#972 closed enhancement/feature request (worksforme)

"set marker" button

Reported by: benedikt bauer bb Owned by: Singesang
Priority: major Milestone: version 1.0
Component: osd/core Version: git master
Severity: Keywords: track point


I have done some longer trips with navit navigation within the last days. On each trip there were some points where the navigation did not work quite well. Either the information presented by map and speech did not fit reality or the directives given by the speech engine did not fit the route shown on the map. At this points I wished I had some feature where I can set a marker or bookmark to refind these points later at home and to check on openstreetmap, if it was a bug of the openstreetmap data or of the navigation engine.

I could imagine this feature as a maybe semitransparent button-like area on the map display that sets some kind of track point if it's hit. This would make it possible to set a use it while driving as one only has to shortly touch the screen to use it. Back at home (or where ever) one would need some menu point to display the track points one has set.

Ideally it would be possible to switch this feature on and off somewhere in the menu(default setting should be off that users with lower geek factor don't get confused).

Users with high geek factor already can do it. See map_add_curr_pos description and its sample at

Please reopen the ticket if you feel this solution to be requiring too high geek factor :)
