To save the changes you have to press ‘Save’ on the top right of the screen. You return to the waypoints details screen as you can see below:

Editing photos

By pressing the ‘Edit photos’ button in the edit pop-up you can add photos to the waypoint and remove photos from the waypoint. If you press this button the following screen will appear.

The photos screen if the waypoint does not have photos.

In the bottom toolbar of the photos screen you can find three buttons:

  • Map button: If you press this button you can import photos from your photo library to the waypoint.

  • Camera button: If you press this button the camera will be opened. If you take a photo it will be added to the waypoint. You could also use Menu > Camera for this, then a waypoint is automatically created at your current location and the taken photo is added to it.

  • Trash button: If you press this button you can remove the currently displayed photo from a waypoint.

If you have made changes to the photos of a waypoint you have to press ‘Done’ on the top right to save the changes. If you press ‘Cancel’ the photos will not be modified.

As an example we now will add a photo of ’Stonehenge’ from our photo library by pressing the map icon. An example of the screen that appears is displayed below:

In the photo library you can choose a photo. By pressing the photo it will be imported and added to the photos screen as you can see below.

Photos screen with photo Topo GPS

A photo of Stonehenge is added to the photos screen.

If you like you can add more photos from the library or using the camera. The added photos are always copied to Topo GPS. So removing the photo afterwards from your photo library does not remove the photo in Topo GPS. The resolution of the added photo can be set via ‘Menu > Settings > Camera > Photo size’. Larger photo sizes will require more disk space.

If you want to confirm the changes to the photos you have to press ‘Done’ on the top right of the photos screen. The changes will then be saved and the photo will be added to the waypoint.

You can view the added photos in the waypoint details screen as is illustrated in the figure below:

If you tap a photo in the waypoint details screen, the photo screen will be opened with a larger version of the tapped photo.

If you press ‘Edit’ on the top right you can modify the photos of the waypoint. If the waypoints has multiple photo’s, you can browse through the available photos by sliding the current photo to the left or to the right.

Editing coordinates
