Managing / organizing route(-DB)

Good morning,

I would like to ask, how the others are doing there route managing.
With Garmin I organize the routes within BaseCamp.
But what is the common way to do it by using Kurviger?
Is it just exporting the route and storing the files somewhere?

BR
Tom

Hallo Tom,

ich importiere/exportiere mir meine Routen in Kurviger Web/App und lege Sie bei mir im Google Drive in verschiedene Ordner ab.Zum Beispiel Touren > Leipzig oder Touren>Bayerischer Wald, gefahrene Toruen>Erledigt. Hoffe das ich Deine Frage richtig verstanden habe.

Hello, Tom,

I import/export my routes in Kurviger Web/App and store them in my Google Drive in different folders, for example Tours > Leipzig or Tours>Bayerisacher Wald, gefahrene Toruen>Done. Hope that I have understood your question correctly.

That’s my workflow too - except I use Dropbox. The Dropbox-App on my smartphone gives me access to all routes for navigation with the Kurviger-App.

Folder based route organisation is the reason why I made some suggestions here und here to improve the way for quickly browsing through different route files.

To be able to do that a quick “file open”-method (placed directly in the left tool bar area) and a more exposed position of the main route infos (like length etc.) would be helpful.

Jup, for me too. Google drive, folder for every region and every vacation where I ride, then a Google doc with a big fat list of links

Since I am an “ancient” Garmin user, I have my entire “navigation history” in Basecamp and continue to use it.
The management of waypoints alone is only rudimentary from my point of view (until now) and is reason enough for me to stay at Basecamp.
Maybe in a later release there will be something like a user administration with DB at kurviger.

Da ich ein “uralter” Garmin-Anwender bin, habe ich meine gesamte “Navigations-Historie” in Basecamp und verwende das auch weiter.
Allein die Verwaltung von Waypoints ist aus meiner Sicht (bis jetzt) in kurviger nur rudimentär gelöst und ist für mich schon Grund genug bei Basecamp zu bleiben.
Vielleicht kommt ja in einem späteren Release noch so etwas wie eine User-Verwaltung mit DB bei kurviger.

Thanks a lot for the discussion. I understand the need for a DB to organize your routes. We plan to add something like this in the future though: App / Website: Profil mit Speicherung von Routen und Orten? - User Profile Feature?

I agree with that: we need more functionality for waypoints for a better organization (e.g. possibility to have names for waypoints like already discussed here).

This is the reason why I also use BaseCamp (and the MyRoute-app web-platform) to organize my personal route library. But it would be great if someday could do similar things only by using Kurviger.

They are already registered and the plan is to work on them one feature at a time.
Usually I prefer to finish first core needed features and then see external features.

Absolutely understandable. I also wouldn’t consider this features as “core” ones but “next level”. :wink:

I use Google sheets/speadsheet. This way add more info or notes to routes. I save the short url in one of the cells. Have over 150 routes in it now.

Thanks for the discussion :slight_smile:.

How are you usually working with your folders? Is it typically just one level of folders like:

[Area] > [Tour Name]

Or do you usually do multiple levels like:

[Year] > [Area] > [Some other folder] > [Tour Name]

Do you think one level is enough or do you need multiple levels?

Bei mir ist es Google Drive > Touren > “Area” zB Leipzig > Tourdatei.
FĂĽr meine Ăśbersichtlichkeit finde ich mehrere Ebenen besser.

For me it is Google Drive > Tours > “Area” e.g. Leipzig > Tourfile.
For my clarity I find several levels better.

Thanks for the feedback. But inside your [Tours] folder, you only need one more level for example [Leipzip]? Or do you think you need more?

Nein, mir reicht die Struktur so. Ich denke nicht das ich mehr brauche.

No, I’m fine with the structure this way. I don’t think I need more.

For me it’s
day tours vs holiday planning - done vs. not done - area - tour

I know this is weird :smiley: but I use the search function of drive to open everything anyway so… Might as well all be flat in one folder.

I guess tagging would be helpful for me, tagging and searching

Thanks for all your ideas and opinions how to store and organize the routing files.
That leads me to a further question or request:
To share the files with other devices or user I would like to configer a cloud space as export location within app.
Is this already possible?
