Selecting waypoints

In the waypoints screen (Menu > Waypoints) you can select waypoints and perform one of the following actions on the selected waypoints:

  • Remove selected waypoints

  • Move selected waypoints into a folder

  • Export selected waypoints

  • Load selected waypoints on the map

  • Change icon of selected waypoints

  • Remove selected waypoints from the map

Selecting waypoints is similar to selecting routes.

Opening selection screen

If you press the button ‘More’ on the top right of the waypoints screen, a menu will be shown as in the figure below.

Press ‘Select’ in the menu to open the selection screen. It is also possible to open the selection screen by pressing long on an item in the waypoint list. That item will then be selected immediately. An example of a selection screen is shown below:

Selecting waypoints

To select a waypoint, tap a waypoint item in the selection screen. A checkmark will show up and the background of the waypoint item will become grey to indicate that it is selected. An example in which two waypoints are selected is displayed below:

The title of the selection screen shows how many items are selected. You can deselect an waypoint tapping a selected one. If you want to select all waypoints in the list, you have to press ‘All’ on the top left. To return to the usual waypoints screen you have to press ‘Cancel’.

To quickly select multiple waypoints you can long press on a item, leave the finger on the list and then go up or down. In the same way you can quickly deselect multiple items.

Performing an action

If you have made a selection you can perform an action with one of the buttons in the toolbar on the bottom of the screen. The toolbar buttons are from left to right:

  • Trash button: If you press this button a pop-up will ask to to whether you would like to remove the selected waypoints from your device (and iCloud if enabled). If you press ‘Remove’ the selected waypoints will be removed.

  • Folder button: If you press this button a screen with the folder tree will be opened. You can select a folder and the selected waypoints will be moved to a new folder.

  • Export button: If you press this button the export pop-up will be shown. In this pop-up you can select the kind of data to be exported and change the export settings. If you press ‘Export’ in the export pop-up the selected waypoints will be exported. Another pop-up with apps and actions will be shown. If you tap an app or action, the result of the export will be handled by the app or action.

  • Map button: If you press this button, the selected waypoints will be loaded on the map. The map will zoom automatically to the selected waypoints and you will be returned to the map.

  • More button: If you press the more button in the bottom toolbar, a menu will appear from which you can choose the following actions:

    • Remove from map: If you press this button, the selected waypoints will be removed from the map.

    • Change icon: If you press this button the waypoint icons screen will be opened. You can press an icon in this screen to change the icon of the selected waypoints.

As an example we now will load the two selected waypoints from the example above on the map by pressing the map icon. The map screen will appear and the map will be zoomed to the two selected waypoints as you can see in the figure below:
