Re-arrange POI text string to show distance, name then direction and poi type [PATCH]

Reported by: korrosa Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.6.0
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: Keywords: dialog, ui, menu


Something I find slightly annoying is the way the text string works in the POI list of a default Navit setup. POIs are shown in the following manner:

[distance to poi] [direction to poi] [poi type] [poi name]

Personally, I think the POI name is far more important than both direction and type, especially as Navit provides some simple type filters anyway.

The attached patch re-arranges the order of the text string, so that it shows:

[distance to poi] [poi name] ([direction to poi] [poi type])

The distance is shown first, then the name, and then (in brackets) the direction and poi type. This can be seen in the first screenshot.

The patch also re-arranges the text string shown in the 'url' bar (or whatever it's called), so that when a POI is clicked, it's name appears first, followed by the type (in brackets). This is shown in the second screenshot.

As I say, this is more of a personal preference, but I thought I'd share in case anyone else is like me! :)

  • Keywords dialog ui menu added
  • Milestone set to version 0.6.0

Was this patch added already?

IMHO finetuning the POI dialogs is a more complex process, where we need to ask ourself, what the user might expect from our dialogs and take multiple usecases into account: The focus on usability will be the next major release.
