[BUG] Zero length route in Pocket Query

Recommended Posts

I created a route using Google MyMaps, with the start point as my hotel in Las Vegas, out to Lake Mead/Hoover Dam.

 

I then dragged the route up to the scenic route and then added a third waypoint as my hotel. This effectively created a round-trip hotel - Hoover Dam - Hotel.

 

I saved it as a KML file, opened it using Pocket Queries > Upload a route and saved it. Then I tried to create a PQ and got a single point route,

 

I opened the kml file with Google Earth and it looked OK.

 

I went back to MyMaps and dragged the end point to somewhere else and repeated the process. This time all was OK.

 

It looks as if the PQ process doesn't like routes with the same start and end location

This Bug still exists, are there any plans to fix it?

Simple solution is to create two routes. I suspect this happens so rarely and has such minor impact that it at the bottom of the priority list.

I'd go this way:

Create and export (ie: save) your route (technically a track):

Open the gpx and copy the content to the clipboard. Get the caches with GSAK's GetCachesAlongARoute macro:
