A Banner For Lists Is On The PQ Page

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

At the top of the Pocket Query page is a banner with a button all about downloading "Lists".  This is gonna be super confusing to people.  It's nice to know about Lists, but that function has nothing to do with Pocket Queries.

I like that this topic is "HOT" with zero replies! or, now, one.

Yes, it does seem odd to put info about lists and Garmin on the PQ page...

In the olden days, you had to create a pocket query of a bookmark list in order to get a GPX file that could be loaded onto your handheld GPS.  That uses one of your daily quota of PQ's.

 

The Garmin Express download offers a way for Garmin users to skip the pocket query step and download the list directly.

 

Since the user who's unaware of the Garmin Express feature would be coming to this page to run a pocket query of the list in the old fashioned way, it's a logical page on which to alert that user that there is an alternative which may or may not be useful to them.  To my memory, the banner has been there for quite some time.  It's not a bug or anything, but intentional.
