Include a coordinate in the note

(1/2) > >>

Hi,

do we need this checkbox?

'Include a coordinate in the note'
(in viewcache)

If the user doesn't enter a coordinate, we store 0/0 ...

Kind regards,
Oliver

Hi,

It's a usability issue. The checkbox makes it obvious to the user that the coordinate is optional.

Also, removing the coordinate is just a simple uncheck. Forcing the user to fill all the fields with zero is not user friendly.

the fields are already filled with zero ... so the user does not need to enter anything ... just commit ...

If the user has previously included a coordinate in the note, but no longer wants it. That's what I meant by removing the coordinate.

Schrottie:
If I have understand it correct, the checkbox for the coordinate also causes if there would be generated an additional waypoint in the gpx output or not. Is there only a note, the note would be outputted as cachelog (type: write note) in the gpx, is the coordinate checked, also the additional waypoint is outputted. Without the checkbox, a waypoint would be generated, whose coordinates are zero. Or is it a fallacy?  :-\
