  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Selection Inconsistencies

    A selected item (marker, track…) is indicated with a dotted line as "Current" in the display if and only if the selection is made by the corresponding Layer tool.
    But selections for editing may be made in ways other than by using the Layer tool (e.g. right-click with any tool, a very worthwhile capability). However, then there may be an uncertainty, or no indication at all, of which item is being edited.
    Suggestion: Always use the dotted line indication of selection ("Current"), whenever an item is selected for any editing, even if the item is not selected by the corresponding…

  8. Include USGS 1:24000 Quad name with every Find Placename Match

    A Find Placename search may result in a long list of matches esp. if the keyword is common. The associated Quad names may be very useful in filtering for the desired Match. Sometimes TNP includes the Quad name with a match, sometimes not, even with identical match names. Suggestion: Include the Quad name for every Match. (If the quad name is always included, I can ignore it, but I cannot include the name as part of the filtering if it is not given.)
    The Nearest 15 is also a useful filter; the GNIS Category is often more entertaining than useful.

  9. Preference changes may be simplified and made more intuitive by offering MiniPref selector windows that would be always displayed.

    The user's choice of a "MiniPref" window or selector could be displayed at all times (not buried under numerous clicks), making commonly-changed Preferences more available and obvious and with less "Learning Curve" for the new user. This small window might be placed (floated) by the user over an unused area, perhaps over the Compass Control Bar or Toolbar if space does not allow embedding, or even over a corner of the map itself as is done now with the (optional) "Alt. Edition" selector in the lower left corner of the map. The functionality in a MiniPref would be identical to…

  10. Range-Bearing Line tweaks

    Allow editing of various RBL features in the same way that Routes (and associated Waypoints) can be edited now. Unfortunately, when an RBL is converted to a route and so edited and converted back to an RBL, the edited features are dropped: Highlighting, font, background, editing the field at the arrowhead. Do we really need precision to 1/10000 mile, even on the 1:3600 photos?

  11. Smart Track Append

    When I create tracks from the overlay layer created by a shapefile, the tracks are often broken up into segments. If I want just one track from two segments, I have to be very careful of the order of the track I choose when I do the append. For example, I pick out two trails that are two segments of the same trail so track one goes from A to B and track two goes from B to C. When I do the append operation, I have to make sure I append track two to track one. If I append…

  14. I am know to pick good campsites

    Here in the NW it is wise to get sunshine in camp, even more so at higher elevations in deep forest. So I would like to see the suns path animated throughout a day, and with the sun in the proper location for whatever time of the year, In 3D mode with the shadows show from ground level wherever your location might be.

  15. faster rendering

    - faster rendering that does not slow the system down as much for large data sets / many tracks. Maybe some sort of culling based on zoom or based on window area? I don't know graphics enough to be conversant on the topic in any more detail.

  16. Curved Line Segments

    Along a closed route (which is essentially a polygon), add the ability to specify cord length and radius (for curved plot plan legs.)
