|Calculated Trip length of out & back trips #1842|
Back To Discussion List Written: 2007.04.09 by: Scott Nelson
I was thinking the other day that for out & back type trips the automated trip length calculator won't work properly, since people don't usually bother to enter the return waypoints. Maybe having a Out&Back = yes/no selection box in the TR entry window might be worthwhile. This could be used to double the calculated trip length.
Similarly, cumulative elevation gain could be calculated from the waypoints (using the @XXXXm part).
Basically I just wanted to throw these ideas out there as possibilities. I'm not strongly advocating for implementation.
