "Summit" is supported by Garmin).
Hi Bert - yes, see our tip for how to add symbols and labels to a map.
Is it possible to put extra turn labels on the map?
Hi John, sure understand, and absolutely agree with your point of view.
Even Garmin hardware do not support the full range symbol list ;-)
Locus map support most of the Garmin Icon list.
Unsupported <sym> are displayed by the default "Red Down Arrow".
Hi Willy - I don't think we would be able to offer the full range of Garmin symbols, but we could look at using Garmin symbols that match our existing symbols rather than always using the default symbol for each waypoint. As mentioned in my reply to your other post, I'll see if we can do this as part of the changes we're making at the moment.
But how to add Labels and Symbols on the mobile gps (app) ?
By use of gpx <name><cmt><desc> AND <sym>text many compatible gps (or app) do display Garmin Icons. (Unsupported <sym> by the mobile gps (app) are replaced by a default Icon)
Request: Add the standard Garmin Icon (popular) range by <sym>text into Plotaroute Symbols.
