Reversing followed path

Postby dmitrym » 2017-11-20 19:47

Hi Zax,

Couldn't find it in the docs (http://www.duweis.com/support/viewdoc.h ... 030_follow) but what is the best way to reverse a followed path?

My use case is driving into the backcountry and then turning around and backtracking.


Gotta say after about a week of using your app it's probably the most powerful, polished and elegant mapping application I've seen on iOS.

How to reserve a path:

Before start, because the reversing would edit all timestamps of the original path, so it is suggested to make a copy of it for applying the edits.

1) Making a backup copy
Go to User Data > Select > select the path > operation > Copy To... > Pick a folder.
Then you may want to rename the copy as "XXX - Reverse" for easier distinguish.

2) Toggle the map to Edit mode
Backup main screen, tap the tool button > Edit, to toggle the map to edit mode

3) Reserve
Select the path on the map > tap "edit" in the popup toolbar > choose Reverse Path.
Done
