Quick New Point

Available only with Premium


The quick new point is designed for situations when you need to add more identical points repeatedly during a time period.

1. Define a new quick point

Before adding a quick point it is necessary to define it - point definition enables easy sorting points into logical groups:

  • Menu > All features > Points > Quick new point >
  • a new quick point definition dialog opens:
  • Title of the definition - optional, can be left empty
  • Storage - either a point folder - you can use already an existing or create a new one - or the quick point can be saved as a part of track recording
  • Icon & Name - points can have their designated icon (otherwise they will inherit the folder icon). The name can include special parameters (tap button):
    • {c} - inserts a counter of points in folder
    • {c1} - inserts any increasing number
    • {t} - inserts a time stamp
    • {text} - enables inserting editable text before saving
  • Description - optional description of the point

If you want to share the definitions they are stored in /Locus/data/config/ file.

2. Add quick points on map

  • Center your location or shift the map cursor to the location where you want to place the point.
  • Call Quick new point function - Menu > More functions > Quick new point and tap on a previously created point definition

It is very handy to place the Quick new point button into the function panel >> to call the feature immediately.

Organizing definitions

It is possible to edit, move or delete quick point definitions:

  • Long-press the definition icon and select from popup menu of actions:
