Feature Request: Importing Tracks: User can select Elevation

Post by tropisch » Tue May 24, 2022 7:39 am

Hi.
Request:
When importing tracks, the User shall be able to choose between the Elevation Provided by the file and the Elevation Provided by the App.

Reason for this request:
Some Track Files include 0 as elevation.
In this Case the App uses this 0 instead of the real elevation Data.

Workaround:
Manually remove the elevations in the track file before importing it.

Cheers
Michael

Hi,
I'll try to add this ability in the next update.
But those files should contain no elevation information instead of wrong elevations...

Thanks! This would be really nice.
I had another Homepage today providing Tracks with 0 Elevation data

i just saw you implemented it in the latest beta.
Very nice! Thanks a lot, It works perfectly.
For all those like me who didnt find it right away:
Import the waypoints right in the app:
Waypoints --> Download/whatever-folder/ --> long tap on the file --> import... --> Heights --> None
(may be little different in english since i use the german language).
