Oruxmaps and waypoints

Sun 22 Aug, 2021 8:20 pm

I have managed to get OruxMaps working on the phone with the help of Keith.
There are many things I have yet to work out but the major one is how to use UTM coordinates to create a waypoint.
I know how to create a waypoint using the map by clicking on the button, but not how by typing in the Easting and Northing coordinates.
I could do that on my old Garmin so I hope it is possible using OM.
Any advice would be most appreciated.

A cool feature which made a big difference for me is the ability to have transparent menus and buttons. Provides a lot more map visibility.

Use the custom background colour in settings/user interface/colours. Make the colour transparent it's the white/grey square colour.

Thanks Keith.
Your instructions were just what I needed.
I will try the transparent buttons.

The software development process creates software application that meets exacting functional and technical specifications of the organization. During this stage the software engineers perform different processes which includes requirements analysis, software design and testing by Requirements analysis is the first step of software design in which the technical experts determine the exact requirements of the organization to install software. These requirements define the functionality, usability, security, maintenance, compatibility and any other aspect that must be considered for an application to be developed and implemented. Software engineer then analyzes the requirements to decide on software design including database development, web server implementation, client server integration, desktop software design and much more.
