Kurviger 1.14.12 (Beta)

I just noticed that the “Biker Cafe / Meeting Place” overlay in the “Map layers”
menu is not available anymore. When and where did this go? :fearful:


Map layers in app remain the same as always.

The POI list with the OpenStreetMap tags is here:

I mean the same as the "Biker Cafe / Meeting Place” (“Bikertreff” in German) on the Kurviger website.
For some reason I thought this was already in the app as well. Checking on OpenStreetMap.org,
I don’t see the tag which is connected to that information, unfortunately.

Bikertreff gab/gibt es bisher nicht in der App

Biker Cafe / Meeting Place did not/does not exist in the app

Hi devs.

Congrats! Via and Shaping point transfers by the gpx type tag available in the Kurviger app.
Before I unsuccesfully promoted this simple method by type in other app new idea forum section.
So now I already successfully tested such transfers by gpx using the latest (Beta) Kurviger app.

Although I was quietly hoping the use of type text Shape instead of Shaping.
To keep compatibility now must change my text suggestions and all my example files in that other app New Idea forum section ? Phew …
Or no, I won’t change it anymore. Some gpx extra fragmentation only a little annoying for optimal information exchange between apps, possibly nobody is concerned about that. :flushed:
The freedom gpx offers naturally contributes to fragmentation by dialects.

Perhaps I misunderstood, but I expected to see a difference in GPX depending on kind of waypoint (via point / shaping point).
I used a test route https://kurv.gr/znwGM and exported it to all available GPX formats - but I can not see a difference between Waypoint 1 (via) and waypoint 2/3 (shaping)
TstViaShaping (2).gpx (2,1 KB)
TstViaShaping.gpx (1,2 KB)
TstViaShaping (1).gpx (982 Bytes)

Can you also mention what format each GPX file is?

Did you check the “shaping points” in export dialog?

Shame on me!
I will check, try again and give feedback! :confused:

With checking “Shaping points” in export dialog I see differences:

  • GPX and GPX offline: Tag ‘type’ is ‘via’ or ‘shaping’
  • Garmin: Tag ‘sym’ is ‘Flag, Blue’ or ‘Waypoint’

TstViaShaping.gpx (1,2 KB)
TstViaShapingOffline.gpx (1000 Bytes)
TstViaShapingGarmin.gpx (2,2 KB)

Thanks for the help!

Probably the shaping points check box should be selected by default?


Just to be precise I have to correct:

  • GPX and GPX offline: Tag ‘type’ is ‘via’ or ‘shaping’
  • All exports: Tag ‘sym’ is ‘Flag, Blue’ or ‘Waypoint’

From my point of view : Yes.

Did you find some error?

App exports internally / offline only the Kurviger and the GPX (offline) formats.

All other route formats are exported externally / online via the Kurviger server.
(and they should be the same)

No, no error - I think it is intentional that there is no ‘sym’ tag in the Garmin export.
There is just a finding concerning given names - they appear in offline export but do not appear in the online exports (GPX), but I am not sure if that is implemented already . Example with given names for start, waypoints and destination:

TstViaShapingNameGarmin.gpx (69,9 KB)
TstViaShapingName.gpx (68,6 KB)
TstViaShapingNameOffline.gpx (48,0 KB)

Waypoint 1 in GPX Exports:

<rtept lat="48.877174" lon="11.711955"><name>Waypoint 1</name><desc>Waypoint 1</desc><sym>Flag, Blue</sym><type>via</type></rtept>

<rtept lat="48.877174" lon="11.711955"><name>Waypoint 1</name><desc>Waypoint 1</desc><sym>Flag, Blue</sym>

<rtept lat="48.876854" lon="11.712254">
<name>Erster: Via</name>
<sym>Flag, Blue</sym>

Creating a route in app with waypoints names, they are exported even in online formats.

How did you make the test?
