I suppose we have all used the new “notes” feature either to clear up something or to point out to other contributors that something is “probably” wrong and should be surveyed. Up to now I have only added notes and not solved any other issues.
Well, today, I decided to do my little bit and try to solve a few “notes”, but I could not: Why?
My equipment comprises a Garmin GPSmap 60CSx for locating, tracking and noting waypoints of OSM pertinent POIs. I have a Samsung Galaxy installed with OSMAnd+, which I use for viewing OSM Data, dictation and picture taking. Nothing out of the ordinary then, you all have similar equipment.
So my first thought was to transfer the notes (coordinates and text) in text form to the Galaxy: I could not find a methode so I gave that up.
Ok, no problem, I thought. I’ll make a text list on paper, i.e. download the coordinates and notes in text form and then enter the coordinates into the Garmin manually: I could not find a methode so I gave that up.
The only methode that I can think of is to write the coordinates and notes manually to a piece of paper. In my case that would have been about 20 notes. I would then have to enter the coordinates of the first “note” into the Garmin and navigate to these said coordinates, solve note 1 and repeat for note 2,3,4…….20.
Needless to say I did not start. I gave up!
Now some of you out there may have a good idea of how to do it. I can’t program so I am looking for a simple solution: i.e. Create waypoints for the Garmin which can be tranferred either using MapSource or EasyGPS. I could then sequentially navigate to each “note”, solve the issue by reading the “note” text from a piece of paper or on my Galaxy:
Anybody got any ideas! How do you go about/solve “note”-problems?
