Topic: Hiding track line between points
(Igor from Help System told me to make this request here)
Sometimes when the GPS/GSM signal is lost for some minutes, the track lines cause more problems than it helps in visualizing the current locations (like, signal is lost before going from one side of a river to the other, then a straight line to the new location a couple of minutes later, very far from the bridge heh)
Likewise, when the vehicle goes around circling a small place/area various times, the image gets overloaded with a lot of lines.
I would like to request the inclusion of an option to make the line thinner (1px) and hide (0px?) the track between the points on the "Tracks" menu, where you can select an interval and color and pixel size, making the map show only the dots with the coordinates received.
I changed the pixel size to 1px (with firebug help), it worked -- and the thinner line is much more pleasing on the "small area circling" episodes -- why we have only 3px minimum? Sadly, changing that to zero did not work, so it seems that you will need to make a little change in the backend too.
Could you forward to the devs this request and tell if it can be done?
Here is a mashup I made to illustrate what an "invisible" line looks like
