At the moment there is only setting concerning display of points on the map.

Draw Track Altitude

Set whether to consider the altitude when drawing the route on the map. When the switch is off, all points are placed at ground level. When the switch is turned on, the points are placed relative to the ground.

Note: The current version does not correctly set the altitude when the switch is turned on. We are looking for a correction method.

Draw Mapicon on Track
When displaying the route on the map, the recorded point is displayed with a yellow marker. Not all points are displayed depending on the magnification of the screen display.
Invert Slider Direction on map
When the switch is turned on, the upper direction of the slider becomes the start position of the path. When the switch is turned off, the lower side of the slider becomes the start position of the path.
Draw Positioning Time / Draw Moving Speed
This setting is effective only when "Draw Mapicon on Track" is turned on.

At the point on the map, the time when this point was recorded and the moving speed from the previous point are displayed. It is not displayed when the read log does not include information on the positioning time.
Export Altitude
Maintain advanced information when saving the log to a file. If the saved logs are displayed in Google Earth, please turn off when the route gets stuck on the ground.
