Often you have a route which is a roundtrip (maybe downloaded somewhere or received from a friend) you want to drive.
But due to the fact you’ll start from another location, you want to rearrange the route by setting one of the waypoint as the new starting point and then arrange all the other points accordingly (keeping the same order as before, but with the selected waypoint as starting point).
That would be a very helpful function for the Kurviger app (or website).
Yes, I noticed that when I tested the function yesterday. No connection / routing between the new starting and and end points (which is in fact reasonable). In my opinion it’s still absolutely OK this way, because shifting ALL the waypoint into a new order would be pain (which is the reason why I’m looking forward to have it in the app too, in the future).
working with https://kurviger.de
this feature is the most needed feature when I work with gpx files as round trips from other Websites to adjust them to my starting and end point (I.e. my home or temporary hotel)
Here my way (algorithm, it is still a pain):
Set two addition way points near start and end point
I look up which is the point number that is nearby my personal startpoint (i.e. home or hotel).
Then I decide based on the number if I have to move the actual second way point to the second last or vice versa
Do the moves as much as needed
Then I delete the start and the end point
The new start will be the former second way point and the new end point will be the former second last endpoint
The rearrangement is done
Then I add my personal start point as new endpoint to the route (to get back to home or hotel)
Save the route and Export it to my Navi.
I guess that the from Robin described way to set the start and end point would even reduce the effort. An algorithm from step 1 to 7 would be great in order to reduce tour planning effort for me.
In a new feature on the website I only see a Button and a field where I fill in the new starting point😉
you understood my completly right. This is the solution to reduce the effort of rearranging imported routes. You save me a lot of time in the future. It even works on my iOS mobile phone.
Thanks a lot
