i have a idea for a new feature in the Mission planner.
I mostly use the Google Hybrid Map, which does show city names and street names.
Now, if i am going to my flying field (about 30 miles away from my home location) i want to have the map there with me in the mission planner too. i have no internet connection at the field.
So i use the prefetch function. but each time, i have to scroll around on the map, trying to find the field location.
Couldn't a search field be incorporated, where i write "street blablabla, san francisco" and the map jumps to the location? Basically just like using google maps, searching for a location.
That would be a handy little feature...
the easiest way is to turn on a map that has road and city names
This is a great Idea i also have two points where I flight and I also have to search it. A button with favorite points will be quite nice.
Agreed. Search is needed.
im adding a zoom to button, that shoudl take care of this
this is quite nice thx
Michael: I see this post is old, but I thought I would ask a question to gain a better understanding of your suggestion.
When you turn on a map that has road and city names on it, how do you actually "search" for the location? I don't see a field to enter a street address or location to zoom to.
right click > map tools > zoom to
Thank you Michael.
Once I find the location on the map by using the "zoom to" feature, how do I move the home location to that point? I want to create a mission before I get to a location 100 miles away and know where my home location will be at that point.
click in the lat box, then click on the map to set home.
