  1. Increase the area/filesize of maps sent to GPS units to the maximum that the GPS can handle.

    Increase the area/filesize of maps sent to GPS units to the maximum that the GPS can handle. The maximum size was decreased from version 10 to version 11 even though it was not hitting the limit of my GPS (Garmin Oregon 450).

  2. Need a sliding intensity scale for viewing or printing merged maps.

    In TNP 11.x, The current best “merged SAR view” that is not too dark (viewing or printing), and that you can still see most all the topo lines is: Select “topo”, then merged with the “Aerial Ortho Enhanced”……………..all the topo lines are still visible, and the sat view is the lightest………………………..All the other combos give a very dark image merge with most topo lines unable to really be seen.In all cases using Sartopo or Mission Manager, I find I always lighten the sat/aerial view to see the topo better, but at the same time can see the open spaces/buildings….. So…

  3. show all nearby markers and permit drawing a route between markers from a list of imported markers

    As it is creating a route from imported markers/waypoints is an extremely frustrating and time consuming chore. There is no show all markers feature nor show all nearby markers feature (i.e. within the coordinates of the currently active map) and there is no look ahead to the next/nearest marker/waypoint which would be very helpful as well. There is also no feature to select a group of markers from the list and make a new route listing of them. Currently this all has to be done one marker/waypoint at a time and there is a good deal of going back and…

  4. Options for what populates the track title field

    It would be great if I could change what populates the track title field? Right now, when I create a track from a parcel, the track title field is automatically populated with the parcel number. I would like it to populate with the owner name instead. Actually, both would be ideal.

  5. Auto scroll to typed character

    In the "Find.Marker" dialogue box (and other search dialogue boxes), I'd like to be able to type the first letter of a marker name (similar to the "Find.City/Town search dialogue box). For example, in Find.City/Town, if an "S" is typed, it automatically scrolls to the first city/town that begins with "S". This is a pretty standard feature in many search boxes. It's a bit of a pain to scroll through my
    hundreds of markers each time. I requested this years ago.

  6. Export/Import in the MapInfo TAB format

    Please add this capability. I've used MapInfo GIS for many years. It would save a good bit of time to be able to bring my GPS data straight across from TNPro

  7. Sync additional data including labels, marker configuration, etc.

    My usage case of TNP requires labels and marker configuration (size, icon, color, etc) to be synced. Can this be added? If not, I will have to request a refund. Thank you.

  8. Distance tool Geotip

    When using a distance tool, it would be nice to have more than one unit displayed in the Geotip instead of having to go to "information" to see more than one unit. I'd like the Geotip to show feet AND miles, for example.

  9. Add ability to change default label "pointer" position

    We label our search segments on the map itself, but the polygon's Name text is too small and not the color we desire. As a workaround we use the Label tool, creating a Label of our desired font that has no background. That is all Defaultable, but the catch is we then have to reposition each label to prevent the numbers from "scattering" out of their search segments when the zoom level changes.

    By this I mean, every time we place a Label, we must then either move the label text box over the pointer (and resize it to its…

  10. Prompt Project window on launch

    In the haste of setting up our command trailer, booting computers, launching software, and getting a map started, it is a common occurrence for our team to accidentally start working on a previous Project as opposed to creating a new Project.

    Is it possible to, instead of prompting the Open Map window on launch, prompt the Manage Projects window on launch?

  11. rotate polygons

    Add the ability to rotate a polygon. For example, if you have a footprint (building pad for example) and you what to try to see how it fits on the ground, being able to rotate (as well as drag as we currently can do) would be very helpful

    The title of the track profile graph is now "Profile - Track" in TNP 10.42. It would be useful to have the title be the actual name of the track. I post profiles to a hiking website and it gets confusing if all of the profiles have the same name. Attached is how it worked in TNP 9.2.

  13. Import GPX files with several layer types using a single import step

    The Web Planner offers export of Markers and Routes and Tracks into a single GPX file. But the import of that GPX file to TNP requires several steps to import all data elements. Furthermore, for any GPX file, I may not know which layer types are present.

  14. Additional Backup Option

    In the realm of automatic project backups, create a 3rd tab/option/window that automatically backs up all "dirty" i.e. changed projects when exiting TNP. In a Preference option, allow setting of a different subdirectory and/or drive than the current default and more importantly, rather than a replace/overwrite option for name saving, let TNP automatically append the current date/time stamp on to the project name as a suffix in a format of yyyy/mm/dd hh:min:sec so that they can be sorted. If feasible and practical, this feature could be extended to "subfiles" such as markers, tracks, etc, whenever a project is exited. The…

  15. Increase number of export/import fields- Default settings during import/export

    In markers and possibly other functions, increase the number of data fields capable of being imported/exported, such as symbol, line, font size and and all colors; Bottom line, if it has a fill-in editable box within a drop down window in TNP, those fieldsshould be capable of being imported/exported, assuming blanks are set to a tab-drop down options that are to be used only during import/exports (and do not affect the "standard" defaults). Also, it would be easier to track/use if TNP inserted or removed as appropriate a header that contained the field names.

  16. Weather radar layer

    Just how there are street and label and landmark layers, it would be extremely helpful to have a high-resolution radar layer (ie: useful radar, not blobs). This is present on the TNP Web version, as it is already part of the embedded Google maps I'm sure, but having it on the Desktop client would be excellent. This would allow for easier reference to when weather should hit what specific markers. More importantly, it allows for beautiful TNP printouts with a radar layer on top.

    Considerations:
    * Resolution
    * Additional layers along this concept - cloud cover, temperature, wind
    * Obviously…

  17. Extend the compatibility of TNP and ESRI ArcGIS by including import of ESRI LPK along with SHP to generate TNP Overlays.

    The ESRI LPK Layer Package has become another valuable source of GIS info that would be useful for TNP Overlays, along with SHP.

  18. ADD SLOPE (VS GRADE)

    On the Profile display, "Grade" is shown. In the work I do, adding "Slope" (just to the right of the existing "grade %" would be VERY helpful. I am involved in back-country rescue and being able to plot a "slope" of a course, or determine the slope of a mountain side is more meaningful to our folks as avalanche potential is measured in terms of the slope of a mountainside - Maybe have the option to select Grade, Slope or "both" in the display could be useful too.

  20. Recognize Magenta and DarkMagenta colors when Importing Tracks

    Description:
    Various colors can be assigned to Tracks in TNP. These are intended to be universal colors, so they work in BaseCamp and Google Earth as well (this is awesome) upon Export. However, I've noticed that TNP does not properly Import Magenta and DarkMagenta. It defaults to Red, which I assume is the default Track color, instead of being the assigned color like all the other colors.

    Repro:
    1. Open attached TNP Export.gpx in BaseCamp and acknowledge multiple Tracks of various colors to show intended function in addition to Magenta and Dark Magenta.
    2. Open that same file in TNP,…
