Support » Plugin: Waymark » More accurate location possible?

    Thanks for the fantastic module. I want to use it for walking routes. So that people can retrace the route. The problem is that “show where I am” (the blue dot) doesn’t exactly go on the route. My routes are often in the forest and not on main roads. It seems that the “blue dot” is placed on the nearest main roads. Is there a solution that people can follow my marked route in the forest in this way. So that the exact location is displayed.Sometimes the blue dot is more than 3 kilometers from the route. I hope it is possible and thank you in advance for the help

    Hi @edwinfr,

    Thanks for reaching out. This issue was reported to me by another user (@coloursign) some time ago, but I was unable to replicate it at the time.

    After reading this I tested while in a remote area and saw the inaccuracy myself. I am currently looking into this and hope to post back here soon.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Hi Joe, thank you for your answer. I hope there is a solution then it would be the perfect module for me. Can I support you somewhere with a donation or if you want I also want to pay for the hours you think you need. Keep up the good work!

    Hi @edwinfr,

    I have created a new beta release of the plugin, which I believe fixes this issue. Please can you test this and confirm?

    You can download the release here.

    In order to install this version you will need to either manually install it, or use a plugin that allows you to upload it through the WP Admin.

    I STRONGLY suggest backing up your install before activating beta releases, especially on production sites!

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Hi Joe, Yes it works exactly the way I wanted πŸ™‚ Thank you very much for your work. Do you have a paypal account where I can deposit something for a few cups of coffee to thank you. Best regards, Edwin

    Hi @edwinfr,

    Great news! πŸ™‚ I hope to release the next version of the plugin, which includes this fix in the near future.

    Coffee was used during the process of this fix, but the review you left is ample payment.

    Cheers,

    Joe
